Absolute Game Changer

Robby B. photoWhen my wife first approached me with the idea of seeing a chiropractor as a family, I’ll be the first admit I was slightly skeptical. During our first sit down with Dr. Dave, I said “I feel fine! No complaints here!” (typical Dad response). Fast forward to the first scan results: I needed the most help. We discovered that a soccer injury from almost 15 years ago was affecting my lower back and hips in a pretty big way. And not to forget, all of those soccer headers over the years had really done a number on my neck. Chiropractic care has been an absolute game changer for our family. When I would come home from a long day of work, I would take ibuprofen or tylenol to help with any back/neck pain. I haven’t had to do that since starting treatment! In the past, I dealt with seasonal allergies, especially in the spring. I am happy to report I have had little to no symptoms this year. I can breathe! My posture as also greatly improved. Our family can’t compliment Dr. Dave and his team enough! They are all so welcoming and make you feel like you’re part of the HFC family. During treatment sessions, Dr. Dave often utilizes a technique that essentially is a big ol’ hug.I felt the need to awkwardly name it “The Embrace”. Ask for “The Embrace” next time you’re there! It’s pretty great!

Conceived Right Away and Had an Easy Pregnancy

photo of Christin W.“I started chiro care 8 years ago because I had chronic headaches and a lot of lower back pain. I was always popping Ibuprofen to fight the pain and discomfort. The back pain affected my sleep and the headaches affected my ability to be my best at work. There were days I had trouble getting out of bed because I consistently would wake with a headache….

Since seeing Dr. Dave I can not even tell you the last time I had a headache… let alone pop a painkiller! I know it has been more than a year!

I believe chiro care helped me get pregnant right away. In March 2016 I was told that I was going to have a difficult time conceiving…. and I was pregnant in April 2016 (proved them wrong!). I saw Dr. Dave through the entire pregnancy and, I believe, because of this, all of the aches and pains people expect throughout pregnancy did not affect me. I never struggled sleeping, I did not have any pelvic discomfort, I do not have any back pain until the very end of the pregnancy, I was able to work out at the gym and work (on my feet all day) until the day my water broke!

The team at Hanson Family Chiropractic is just amazing! I, honestly, have never met a group of nicer individuals. They put their patients first and are truly devoted to the well being of everyone who walks into the office. The Hanson Family Chiropractic environment is like one you do not come across often! I have nothing but positive things to say about the Hanson Family Chiro Staff! ”

A Life-Long Struggle with Back Pain

Catherine and Dr. Dave.“I have struggled with back pain most of my life as a result of sports, bad posture and an abnormal curvature of my spine. By the time I started seeing Dr. Dave I couldn’t lay flat on my back at all and sleeping was painful and uncomfortable. I’ve also struggled with infertility and my first pregnancy after IVF was very unhealthy and my son was born with a lot of problems.

After seeing Dr. Dave my back pain has cleared up quickly. We also did another round of IVF, got pregnant easily and so far no issues. I’m hopeful this will continue to be a healthy and uneventful pregnancy under Dr. Dave’s care.

Dr. Dave and his tribe are like family. They are caring, positive and always greet me at the door with a smile. They hold my son while I get adjusted and share in our joys and progress. I love everything about each one of them.”

Chiropractic has helped with Sinus Infections

Photo of clientI started chiropractic care after I saw first hand how it positively affected my son’s health and well being. My main areas of concern were my constant sinus infections and some injuries due to being very involved in physical activity like running and Crossfit. Everytime I caught a cold it would turn into a sinus infection. Due to constantly being on antibiotics, I was concerned and wanted to explore more of a holistic, healthy approach to treating them. Since going to Dr. Dave, I have not gotten one sinus infection, despite a couple of colds! I have also recovered very quickly when I have injured myself. Dr. Dave has allowed me to rebound quickly and get back in the gym!

I haven’t been on an antibiotic for months! My primary care physician wanted me to see an ear, nose and throat specialist because of my chronic sinus infections. I didn’t need an ENT, I just needed chiropractic care!! I also seldom get headaches, which is a huge milestone considering I used to get them a couple times a week! -S.S.

They all are the best. I walk in feeling the positive energy. I always feel welcomed and very comfortable.

Dr. Dave has been the first person to congratulate my pregnancy milestones

Photo of Lissa“I was referred to Dr. Dave by a friend who heard me talking about all of my ‘weird’ health concerns. I felt like every conversation I had about my health started with describing symptoms that just didn’t fit ‘the norm’. I talked with my primary care physician and endocrinologist about just feeling ‘off’ in multiple systems and trying to find some answers. My endocrinologist tried to adjust my thyroid medication for Grave’s Disease and my primary care physician only treated symptoms that were associated with specific conditions such as sinus infections and vertigo. I spent about 6 months dealing with symptoms such as infections, dizziness, fatigue, weight fluctuation, and frustration with conceiving.

I have always been an athlete and have been very in touch with how my body feels and responds to the demands that I place on it. My greatest concern was just losing touch with my body and not understanding why or what to do about it. Dr. Dave was the first person to look at my concerns, my symptoms, my scans, and my ‘weird’ and tell me it made sense and that he had a plan.

About one month after I started with Dr. Dave my husband and I found out we were expecting. My symptoms of dizziness, fatigue, and neck pain all resolved within 6 weeks of care. My scans matched the improvements I was feeling, even with the changes my body was experiencing during my first trimester. I have not had a cold or infection or any major health concerns in the past 6 months. My thyroid medication dose has been the same (even with a pregnancy!), and that hasn’t been something that has been consistent for me more than 3 months in a row without a dosage change in 4 years!

It has been seamless to transition from treating my original health concerns to following me through pre-natal and maintenance chiropractic care weekly, allowing me to feel my best every week. Dr. Dave has been the first person to congratulate my pregnancy milestones, and the family atmosphere at Hanson Family Chiropractic is something I feel with every visit and every time I call.”

I am back to myself!

Photo of Liz “I started chiropractic care after two years of having terrible neck and back issues. I was in and out of doctor appointments, tests, X-rays and even had my gallbladder out. I felt very defeated after getting zero answers and every test coming back ‘normal’ and everything we tried was no help. It got to a point where I couldn’t sleep, exercise, or play with my daughter. I’ve tried pain meds, physical therapy, x-rays, blood work, body scans, colonoscopy, endoscopy and gallbladder removal.

Since starting chiropractic care…
-I am slowly running with no pain.
-I am sleeping through the night.
-I am able to do everything I love with my daughter.
-I am BACK TO MYSELF!

I have always been so skeptical of chiropractic care and I can’t say enough about everyone at the clinic! I will always recommend anyone to Dr. Dave. I had such an incredible experience!” -L.R.

An amazing feeling

“My back problems started at work about 10 years ago where I had to lift heavy machine parts. I’ve tried pain medications, steroids, exercises, as a final resort, surgery was recommended as the only option left. The pain, depending on the intensity, affected my daily life. There were days where I was unable to do anything and nothing seemed to ease the pain and discomfort. My grandson is a patient at HFC and I saw the great results he had as a result of seeing Dr. Dave. I can’t think of a better referral. For the first time since I can remember, I do not have pain in my back. What an amazing feeling! Dr. Dave is terrific. It is a pleasure walking into the doctor’s office. The team is so accommodating, professional and kind. Dr Dave takes time to thoroughly explain everything in a way that is easy to understand.”

A true blessing

Steve with doctor “Initially, my wife was the one who was receiving chiropractic care. She was pregnant at the time and doing research about newborns. She was referred to HFC due to the qualifications that were necessary for infant care. Therefore, I learned the benefits of chiropractic care. At first, I was very skeptical because I had never let anyone adjust anything in my body before. However, after taking a chance, chiropractic care has been one of the greatest blessings in my life, helping my general health, mental stability, emotional stability, and physical ability.

HFC has been a breath of fresh air and a hope for true, genuine, and caring doctors in this impersonal generation where the love has grown cold. Dr. Dave goes beyond just being a business. He has demonstrated to me that patients come before the business. In other words, we live in an economy where money and greed have taken top priority over the care and concern of the patients. Not at HFC! The care and love I’ve received has blown me away – always willing to meet the needs of their patients. I work a job that is always fluctuating in hours but HFC has always compromised to meet my schedule and I am so grateful. Anyone reading this please know that HFC is built on integrity. They are honest, caring, genuine, knowledgeable, trustworthy and loving. HFC has given me new hope, and a new outlook on doctors that are serving in the world today! My energy level, sinuses, headaches, and stress points have relieved in pressure. Overtime, my emotional, mental, physical ability increased and became stable. My muscles became a lot more relaxed. Interestingly, I felt like my body and mental capacity had increased to handle stress more calmly. Now, I feel my whole body responding in unity and functioning smoothly! HFC has been a true blessing from God-for the body is a temple! I would absolutely recommend HFC to friends and family! There hasn’t been a better decision I’ve made in my life than taking a chance in chiropractic care. I have shared it with many people including my friends and family. My aunt is now going to a similar chiropractor that Dr. Dave suggested because of her location. Also, my father is going to another chiropractor in Wisconsin that has the same concept and technology as Dr. Dave. I always thought chiropractic care was a scam and a waste of money. I have scoliosis and bad posture. Though my body might not be transformed, my mental, emotional, and physical health and stability has changed! I can’t quite explain it, but I feel like a new man and my results on my test scores show it – chiropractic care works! Choose HFC. You won’t be disappointed!” -S.M.

My neck stiffness was immediately relieved

“I wanted to see a chiropractor for relief of symptoms from MS and stomach problems. Hanson Family Chiropractic is very welcoming, clean and tidy. You are always greeted with a smile. The staff are very friendly and they always ask how you are doing and actually care! Dr. Hanson clearly explains everything he does, and he welcomes questions and directly answers them. Sometimes the adjustments are a little uncomfortable but never painful. I always feel immediate relief after the adjustment. My neck stiffness was immediately relieved. I also noticed I’ve been sleeping better. My parents tell me they have noticed my thinking and speech is clearer than it used to be. I don’t have pain in the middle of my back anymore. Overall I really enjoy going to HFC. They are so friendly and I truly feel they care about how I feel and making me feel better. I would recommend HFC to friends and family because I feel so much better! No more back pain! No more jumbled thoughts! And a friendly, caring, and supportive atmosphere to boot!” -D.S.

You feel like family

photo of Vicky J “I was eight months pregnant and experiencing SI joint pain. I was in so much pain, walking was difficult, sleeping was difficult and I couldn’t carry my seventeen month old. Immediately I felt better-mentally trusting in Dr. Dave and knowing that my pain would get better over time. And within two weeks the pain was pretty much gone! It’s been day and night from the day I first came in to now. I can walk, carry my daughter, sleep well-I feel prepared to deliver baby #2 without worrying about leg pain! There isn’t anything I don’t like about HFC! Dr. Dave and Kristen are both so warm and inviting. You practically feel like family the minute you walk in the door. I love the open atmosphere of the office and all the resources that are available. Even though I haven’t been able to attend a workshop, it’s been wonderful to have the YouTube links and I’m looking forward to attending one soon. I would recommend HFC to friends and family, and I already have! I tell everyone I know who’s looking for chiro care about HFC. I also tell people who are just interested in a healthier lifestyle and especially mamas about the different workshops. Thank you! I’m so grateful for the care I’ve received-truly it is an answered prayer! I’m looking forward to a long relationship between HFC and my family.” -V.J.

Sleeping really well

photo of Stephanie H “I was suffering from an injury and thought rest would help heal it. When it didn’t, I sought out Dr. Hanson as a final resort. My results were slow and steady-for me that was perfect. It allowed me to work within the limits of my injury and respect my body. I have been sleeping really well since being treated. I had an allergy attack that, I believe, was shortened significantly due to my treatments. I’ve always had an issue with grinding my teeth at night that results in headaches in the AM. I have found my issue to be greatly reduced in having treatments with Dr. Hanson. Other benefits I’ve experienced-shortened allergy season, reduced menstrual cramps, better sleep and fewer headaches. I would recommend HFC to friends and family. I was on the fence about chiropractic care, but after feeling the difference it’s made in my movement I will continue to get treated. The friendly atmosphere is what kept me coming back. I always feel like I’m walking into a friend’s house.” -S.H.

Dave and his team are simply amazing!

Photo of Renee“I first came to Dr. Dave for my migraines. I’ve been struggling with them for 6 years or so, and they were only getting worse. I was on medication that was semi-controlling them, but the side effects were just as bad as the migraines themselves.

My migraines would last a week at a time and nothing seemed to work to calm them down. Between the migraines and the medicine, I was constantly skipping school/work and workouts because of the pain. I eventually got tired of just dealing with it, and on a recommendation from my CrossFit coach, I decided to take a different approach and try chiropractic treatments.
After just a few weeks of treatments, I have been MIGRAINE FREE for going on 2 months! All my normal triggers no longer affect me, and I’ve stopped worrying about encountering them. I no longer carry around my medication with me everywhere I go. I feel like a whole new person!
I was a bit nervous at first, but the positive energy is intoxicating, it instantly makes you feel like you’re at home. I wish I would have came to Dave sooner!”
-R.K.

It literally was gone

“I walked in to see Dr. Dave after having Vertigo for over 2 days straight, and it literally was gone after one adjustment! I was even able to walk my kids to the park that night to play! Dr. Dave was a hero in my family’s eyes for sure!”
-S.F.

Drastically changed my life

“I had herniated discs and back muscle spasms that began sometime around March of 2014. It lasted for several months. I’m not sure of the causes but it was exacerbated by heavy lifting and impact sports; at its worst, I could not move ANY part of my body without excruciating pain – couldn’t sit, stand or lie comfortably. The pain was severe. I tried other chiropractors, massage, heat, stretching, strength training. It affected my daily life as a mom and athlete, because I could not move without pain – couldn’t lift my kids or play with them; couldn’t perform my regular physical activities. And the pain and lack of activity was making me depressed and miserable. I was referred to Dr. Dave through my trainers at our CrossFit gym, Dave and Sarah Fecht. It has drastically changed my life by helping to eliminate the pain, make my body feel balanced and healthy, and enabled me to feel strong and confident in my intense workout regimen and heavy lifting. I believe very strongly in chiropractic and will continue to bring my family and myself in for regular adjustments. Dr. Dave and his team make going to the doctor fun and relaxing. We look forward to our weekly visits and I feel completely supported in my athletic and ‘whole-body’ healthy and goals.”

Providing Excellent Chiropractic Care

“The attention to maintaining a healthy environment with organic food and pure water is wonderful. It is obvious Dr. Hanson and Kristen care very much about their patients in every aspect of providing excellent chiropractic healthcare.”

Shoulder Pain Gone

photo of Melinda“My decision to seek chiropractic care initially began from experiencing pain in my right shoulder. I was new to CrossFit and I didn’t want to stop participating. I have had poor posture my whole life and soreness in my middle and lower back was just something I got used to. These two issues (combined) are what prompted me to reach out to some friends at the gym – and they all recommended me to Dr. Dave.

The pain in my shoulder is completely gone- as is any pain in my lower and middle back. My fitness performance has also improved. This has caused my overall stress level to drop and I feel more focused during the day. I have a much better attitude these days (just ask my husband and my sons), too!

Dr. Dave has been a real partner during this process. He always has been open and clear about his strategy for my care and has been willing to answer all of my questions with candor. I also appreciate his humor and calm approach. Kristen and Natasha have been so forgiving with my schedule and have ALWAYS made time for me. My kids also love the fruit and infused water. They think it’s a real treat!”

I’m enjoying better health thanks to chiropractic care!

Photo of Laura“I have struggled with sinus problems since I was a child, but in the past five years they had become worse. It seemed as if I was ALWAYS sick. I had been diagnosed with a sinus infection almost every month for over the last two years. I was put on numerous antibiotics that seemed to help but never fully rid me of the infection. I was exhausted of going to the doctor and most of all my body was just exhausted. I had no energy. Sleep was the one thing that made me feel a bit better, yet I had problems sleeping too. I realized at 26 years of age I should have energy and not be so exhausted all the time. I was tired of the never-ending cycle of antibiotics. I was tired of being sick and tired! So, I looked into other avenues for sinus issues and stumbled upon chiropractic care. After calling a few places, Hanson Family Chiropractic seemed like a great fit for me!

Read More from Laura B. »

Since starting chiropractic care, I have not had a sinus infection or been sick! Which is HUGE! The first thing I noticed was that I was sleeping much better. After a few weeks I noticed an increase in energy. I overall just feel better, which has helped me be more productive at work and less stressed out all the time.
My first impression of Hanson Family Chiropractic was when I initially contacted them to inquire about it. Natasha was absolutely awesome. She was so kind, very informative, and made me feel welcome before I had even made my first appointment. Dr. Dave has also been great! It’s really cool to see someone who is passionate about what they do and excited to help people. I felt hopeful after leaving there the first day, which was something I had not felt in a while. The WHOLE staff is wonderful and it’s refreshing to go to a place where everyone enjoys what they do and makes you feel welcome, comfortable, and excited to be there.”

Enjoyable, easy process

dr-dave-and-a-n“I was hesitant to start chiropractic care but the pain in my lower back gradually worsened to the point that I needed to do something about it. After speaking with Dr. Dave, I saw that on top of lower back pain, my sinus issues and Crohn’s disease could also be impacted by my poor spinal health. The first sign of improvement for me was a much easier time breathing through my nose. I felt very clear after each appointment. My back pain went away as well and my Crohn’s symptoms lessened little by little.

The process has been thoroughly enjoyable and easy for me. The appointments are quick and painless, and you are always greeted by a warm smile and “hello” by all. Thank you for changing my perceptions about chiropractic care!”

Wish I began treatment years ago!
