Dr. Hansen is an experienced and committed chiropractic in the Elk Grove/Laguna Area.Dr. Hansen was born and raised in Elk Grove. In Fact, Dr. Hansen's grandparents raised 8 children here. There is a street named after Dr. Hansen's mothers' family, Eisenbeisz St.
While growing up Dr. Hansen developed a keen interest in staying healthy because both of his grandfathers died of strokes in their early 50's. Then his father in his early 30's developed rheumatoid arthritis, which caused his father a great amount of pain and deformity. His father was constantly being used as a guinea pig and was given many different kinds of drugs and experimental drugs. All of which had moderate to severe side effects. One of Dr. Hansen's uncles and two of his aunt's also developed rheumatoid arthritis
Also, while growing up Dr. Hansen's mom developed headaches and anxiety and had a lot of neck, shoulder and chest pain. The medical doctors told her that she needed trigger point injections. When the medical doctors gave the injection in a chest muscle, he put the needle in too deep and collapsed her lung. Dr. Hansen's mother spent two weeks in the hospital and almost died.
Needless to say Dr. Hansen was not very impressed with the medical profession, yet he knew he needed to learn what it took to be healthy and he figured there was no better way then to become a medical doctor. So Dr. Hansen attended San Joaquin Delta College and then Sacramento State University as a pre-med major. While attending Sacramento State Dr. Hansen sustained a severe low back injury and went to the campus medical doctor who gave him drugs and told him he had a strained muscle. Two weeks later Dr. Hansen was still crawling to the bathroom in the morning and if he sneezed or coughed he would end up on the floor in severe spasms. He returned to the medical doctor who sent him to a physical therapist who told him to put heat and ice on his back and stretch his muscles. Another two weeks went by and Dr. Hansen was not more than 5 to 10% improved since the original injury. That is when Dr. Hansen's father took him to see an old retired chiropractor that he knew. Dr. Hansen at that time had never even heard the word chiropractic and did not know what a chiropractor did. When Dr. Hansen received his fist chiropractic adjustment he got off the table and was immediately 70% improved. Dr. Hansen then stayed with his chiropractor for the summer and was completely healed.
Dr. Hansen then returned to Sacramento State University and took a few more courses in chemistry and physics and entered Life Chiropractic College West.
Four academic years later Dr. Hansen graduated from Chiropractic College as valedictorian of his class. Dr. Hansen has been practicing chiropractic since 1986 and now has one of the largest solo practices in California.
