Physical therapy is often prescribed as treatment for many foot and ankle problems and injuries, as well as a post-surgery regimen to help with healing and recovery. Physical therapy is used to strengthen muscles, increase flexibility and range of motion, promote balance, and support proper structural alignment. It can also help alleviate pain and swelling. Physical therapy can incorporate a range of treatments based on the patient’s condition, health, and ailment or injury, including targeted exercises and stretches, ultrasound, diathermy, electrical stimulation, massage, and heat and cold applications.
Such a pleasant experience. I had an emergency foot problem and Dr.Hochstein took me in the next day. He is such a personable, kind person and I would recommend him to anybody!
Recently I sent a dear friend to Dr. Hochstein for a chronic non-healing wound. The wound had been open for over a year and other health care providers in the area had been unsuccessful in getting it to heal. Not only did Dr. Hochstein heal her wound, but within a matter of weeks. She raved […]

Dr. Alec Hochstein and his staff at Great Neck Family Foot Care are terrific. I have had a diabetic wound that would not heal for 15 years.
