Baby & Toddler Success Stories


What Our Patients and Their Families Say

We are PROUD of our patients and the progress they make while under our care. There’s nothing we enjoy more than CELEBRATING our patients’ successes along with them. And when there’s something good happening in our lives, we feel inclined to share it with others, right?

Using personal stories to share the power of chiropractic with others is one of the most valuable tools our practice can use to encourage others to give chiropractic care a try – a decision that can be life-changing! We love sharing pictures and stories of our patients in the interest of showing others that real people are getting great results here at Hanson Family Chiropractic.

Sleeping Better Spitting Up Far Less

We started chiropractic care for Bentley because he had bad acid reflux. The difficulties began not long after he was born. He was grunting and waking up very frequently at night. He would also spit up a large majority of his meals. We tried baby pepcid, but did not want to resort to medication just yet. Since being under Dr. Dave’s care, Bentley is now sleeping better and spitting up far less. We are all getting more sleep as Bentley does not wake up grunting anymore! On top of that, the HFC care team has been so kind and welcoming. I highly recommend the team and specifically Dr. Dave, especially for your little ones. I would like to tell others that chiropractic care for babies is so gentle and very effective!



Torticollis, Irregular Bowel Movements

Millie had started care with concerns torticollis, irregular bowel movements causing discomfort, and problems with reflux. Since coming to Dr Dave, Millie has less spit ups, constipation is a thing of the past, and more motion and control in her neck – which has resulted in Millie enjoying tummy time! As an extra bonus, Millies sleep has been 10X better than before and she is able to handle sickness a lot easier!

Care Is Catered To What You Need

AL Success storyMy Daughter Austin was about 4 weeks when I noticed she preferred looking to one side over the other. After some research I learned this was not normal and I knew since she had had a traumatic birth (3 days of labor & drugs), I decided to look into chiropractic care for infants. We started coming to see Dr. Dave about 8 weeks and noticed a significant improvement in her neck mobility, eating habits, and sleep. She is 3 months now and is continuing to improve- she is a much happier baby! Austin is able to move her head from left to right whereas before she was looking left and I had to move her head to look right and she would fight it. She also has less reflux when eating, she’s much more tolerable of tummy time now that her neck mobility has improved and is generally a chill, happy baby. I love the care we have received. Natasha and Megan are always so helpful and welcoming and we love coming to see them. Dr. Dave listens and addresses any questions I have and cares about the well being of my kid and I very much appreciate that. I would highly recommend Hanson Family Chiropractic for you family’s musculoskeletal needs, from youngest to oldest, the care is catered to what you need. Once I go back to work I will probably start getting adjustments for myself too.


Only took a Couple of Sessions to See Improvement

patient A.S. and babyWe initially looked into chiropractic care because Clark was only pooping once weekly and it was visibly uncomfortable for him. It seemed to start when he was given supplements during his NICU stay. Clark poops regularly with no distress! It only took a couple of sessions to see improvement. We are so happy to see that he additionally has had greatly improved sleep. In general, he is much more relaxed, which is wonderful, especially considering his stressful start to life with a very premature delivery and long NICU stay. His pediatrician has been so impressed with how he has grown and met developmental milestones and avoided any illness thus far. We are confident that the care from Hanson Family Chiropractic plays a significant role in this! From the moment I called to make Clark’s first appointment, I knew Hanson Family Chiropractic was a wonderful place to be. The office is so beautiful and the whole team is so friendly and welcoming. Natasha, Megan and Bethany always make you feel right at home. Dr. Dave is so kind and knowledgeable and so great with Clark! You can tell that everyone is happy and passionate about what they do.


They are AWESOME!

laliAtztlali had a spiral fracture in one leg and then a buckle fracture in the other leg. This caused her to not be able to walk properly and she was always limping and in pain. She was not a normal 3-year-old child after her legs being fractured. Atztlali was not able to run or play with her brothers or kids for too long. We consulted with her physician and she did therapy after her fractures. We were told that she would grow out of it, but we knew something was wrong. Fortunately, with our visit to Taylor (Dad’s chiropractor), he was able to give us the recommendation to Hanson Family Chiropractic which changed our little one’s life around. Atztlali is much more happier she can run, walk, and jump without complaining of pain. Limping is gone. She is a very active child. They are AWESOME! Dr. Dave Hanson and the girls do a great job explaining everything. They are very kind they always greet everyone with a very warm welcome. It is very family-oriented. I can’t thank them enough for everything they do.

They are a great team they make you feel like family.


Colic and Reflux Are Gone

baby-testimonials-stMy Daughter started seeing Dr. Dave Hanson at 2 months old. I was desperate for help and would try anything to give my daughter Callie some relief. The poor thing had Colic and Reflux. She was always miserable and feedings felt impossible because she had so much discomfort from her acid reflux. When I got a call back from Natasha she was so sweet and got me in right away. After the first adjustment, I saw an improvement that night. She would cry from 5:00 pm -8:00 pm and those evening hours would be so hard. To my surprise, she cried much less and it was such a relief. Being first-time parents with a colicky baby was so stressful and I am so thankful for the Hanson Family Team. My daughter stopped crying during her feedings and they became more enjoyable. I also was able to sleep my baby flat in a bassinet. For 3 months she could only sleep in her bouncer due to her reflux. Callie just hit 4.5 months old and her colic and reflux are gone. We love Dr. Hanson and his team and will continue to get her adjusted.


Chiropractic Care Has Solved The Problem!

e-b-success-storyI started my infant on chiropractic care because she was nursing differently on the left side than on the right side. I was having pain nursing her, and I’d heard that when there’s a difference between the sides, often chiropractic care can help. She was also often nursing with her shoulders raised up towards her ears. We had already gotten her tongue tie and lip tie released and were also in feeding therapy. I’m happy to report that chiropractic care has solved the problem! I no longer have pain while nursing,and no discrepancies between sides. Her shoulders are also much more relaxed when nursing. Dr. Dave was great- very sensitive to my concerns, and very gentle with and responsive to my baby. The front desk staff was always welcoming and friendly. The office is impeccably clean, bright, and stylishly decorated.


Couldn’t Be Happier

Celebration photo with Adam and his momWhen my son started walking at the age of one and a half, I noticed that he was off balance. I also noticed that he hardly used his right arm for anything, and he had a minimal range of motion with that arm. As he got older (currently two and a half), nothing seemed to change for him. In fact, it appeared to be getting worse. I also noticed that my his tonsils were on the larger side and that he snored at night.

After being referred to Dr. Hanson, I couldn’t be happier with the changes that I am seeing in my son. He has been getting his adjustments for the past month, and I am already celebrating the small things! He gradually stopped snoring at night. That was the first change that I was encouraged by. My son’s confidence is rising as he tries to use his right arm more often. He’ll look at me as he rotates his right arm and participates in little exercises that we do together and he’ll say, “Look mom! The doctor fixed me!” His smile is everything to me. I look forward to more improvements with my baby boy.

I was extremely nervous about traveling far (from Chicago) for a chiropractic visit. My nerves were calmed immediately as soon as I stepped foot into the office. The staff is amazing. They are super friendly and encouraging, and they are always willing to work with my schedule. They are very genuine, and they always have a smile on their face. Dr. Hanson is very knowledgeable with what he does, and he ensures that all of my questions are answered. I love that he is very thorough when explaining the progress that my son is showing. My baby is super shy, and Dr. Hanson is so calm and good with him. My son is finally starting to open up, and he even gives high fives to Dr. Hanson after his sessions. All of this and more is what keeps me motivated to make the drive to the office. Dr. Hanson and his team are simply the best!


Friendly and Helpful

Andres' photoWe started chiropractic care due to my son’s behavioral issues that were beginning to worsen along with his premature history. Andres was born at 30 weeks. The behavioral issues/high energy level started at the age of 4 and was beginning to effect school.

Chiropractic care has helped Andres so far with behavioral improvement and what I think is the brain filtering through information more effectively.

The team is amazing! Always such friendly and helpful ladies at the front desk. Whenever I need to switch appointment times, they are always willing to accommodate us. Dr. Hopper and Dr. Hanson are very knowledgeable and so good with the kids!

Amazing with Kids

Toddler playing with a shopping basketAnahi started her chiropractic journey due to always getting sick. I got tired of the monthly doctor visits, giving her antibiotics constantly to turn around and have her catch something else. It seemed like a never ending cycle and it seemed like we were headed down a similar path as her older brother. Our pediatrician recommended we see a chiropractor and after some research we decided to go with Hanson Family Chiropractic!

We are proud to say she no longer gets sick as often and have not had to see the doctor due to illness! If she occasionally gets the common cold/cough it doesn’t last nearly as long!

Dr. Hanson and Dr. Hopper are amazing with kids. They are always willing to give a little extra time with questions I may have about the kids progress or even something going on with myself. The next step is this Momma! Thanks to the ladies up front for always treating us like family!

Warm and Welcoming

Lily's photoLily has been seeing the Dr. Daves since she was only a few weeks old. She is our third and EASIEST child. She has been sleeping through the night since she was a month old and has the most delightful disposition. We didn’t battle colic, reflux, or digestive issues and I truly believe regular chiropractic care is to thank for keeping everything working properly!

We love coming to see our friends at Hanson Family Chiropractic each week. I say friends for a reason- that’s exactly what they are. Everyone on the team is warm and welcoming and always happy to see us. I can’t thank them enough for giving Lily the best possible start in life.

A Game Changer!

Emrie photoEmrie started getting adjusted by both Dr. Daves when she was just a few weeks old! After seeing such success getting our 2 year old daughter adjusted as a baby, we knew this was one of the first stops we’d make if we had another baby! From birth, Emrie seemed restless and had a difficult time falling asleep/staying asleep for any length of time. She also had a difficult time pooping and would wake herself quite often each night grunting and straining to poop. Her body was tense & she definitely had her foot on the “gas pedal” so we knew being adjusted by Dr. Dave was just what she needed!

Emrie is a different baby since we started her with chiropractic care. She’s happy, relaxed, sleeping 6+ hours at night and pooping regularly with little effort!

We love Hanson Family Chiropractic! Both of the doctors are extremely gifted at their craft- they know their stuff! The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable and the ladies up front are all so friendly! Everyone goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome! The first time Emrie was adjusted by Dr. Hanson, she pooped mid adjustment. In that moment I was so thankful because I was reminded just how important chiropractic care is! We are so so thankful for the knowledge and individualized care that we received for each of our girls! Definitely a game-changer!
