Keep your muscles moving
- General exercises - a range of motion and stretching exercises can help combat the inevitable inward movement of the limbs as muscles and tendons shorten. Limbs tend to become fixed in position, and these types of activities can help keep them mobile for longer. Standard low-impact aerobic exercises such as walking and swimming can also help slow the disease's progression.
- Breathing assistance - as the muscles used for breathing become weaker, it may be necessary to use devices to help improve oxygen delivery through the night. In the most severe cases, a patient may need to use a ventilator to breathe on their behalf.
- Mobility aids - canes, wheelchairs, and walkers.
- Braces - these keep muscles and tendons stretched and help slow their shortening. They also give added support to the user when moving.
Very Caring Physical Therapist
Was referred here by my provider for some specialized work in my neck.
Fantastic & Amazing
Very thorough and caring. They did (do) a fantastic job. My experience here has been amazing. I went from having no feeling in my hand and extreme pain to feeling great. I really like Shane and all the staff at Horizon
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.
The staff is always very friendly. Shane is a very good listener and does an excellent job.
