Our pain relief procedures can get you back on your feet and enjoying life again. Get your back and neck pain under control without drugs or surgery.
We understand how debilitating and chronic back pain can be. Our team of knee joint pain specialists can help assess your symptoms and provide a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
If you’re suffering from painful or sore back, – it’s very easy to think that it’s “just something that comes with age”, it’s a bit of “wear and tear”, or that it’s nothing and it’ll go away on its own.
You may have tried stretching, resting, heat, ice, maybe even just pushing through it – but it doesn’t seem to be getting any better!
If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone – we hear this type of thing all the time. In fact, back pain is one of THE most common problems that we see in our Kearney and Lincoln physical medicine clinics.
When presented with invasive and expensive options, such as back surgery and continual use of pain medications, it seems like there are no good, nor long-term solutions for your pain relief.
Common Causes of Back Pain
Diagnostic terms which describe specific types of neck pain and back pain include:
- Degenerative Disc Disease

- Bulging Disc
- Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

When should I see a doctor if I have back pain or neck pain?
If you suffer from back pain or neck pain, you should seek treatment intervention as soon as possible. Individualized treatment can help alleviate your symptoms, whether it is a new problem, are current problem, or along-term situation. While it is never too late to address your back pain and neck pain, the earlier the issue is addressed the more quickly you will likely respond to treatment. Therefore, it is always better to take action now, rather than to wait.
You may not realize how important your neck is until you suffer from neck pain. It becomes difficult to just look at your phone or nod your head “yes” and “no.” The pain-free function of your neck is essential to your life, which is why we offer non-invasive solutions to those living with neck pain in the Kearney and Lincoln area.
Back pain can also interrupt your life. Many people with severe back pain find they can no longer pick up their grandchildren or even pick up a grocery bag off the floor. Your ability to lift items, get out of bed or even get on the floor to play with your children can be severely limited with back pain. You do not need to suffer. Schrock Medical treats people just like you each and every day. Helping them to regain their meaningful life!
How is Back Pain and Neck Pain Treated?
Many physicians will recommend surgeries or heavy doses of medication to deal with these causes of back pain. However, most people who suffer from back pain don’t want to take extended time off work for surgeries or rely on long-term drug plans. Here at Schrock Medical, we focus on drug free non-surgical intervention to assist you in healing from back and neck issues.
Schrock Medical’s treatment for back pain and neck pain focuses on the structures that support the spine and its joints, including muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The general approach is to reduce pain and stiffness, strengthen muscles and restore mobility.
Our medical team will perform an examination to determine the factors contributing to your back pain or neck pain. They will create a customized treatment plan for your individual needs to decrease pain, increase flexibility, improve strength, and ultimately restore skilled function.
The specific treatment is individualized for each patient, dependent on the outcome of the evaluation and ongoing spinal assessment as treatment progresses. The overall goal is to return to normal function.

- Medical Wave Therapy
- Cold Laser Therapy
