Gaining Muscular Control in Lincoln

There's ways to gain muscle control to help combat different muscular deseases. If you're ready to learn more about Horizon Physical Therapy's treatments to gain more muscle control make sure you schedule an appointment

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.

Extremely Helpful

I have dealt with Horizon Physical Therapy twice.  Both times I have been impressed with the quality of care I received.  The entire staff is cordial and efficient.  Shane was easy to work with, kind, and extremely helpful.  The quality of care I received shortened my recovery time.

Feeling Better and Having Less Migraines

I've come to Horizon to address a few different health issues and every time I've been so thankful and grateful for all of the staff's help.  I've had good outcomes every time.  They are simply wonderful!  I really am happy to have crossed paths with Tara.  It was obvious she loves what she does and cares about her clients.  She's the best!  Thank you!  -And feeling better and having less migraines is the cherry on top of the cake!

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!

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!

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.

Back to Activity

I hurt my shoulder last April & muddled through the summer, and then started PT.  Shane tried a lot of different things with little relief so he referred me to Tara.  She is great!  Patiently worked through a series of exercises & stretches, to relieve the pain and get me back to activity.

Faster Recovery

My recovery after ankle surgery was benefited greatly by my experience with Horizon.  I was very impressed with the progression of care and the focus on localized issues moving to larger muscle groups and later to inter-related systems that provide a long-term holistic approach to treatment.  This was my second ankle surgery on the same foot, and my recovery was faster and I am stronger and more balance this round in no small part to the work by the Horizon Team.

Really Cares

My experience with Horizon PT was excellent.  The staff is very friendly & knowledgeable.  Scheduling appointments is very easy as well.  I had Tara for the majority of my visits & I loved her.  She always explained exercises super well and answered all of my questions.  She put a smile on my face and made my painful journey a little less so.  Horizon PT really cares about the quality of your care.

She Fixed It

Dr. Tara helped me out a lot.  I lived with pain for about 3-4 years in my neck.  She fixed it.

I stayed guarded so I don't injure myself; but it is very reassuring to know she's here.
