Back Pain

If you have low back pain, you are not alone. At any given time, about 25% of people in the United States report having low back pain within the past 3 months. In most cases, low back pain is mild and disappears on its own. For some people, back pain can return or hang on, leading to a decrease in quality of life or even to disability.

If your low back pain is accompanied by the following symptoms, you should visit your local emergency department immediately:

  • Loss of bowel or bladder control
  • Numbness in the groin or inner thigh

These symptoms might indicate a condition called "cauda equina syndrome," in which nerves at the end of the spinal cord that control bowel and bladder function are being squeezed.

Neck Pain

Neck pain is pain felt in the back of the neck – the upper spine area, just below the head. When certain nerves are affected, the pain can extend beyond the back of the neck to areas such as the upper back, shoulder, and arm. It is estimated that neck pain affects approximately 30% of the US population each year. Neck pain can be caused by sudden trauma such as a fall, sports injury, or car accident, or by long-term problems in the spine.

Neck pain most frequently affects adults aged 30 to 50 years. Some studies indicate that women are more likely to suffer neck pain than men. Poor posture, obesity, smoking, repetitive lifting, office and computer work, and involvement in athletic activity are all risk factors for developing neck pain.

People with neck pain can have difficulty performing activities such as working, driving, playing sports, or simply turning their heads. The majority of neck pain episodes do not require surgery and respond best to physical therapy. Physical therapists design individualized treatment programs to help people with neck pain reduce or eliminate pain, regain normal movement, and get back to their regular activities.

By Far The Best

I've been to a couple PTs in my life and Shane & his staff are by far the best. They are so caring & their therapies are very comprehensive. They educate & train you on the root of your issue, not just treat your ailments. I saw Shane for plantar fasciitis. He was able to relieve my pain & help me adjust the reason for my symptoms. I would highly suggest Horizon PT to anyone in Lincoln!

Friendly, Considerate, and Helpful Team

I was extremely please with the services provided by the pleasant and professional staff at Horizon Physical Therapy. I have received treatment from the team there for 9 months. Now, Thanks to the team's efforts and my home exercises, I am pain-free! The team is friendly, considerate, and helpful in terms of healing, teaching home exercises, and explaining all of the processes during treatments. Functional dry needling recently resolved my pain in a key area as well! I highly recommend Horizon Physical Therapy!

LET’S DO IT!

I have had sciatic nerve pain for a long time, this time was awful.  I came to Horizon, two great people worked with me.  After a few weeks, the pain was still bad.  Shane sat down with me and told me he wanted to try something new that he has had good luck with, it was called dry needling.  I said yes- let's do it!  I had no pain with it, it didn't take long either.  I got up-dropped my cane and walked out of the room with NO PAIN.  It's been over two months and I still have no pain.

Expertise

Shane & Jessica were able to determine what needed to be done to alleviate my foot pain and get me on track with the necessary exercises to maintain good "foot health."  I appreciate their expertise along with coaching in overall foot and hip exercise.

An added bonus is that my hips and lower back feel better too!  Looking forward to continuing an exercise program at Horizon.

Highly Recommend

I have seen many providers and finally got relief after dealing with pain for 1 1/2 years.  My pain went from a 10 to almost no pain.  I highly recommend Shane.  I can finally drive without pain and get back to traveling.
