  • Are topical sprays good for sprains?

    They can help assist with minor to moderate Grade 1 or 2 sprains in the early stages yes, however the more intense sprains such as a Grade 3 may require heavier medication or possibly surgical intervention depending on the type. Hopefully this helps however you may want to talk to your PCP, ortho, or pain management MDs for further assistance. READ MORE

  • What can I do for my chronic pain?

    Chronic pain is difficult to manage for many people, as it becomes almost ingrained into your conciousness of reality and everday life. Also fear avoidance as a secondary symptom may take hold and change your willingness to perform activities that you may normally perform had you not experienced these symptoms. There are a multitude of studies that have shown that a combination of Pain Management with Physical Therapeutic interventions can assist with pain modification and truly address both your current pain and also the root causative factors of what started your pain initially. Talk to a PCP and PT and get evaluated so that you can start the process of helping yourself out of your current situation. READ MORE

“It has always been my dream, from an early age, to help people to the best of my ability and I truly believe that Physical Therapy offers me that ability to do so. As a person struggling with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), I am in a unique position to understand the complexities, trials, and tribulations that a person can go through from a debilitating condition. I make it my business to give every patient the time and effort that they deserve in order to fulfill their goals however big or small they may be.” as stated by the doctor. 

He meets one-on-one with every patient, listens to their story and concerns, and works with them to develop a treatment that is specific to them and their injury. Above it all, Dr. Marcolin, or Greg as his patients know him, takes the utmost honor and pride in the ability to help so many individuals and families get back to the activities they love.

In addition to being a member of the American Physical Therapy Association and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, he is board-certified through the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (ABPMR). The ABPMR was established in 1947 as the certifying body for the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation under the American Board of Medical Specialties. 

After earning his bachelor’s degree in Health & Nutrition Sciences from CUNY Brooklyn College in 2007, Dr. Marcolin went on to obtain his Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) degree from SUNY Downstate Health Sciences University in 2012. From 2012 until 2017, he served as the Clinical Director of Physical Therapy at Evolve Physical Therapy Fit for Life before joining the OceanView team.
