Patient Information

In addition to spinal manipulation, rehabilitation, and acupuncture, there are a wide variety of physiologic therapeutic modalities we use at Simone Physical Medicine. These therapies influence the body from the outside rather than trying to change the body chemistry from the inside as is seen with medication. Methods of physiologic therapeutics we use are heat, ice, ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation, diathermy, and specific exercises and stretches tailored to your condition. Following is a brief explanation of these therapies:

Treatment at the Simone Physical Medicine is a team effort. We will educate you about your problems, help relieve your symptoms, and help rehabilitate your injured areas, but we expect you to follow our advice. This is the only way we can get your health under control and keep it there.

Please feel free to call Jannine or Dr. Simone at the office or at home if you have any questions or problems. We are available 24 hours a day. Call the office at 833-2332. If we are not available, our home phone number will be on our answering machine.

Helpful Tips (Check with your physician before using these tips)

  1. Sleep on your side and hug a pillow, put another pillow between your knees and place one under your head.
  2. Try to minimize bending at the waist.
  3. When sitting, keep your knees elevated.
  4. When you are suffering muscle pain you may inflame the tissues with heat. It is doubtful you will cause damage with ice.
  5. Contact your doctor if you experience headaches different from what you have had in the past.
  6. Remember the five words that will often get you in trouble--"Maybe It Will Go Away".
