Join Our Back To School Event

Back-to-School-Neurostorm-imageFor every family, Back to School season can be a tough time. We go from the laid back, easy-going schedule of summer, to waking up early, packing bags and lunches, making sure homework is done, and off to the routine of school.

Except this year has been anything but routine, and the upcoming Back to School season is especially full of stress, anxiety, and unanswered questions for us all.

If you’ve got a kiddo with Sensory Challenges, Focus and Learning Challenges, or Social, Emotional, and Behavioral Challenges… then this fall has you beyond worried about how your child is going to handle the vastly different routines, the masks, the mandates, and more. We want to help.

We’ve put together this virtual workshop to answer your questions, calm your fears and help you draw up a game plan for the upcoming school year! This is information and support your family needs now more than ever, and we won’t let the mandates keep us from getting you this life-changing information and HELP!

The NeuroStorm

While we can’t take all of your worries away, we can help in a BIG way. We’ve scheduled our first ever Live Virtual Back to School event, focusing on the “NeuroStorm” that is, unfortunately, a massive problem this school year! When child is facing daily challenges associated with SPD, ADHD, chronic illness, or even anxiety, we call it a NeuroStorm. Dr. Dave has a heart for helping these children. There’s a storm brewing in their growing bodies on a neurological level. Our job is to help you weather that storm. If you’re desperately looking for HELP, HOPE and ANSWERS please take an hour to watch our event. It’s simple. It’s free. It’s going to be eye opening. This is information you haven’t heard before, and it could really help your child!

Dr. Dave will spend the first 45-60 minutes going through the Neurostorm presentation that has changed many lives throughout the years. Then, stick around for a Virtual Q & A Session.

Save the Date!!!

We’ll go Live on Zoom with you August 25th at 8pm to connect with you heart-to-heart and help answer your questions, calm your fears, and help your family build out successful action steps and strategies for your child to best navigate school this fall and stay healthy, happy, and on track!

Patient Testimonials

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 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. Read some of our Neurostorm success stories below and even MORE on our Big Kids & Teens page!

Over the years, parents have witnessed…

  • More calm, relaxed child
  • Better focus and organization
  • Improved sleep and energy regulation
  • Less meltdowns and fewer tantrums
  • Stronger immune and gut health

Our son is happier, more relaxed, calmer, and with a significantly improved attention span

Photo of boy“Our son started chiropractic care because he was struggling with sensory and attention issues that were causing a lot of problems with learning, at school, socially, and especially with risk-taking and self-control. We had him in numerous therapies including OT, speech, Feldenkrais, sensory pool class and more, but although he made some progress, the risk-taking continued to be serious enough for both his neurologist and neuropsychologist to strongly recommend medication. We really didn’t want to put him on medication. Although we didn’t believe in chiropractors before Dr. Dave, we were willing to try almost anything to avoid medication. Our son has improved dramatically over the past several months! He is happier, more relaxed, calmer, and with a significantly improved attention span. In a meeting, the school stated that they don’t even think he has ADHD. He was in a self-contained special education class of 7 children with 5 teachers and aides, and now is in a mainstream class with 22 children and 2 teachers. He is a joy to be with and is forming close friendships. His academic work is now at or ahead of grade level because he’s calm enough to learn. Our family can now enjoy outings together without worry, and the trajectory of his life has changed because he’s in control of himself. My sons love coming to Dr. Dave’s office. He and his staff are so much fun and they make the environment welcoming for children. My kids love the play area. We’re grateful to Dr. Dave for helping our son, and for helping our whole family!”

Sensory Processing Disorder

Drew and Dr. Dave“I noticed Drew wasn’t developing typically when he was 2 years old. The tantrums were epic, he wasn’t trying to speak or communicate with pointing, his energy was boundless, he was very particular about what he ate (only rotini shaped pasta…no other shape will do!), and life was utterly challenging. He was never a ‘go-with-the flow’ kiddo, so we stuck to his schedule, kept our heads down and carried on. On the outside I tried to keep it together for family and friends, but inside I was a wreck. I didn’t understand what was happening to my baby and all I wanted to do was help him. His highs were beautiful but his lows were the worst. So after many discussions, evaluations, and sleepless nights- the conclusion was that our precious boy had Sensory Processing Disorder and was on the Autism spectrum. Or what I like to think of now as: a starting point. So our little family dove in. I immediately reduced my hours at work to focus on his road to recovery. We knew it was going to be a long road, but we were ready to get started. With an IEP in hand, Drew started school, private speech, counseling services, and weekly OT. With the services we were receiving, we were given great advice on how to handle Drew’s behaviors…but nothing was getting to the root of the behavior. Drew BIn October/November 2015, Drew was having a really hard time at school/daycare. Such a hard time that his Special Education teacher took a trip to his daycare to observe him with the school psychologist. There we found out that he wasn’t participating in school activities with the other children. That he was getting physical with some of the other students and that during circle time he was sitting by himself eating apples instead of interacting with the class. Mind you, he was perfectly happy eating the apples…but that wasn’t the point! Frustrated I remember yelling…”How do we get him to the table?!” I was losing hope.

During this time we made an OT switch and met Miss Brooke at My Recess Inc. She recommended we visit Dr. Dave and his team at Hanson Family Chiropractic. Before our first appointment I watched Dr. Dave’s YouTube video ‘The Perfect Storm’ and found myself in tears. This was the first scientific explanation I received of what was happening to my kiddo and it made logical sense. We were all in. Drew had his first adjustment the day before Christmas Eve, probably the best Christmas present we got! Not long after Drew started getting adjustments we saw a change at home, and more importantly to us, at school. He was able to focus and feel comfortable in his skin. He started interacting with other children and wanting to play with them. He could finally SIT AT THE TABLE with his peers! He was participating in circle time, making strides at speech, rocking it at OT…to be honest, WE were surprised by all of his progress! I am forever thankful to Dr. Dave and his staff for welcoming us to their Chiropractic family and restoring our hope. Drew’s future continues to brighten day by day, and I feel so incredibly blessed to have Dr. Dave on our ‘Dream Team’! He is kind, patient, and compassionate and only wants the best life for your family. Thank you Hanson Family Chiropractic for all that you do! PS- I coincidentally received the following photos as I was writing this today! This would have never happened 6 months ago! Go Drew Go!”

Makes Me Feel Like I Am Not Alone

Andrew photo“I decided to seek chiropractic care for Andrew to find less invasive ways to treats Andrew’s conditions. Andrew was diagnosed with ADHD and sensory integration disorder in February 2016. At the time, we decided on medication but found early on we needed to seek help with more treatment options. Right now we have Andrew under chiropractic care and occupational therapy and have been very happy with the progress Andrew has made. The small successes keep me fighting for Andrew’s well-being. It’s challenging to make peace with the fact that your son struggles, but what keeps me fighting is the simple but important changes. For instance, Andrew just recently had two consecutive days of a good report from school. He has also started to really enjoy basketball and can play for more than 15 minutes. Just two months ago, he wouldn’t have had the attention span for it. Dr. Dave has been patient and listened to me, making me feel like I’m not alone. There are good days and bad days with Andrew, which makes me also experience highs and lows with him. I walk into the practice and instantly feel like the the entire team is there for us. The positivity is undeniable!”

Seeking help with Speech Delays and Sensory Processing Disorder

Photo of Cole“We sought out Chiro care for our 4 yo son Cole after we learned it could be helpful with speech delays and sensory processing disorder. Cole was born prematurely and so had always seemed to struggle with low core strength and fine motor deficiencies, in addition to, a significant speech delay and also sensitivities to sensory information. We enrolled him in the Early Childhood Program at AGS once he turned 3 and there he receives speech, OT and PT which has helped immensely, but he still appeared to be struggling quite a bit so we were looking for something more. We have noticed a dramatic difference in Cole since beginning Chiro care just 2 months ago. He’s able to process sensory information without becoming overwhelmed. Previously he’d had a difficult time in highly stimulating environments, he’d become clingy and would have meltdowns. Now he’s much less emotional, even when we know he’s tired. He’d formerly used a pacifier to self regulate and last week he opted to throw it out all by himself! His core strength has improved as well. He now self corrects his ‘W’ sit and sat criss crossed for the first time ever! His independence with daily living skills has taken off as well, where before he had struggled even to just remove his shoes.

His speech intelligibility and the amount of words he is saying have also improved significantly. It’s like suddenly everything in his body has ‘clicked’ and each system is communicating effectively throughout. He’s talking up a storm. For the first time EVER yesterday, I asked him to please stop talking for a minute : ) I never thought the day would come when I’d have to say that to him as just a year ago he was only talking at a 15 month old level. Above all else, he’s sleeping great. Cole had only slept through the night maybe 20 times since birth (remember he’s 4!) and for the past 3 weeks he’s slept a solid 11-12 hours without so much as a peep. Cole loves going to see Dr. Dave and his staff to get “squished” as we call it. He feels completely comfortable with the routine and actually enjoys his appointments. Dr. Dave and his staff do an amazing job connecting with each of their patients and truly care about your child’s well being. It’s wonderful to see a healthcare facility show such passion for their work, as they know the dramatic difference it can make in the life of a child! We are truly grateful for all they have done for Cole and our family!” -H.K.
