The human body’s ability to transform and adapt at different stages of our lives – is the driving factor behind Dr. Vitaly’s passion for promoting rehabilitation. He is a strong advocate of postural and body mechanic reeducation and training, using those gains to enhance overall movement, performance, and quality of living. Keen awareness of the human body, over 14 years of experience in the field, has allowed him to understand and manage chronic pain, lower back, and sacral-pelvic dysfunction, shoulder pathologies and impairments of the lower extremities to name a few.
Constantly at the forefront of research and continuing education, Dr. Vitaly is always striving for excellence in the way he does his work. Most recently, he was the Company Physical Therapist for Dear Evan Hansen, helping transition the show into the Music Box Theater; the famous Avenue Q, Once On This Island, Trip Of Love, Godspell, Beautiful: The Carol King Musical, STOMP (off-Broadway) and Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark. He’s also worked with dancers from the American Ballet Theater, New York Ballet Company, world champion Salsa, Jazz, and modern dancers.
Additionally, Dr. Vitaly has been working with the High School Division of Grace Church School and Dwight International School: overseeing games, coordinating with the athletic department on safety and injury prevention for the student body. As well as club soccer team Beyond Soccer NYC.
When he’s not busy working, Dr. Vitaly enjoys taking advantage of this amazing planet. Having recently trekked Mount Kilimanjaro Lemosho Route in five days, Torres Del Paine and Mount Fitz Roy in Patagonia, The Haute Route Swiss Alps for 13 days, the Alta Via 1 Route in the Italian Dolomites for 10 days (six months post ACL reconstruction), Zion and Moab National Parks in Utah, Yosemite National Park in California and many more local and foreign mountain ranges.
Having started his life as a patient, Dr. Vitaly is not one to shy away from adversity. At the age of four, a hot iron burned his entire left hand, requiring intensive mobility work to assure maximum dexterity of the muscles and skin stayed in tacked. At the age of 14, while riding his bike home, he was struck by a car and fractured two lumbar vertebrae as well as tearing the labrum in his shoulder and hip. This injury, but more importantly the subpar rehab that followed, was the turning point in sending Dr. Vitaly into the rehab world. Most recently, while navigating his bike through the busy streets of Manhattan, an uneven pothole through his bike off-kilter and tearing his Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and Medial Meniscus. All these cumulative moments of growth have shaped the empathetic and strong-willed personality that shapes the progress of even the most challenging of patients forward!
