Chiropractic Care Has Improved My Quality Of Life

cassieThe difficulties started a few years ago. It’s been a struggle off and on for about 3 years. A bunch of stress and not exercising every day. At its worst my back hurt a lot. For me it was hard to go out and do things I enjoyed. I’ve seen a lot of doctors, but coming to the chiropractor has changed everything (I had food allergies & really bad anxiety attacks). Chiropractic care has improved my quality of life a lot- I can go and enjoy the things I love. I am now able to compete in horse shows with my best friend. I still kind of struggle with anxiety attacks, but they are not as bad as they were before I started Chiro care. As soon as I started Chiro care- my anxiety attacks aren’t as severe! The team is always welcome, kind, & caring. Dr. Dave is super funny, kind, & caring. The team & Dr. Dave are all amazing and understanding.



Friendly and Cheerful!

She started seeing Dr. Dave mainly because of severe stomach pain and digestion issues. She had been dealing with daily pain for 2 years. At times she was in tears because of the pain and sometimes it would hit her so suddenly she couldn’t walk. A little while before coming to see Dr. Dave, she found out she was severely lactose-intolerant. Despite going dairy-free, her stomach didn’t start feeling better until she started chiropractic care.

She no longer is on daily Miralax and probiotics that she had been on for well over a year. She had about every medical test imaginable and even saw a pediatric gastroenterologist for a year and a half. She ‘danced through the pain’ as a dancer, but these issues made her feel so icky and uncomfortable. She was anxious many days and prior to several big events, like dance competitions, wondering if her stomach would hurt at the most inopportune times.

As her mom, I have cried tears of joy knowing she is no longer having daily pain. I no longer have to focus so much of our communication on if her stomach hurts and what to do if it does. That is HUGE! She rarely has stomach pain or even gives these past painful experiences a second thought.

She is free to do all the dancing and move through a typical life free of pain. Her quality of life is way better and other issues have improved as well, such as ENT problems. As a result of chiropractic care, her flexibility has improved in dance. When she is at dance for about 14 hours a week, we don’t have to wonder if her stomach will hurt and if she will need to sit out.

We love how friendly and welcoming Dr. Dave and his staff are. They are always smiling when we walk in the door. Even when we are rushing around and sometimes late, they are always cheerful and happy to see us. Dr. Dave was very confident that he could help her feel better at our initial appointment and I’m so glad he did!

Misaligned Neck

The difficulties began when I returned to working at a desk. Desk work forces strain on your neck and sitting wreaks havoc on your hips. A misaligned neck gave me chronic ear infections because they could not drain properly. Spine health is really the center of overall health. My circulation has improved and I no longer feel cold in normal temperatures. An aligned spine actually allows me to sit up straight and have a better posture. My ear infections, neck pain, and headaches have now gone away. I am always comfortable and taken care of while I am here. This treatment and experience have improved my overall quality of life.

Very Skilled

Pain for me started while I was playing football. I injured my sciatic nerve and couldn’t walk or sit down without pain which meant I wasn’t able to do what I love which is playing football. After a few weeks I was able to move around without pain, and then a few weeks later I was able to play football again. I’ve been a lot more comfortable doing any normal daily tasks and I am able to lift with no pain. Whenever I get adjusted I feel relieved of any built up stress in my body. When I first got here the staff was very welcoming and explained everything very clearly. They always check up on you to make sure everything’s okay and make sure you’re okay with anything they’re doing. The doctor is very skilled and seems to know what he’s doing a lot better compared to other chiropractors I’ve visited.

Always So Welcoming and Kind

I had slight scoliosis and I would have painful neck cramps. It affected my volleyball performance, and my posture negatively. At its worst, it would be very uncomfortable and painful. I feel much better since my chiropractic care in many ways – my back has felt much better, adjustments have helped me in sports, my posture feels comfortable, and my sleep schedule is much better. Dr. Hanson and the team have been very helpful and always so welcoming and kind. I feel so comfortable and grateful to have this amazing team and Dr. Hanson helping me.

I’ve Been Able to Focus on Running Again

teen patient photoI started Chiropractic care about a month ago due to my left hip. It began last spring and the pain has been on and off being at its worst when I would be running and then carry on through the rest of the night and the next morning. This effected my cross country season and workouts which caused me to be very stressed.

By going to the chiropractor my hip pain has slowly started to go away and has been completely gone now for about the last three weeks. With my hip pain gone I have now been able to focus on running again and completed my first half marathon last week which would have not been possible without Hanson Family Chiropractic!

Hanson Family Chiropractic is very warm and welcoming from the second you walk in until the second you leave. Dr. Dave Hanson is always friendly and eager to help me in my recovery journey and the rest of the team just as much!

Cured Most Of My Headaches & Relieved Stress!

I started because I had lower back pain that affected my sports. At its worst, it was hard to bend over even to pick up something I dropped on the floor. I went to the doctor, but they were not sure how to help. They told me that it could be a chiropractic issue, so that is why we came here. I have been able to go to gymnastics practice with full strength. It has cured most of my headaches and relieved stress! When I first walked into the door, the staff were so welcoming. They think of their patients first. Dr. Dave is really funny! The place itself was cozy too.

Chiropractic Care has Improved my Happiness

I started chiropractic care because of my anxiety and panic attacks. My anxiety started when I was 10yrs old. My panic attacks started last summer 2020, I was 11yrs old. I started seeing a therapist in the summer. I felt worried all the time about every little thing. With the panic attacks, I felt like I couldn’t breathe, and sometimes I felt like I was going to die. I didn’t even want to go to school. This condition affected my social life because all I wanted to do was stay home. I felt sad and scared every day. I haven’t had any panic attacks since I started seeing Dr. Dave. I sometimes get anxiety, but not as often!!! Chiropractic care has improved my happiness and I’ve enjoyed being social again. I think the whole team is wonderful. They are always so nice and they care about me. I wish they were my family”



I Would Not Want To Go Anywhere Else

July 28th I started receiving chiropractic care, I came with very bad lower back pain which made it hard to sleep and it hurt really bad to even get out of bed. In the past I tried heating pads and cracking my back (all methods made it worse). My lower back has zero pain, and I mean ZERO. My sleep has improved so much. Also, my neck is way less stiff, it’s amazing!! I absolutely love this team, it’s so welcoming and feels like home. I would not want to go anywhere else for care. Thank you for everything!

Dr. Dave’s Office Has Been Great!

I started chiropractic care when I was 7. I was having trouble sleeping and my muscles didn’t want to slow down, so after some research, my mom brought me to Dr. Dave. In addition, I was struggling with getting sick a lot. My immune system is so much stronger, so as a result, I am sick much less! I also sleep better and overall am much more relaxed. I think the team at Dr. Dave’s office has been great. They are very friendly, and I feel better after getting adjusted.

My Favorite Thing To Do Each Week!

I was having a lot of pain in my neck and mid-back, and being a golfer I was struggling with following through on my swing. I also have some anxiety and my mom thought the pain was worse from all the stress happening since school had closed down. I had tried using Motrin and ice, but nothing was helping.

Since starting chiropractic I am shooting low 80s due to the movement I have in my swing!!! I also sleep better and I am less anxious after seeing Dr. Dave.

This is my favorite thing to do each week! The team truly cares about me and who I am. Dr. Hanson has helped me feel so much better and always spends the time getting to know me and making sure I am feeling good.

This Team is Amazing

I started chiropractic care for help with my twisted vertebrae. This issue began years ago with no exact cause. I also had double jaw joint replacement surgery, which made my neck issue a more severe problem. I have tried chiropractic care before, and well as medications and braces. My headaches have significantly gone down, and I feel much more comfortable in everyday life. Pain and pressure in my back have continued to go down, and my surgery recovery is being benefited. This team provides the best quality of care. They make sure that they do everything in their power to make you comfortable. Especially, calling to check on you if you called off sick. This team is amazing at what they do, and they make you feel like family.

Treat you like Family!

“After playing sports throughout all of high school, I had noticed that my walking was off and that I was limping. At times it would be very uncomfortable. Since starting chiropractic my walking has been completely corrected, I feel way less restriction around my entire body, and I sleep way better than before. The team here is incredibly nice, they are very welcoming, and really show they care about their patients. They treat you just like family!”

Huge Weight Off My Shoulders

Doctor and Mira in exam roomMy back had been hurting from cosmetology school. It began hurting really bad back in November. My anxiety also caused a lot of pain. My stomach would feel so upset that I was constantly hunched over. My anxiety has affected me my whole life. I wanted to be home all the time, but now I am almost never home! I have tried multiple different therapists and medications. The therapists made everything worse. However, the last medication I found has helped me so much mentally. And coming here makes everything 10X better!

I can come home at the end of every day feeling good and energized without my back and neck being in excruciating pain. It helps me sleep better at night without being so anxious, and I just feel a huge weight off my shoulders overall.

Everyone here is so kind and welcoming! I haven’t been coming for long, but I already feel like a part of the tribe. They are so trustworthy and I feel like I can tell them anything.

No More Sharp Back Pains

“I started chiropractic care because I had intense, sharp pains on my upper back. I tried physical therapy first which just made it feel worse. I only started feeling relief once I started getting adjusted.

I have no more sharp back pains and I feel like I have more mobility in general. Everybody is very friendly. Dr. Hanson & Dr. Hopper have been extremely helpful. ”

The Entire Staff is Super Nice!

“I started going to the chiropractor because my back was hurting. It started hurting over a year ago because of gymnastics. I did physical therapy and was out of gymnastics for 2 months. Since starting chiropractic my back has been feeling a lot better! I have better balance on the balance beam and certain skills that used to hurt my back don’t hurt anymore! The entire staff is super nice!”
