Dr. Hanson is excited to be serving the Batavia community.  Nowhere else has felt quite like home to him. Dr. Hanson was born in Batavia, IL. He attended J.B. Nelson Elementary School and Montessori Academy of Batavia.  After a few years spent out of the state, his family moved back to the area.  He attended Aurora Christian High School where he met his high school sweetheart and future wife, Kristen. They were married in August of 2004. The Hansons have remained in the Batavia area for many reasons.  First of all, they love the friendly, hard-working, family-focused people.  Second, there is so much to do! Dr. Hanson and his wife love to bike on the trails, walk along the river, visit the Batavia Public Library, swim at Quarry Beach, pick up fresh fruit at the Batavia Farmers’ Market, and enjoy music at the Batavia Riverwalk Pavilion. Not to mention, there are so many great places to shop and eat in the surrounding area.

A Chiropractic Education

doc-pic-023Many people are surprised to learn that Dr. Hanson did not start his career in chiropractic and never dreamed of becoming a doctor.  In fact, he earned a degree in Business and worked in the business world for five years. While he learned a lot and made a good living, he felt like he was meant to do something more meaningful with his life, but wasn’t sure what it was. With some encouragement from his personal chiropractor, Dr. Hanson decided to become a chiropractor himself. After many years of rigorous study, he received his Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) degree from National University of Health Sciences. Dr. Hanson is continuing his education and is currently pursuing even more certifications.

Why Pediatrics?

Dr. Dave was recently recognized as the Pediatric Chiropractor Community Leader of the Year.  He is also considered as one of the top Pediatric Chiropractors across the state of Illinois, and his workshops have helped moms all over the world find the answers to how to restore their children’s health.


Dr. Dave adjusted his son, Jack, within an hour of being born due to the stressors of the birthing process.

When a Thought Became a Passion

“Early on in school I went on a chiro mission trip, to Ometempe, Nicaragua. Health care in this part of the world is terribly inadequate. One morning, we had a mother travel 3 hours by bus to have someone evaluate her son. This baby was limp, twitching and so weak it couldn’t even cry. It was heartbreaking to see. Since I was the only chiropractor there with pediatric training, I was asked to adjust him. I noticed his atlas was out, which is like the “main breaker” of the nervous system. Almost immediately this child’s reflexes started coming back. He was able to nurse, which he wasn’t able to do before and come to find out months later he is still alive and thriving today! I knew I had found my calling. Issues like in-utero constraint, birth trauma, toxin exposure, etc, puts so much stress on these kids right from their first moments of life. For this reason, I adjusted my own son right after he was born. And since these issues are neurological in nature, the chiropractor is the only doctor who knows how to treat them. So that is when I decided that my practice needed to focus on children and expectant mothers.  Our practice is kid-friendly, kid-focused and mom-approved! Of course we see the ‘big kids’ too like moms, dads, grandmas and grandpas. We even see entire families for regular adjustments!”
