The Team At Hanson is AMAZING!

S.C.'s Celebration StoryI started treatment because of living with constant tightness and random sharp lower back pain for several years. Yoga stretching was only mildly and inconsistently helpful. I felt like years of contact sports and weight lifting had just taken its toll on my body, and this was the way it was going to be. After seeing Dr. Dave for a month, I had already noticed a dramatic difference in how much better I was moving and experiencing almost no discomfort. I was sleeping more soundly, had more energy, and didn’t feel pain when playing with my young son. It was amazing! After 5 months, I honestly feel the best I’ve felt since my 20’s! The team at Hanson is amazing! Everyone is so friendly and they treat every person like family. Dr. Dave has such an awesome demeanor and wonderful way of explaining things in an easy way to understand. My whole family gets treated at the practice, and we genuinely look forward to our visits!

I’ve Become A Believer

I think I started going to a chiropractor after one of my marathon races. There was no particular injury or anything- just maintenance. Other than having my hips realigned whenever I get adjusted, the biggest improvement I’ve realized is that I don’t get my typical bi-annual sinus infections while I’m getting regular adjustments. I checked with my doctor this past spring and he told me I hadn’t been to see him in over 3 years for a sinus infection. Everyone at HFC is incredibly friendly. The office is a warm and fun environment. I’ve become a believer that regular chiropractic care is beneficial to one’s overall health.


Unparalleled In Terms Of Their True Care For Patients

dr-david-with-andrew-pI work a desk job sitting at a computer, and about 2 years ago I started noticing increasing pain and discomfort in my neck. After stressful or intense days, I would notice it was a lot worse and definitely connected it to positioning and posture with sitting at a laptop all day. I would try to massage my neck throughout the day and stretch it out, which would relieve some of the pain momentarily, but it never lasted. Eventually, it got so bad that I had to do something about it and I started going to a “one and done” chiropractor I had seen in a billboard. This helped a bit, but the care was quite generic and routine.

Since starting Chiropractic this year at Hanson, my neck pain isn’t even a thought anymore, but the level of intentional care I’ve received and other side effects have been so unexpected! I definitely sleep better than I used to, I feel overall more relaxed, and I’m encouraged to adjust my posture throughout the day which of course addresses the root issue of my pain. In addition, through the scanning, Dr. Hanson has been able to show me how my body is responding to my lifestyle and the adjustments. He showed me that my lower back muscles had been unactivated (again due to constant sitting at a desk) and needed strengthening. Through adjustments and my own work, I’ve felt strengthening there, which trickles down to many other benefits.

Dr. Hanson and the team are unparalleled in terms of their true care for patients. The thoughtfulness and connection in patients’ lives is not something you would even look for from a chiropractic office, but it’s the trait that makes them truly stand out among the rest!


Always Lots of Fun

Photo of L.B.Mental health has always been a struggle for me. I hit a point where I wanted to try anything that would help relieve it. Chiropractic came up when I was doing research and the science behind it made me interested. I also was interested in practicing yoga. I wanted my body to run efficiently! I have been on medication/antidepressants since I was 17 and my goal is to get off them completely, if possible. I know chiropractic care is helping me get there and I have already seen the results! Overall I am a happier Lexi. With the help of chiropractic care my body and mind have never worked better together. It felt like my fight or flight state was taking over control for years and I felt trapped.

Since having consistent chiro care in my life I feel more in control and have overall more peace within! I can step back from the anxieties and rationalize with them easier than ever before. I know I am on the path to an even more stress free life! My love for the team at Hanson Family is beyond words. I’ve never felt more welcomed and appreciated. It doesn’t feel like a doctors office, the plants, pictures and atmosphere helps me feel at home. Everyone knows me by name, greets me with smiles and it is always lots of fun!


Feel My Best!

I had sudden severe neck pain that was preventing me from basic daily tasks. I couldn’t run, sleep, or even hold my children. In the past taking OTC pain killers helped me, but this time it was too severe. After the first 2 weeks of care I started to feel normal again and my mental clarity improved greatly. My stress hasn’t completely gone away, but my body is handling it better than ever! I have also noticed my sinuses are very clear. The entire team at Hanson makes an effort to get to know you and truly want to help me feel my best!


Part of the HFC family

Photo of R.B.When 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 care!

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!

The Entire Team is WONDERFUL.

Photo of Akshi S.“I started care because I’ve had back pain since starting my career as a dentist 5 years ago. I used to get massages every month in order to help, and usually by week 3, I knew I needed another massage soon. It was affecting my work because after a dental procedure I would be sore for the rest of the day. My back and neck were constantly in a state of pain.

Since starting my care, I am no longer in pain. I didn’t think I’d ever be able to say that!!! I have not had a massage in 3 months, and I am not needing it to preserve my back and neck anymore. I am able to work and not be sore, even with difficult procedures.

The entire team is WONDERFUL. They make you feel like old friends. They are always so accommodating when it comes to scheduling. My husband recently pulled his back and they were able to get him in for a scan that same day, and in for an adjustment within a few days. My husband has also told me that since starting adjustments (he’s only had a few so far) he’s already feeling so much better”.

Always Available to Answer Questions

Photo of J.F.After I had my kids, my hips really started bothering me. I was having trouble sleeping with my hip pain. Then within the past year my upper back has been very tense causing me to be uncomfortable throughout the day and also I was getting more headaches. I have tried stretching at home, yoga, exercise, etc. All of these helped but didn’t “fix” the problem. I tried chiropractic care one other time, but just could not commit to the time.

When I decided to come to HFC I committed to myself that I would follow through. I have noticed much less pain in my upper shoulder/back area. I have also noticed improved posture. My hips are still adjusting due to being so bad beforehand, but I can feel a difference after each adjustment. I have also been doing stretches that were recommended to me by Dr. Hopper. I have never met a staff as friendly as the staff at HFC. They are welcoming, kind, and always available to answer questions.

Sleeping Much Better

Patient and doctorI wanted to give chiropractic care another try to see if it would help my chronic neck pain. I have had this pain for over thirty years. After a car accident, I lost my voice and my neck was in constant pain which prevented me from exercising. I also used to have bad headaches and I was not able to sleep well. Overtime my sleep became worse until I was diagnosed with sleep apnea about two years ago. I have tried physicians, chiropractic care and bowen therapy (massage.) Everything seemed to help at first, but then the pain kept returning. My pain was mostly in my neck but also in my shoulder blades and back. At its worst, it felt like a burning pain. My pain all over has improved, especially in my neck and I am sleeping much better. The entire team is awesome. Everyone is friendly and kind. The moment I walk into the office I feel welcomed and comfortable. Dr. Dave explains everything in detail for me to understand my progress, I can see his passion for what he does.”
