He has a successful history of reducing pain, inflammation, and improving overall function as quickly as possible so you can get back to enjoying life again. Dr. Hanson’s DC has developed a non-invasive, conservative approach to treating conditions such as:
Back Pain Due to:
- Pinched Nerves: Numbness, tingling, burning, weakness, and pain can all be symptoms of a pinched nerve
- Sciatica: Pain that radiates down the back of the entire leg or parts of the leg. The pain usually starts in the low back or buttock
- Degenerated Discs or Arthritis: These are discs that are worn down and arthritic. Sometimes this can cause a secondary issue such as a pinched nerve.
- Bulging, Herniated, Protruding Discs: These are all conditions that affect the discs in the spine.
- Stenosis: (AKA Narrowing of the spine). This condition causes pinched nerves in the lumbar spine, and possible spinal canal narrowing.
- Muscular Issues: Psoas, Quadratus Lumborum, Iliacus, Piriformis: All of these muscles can contribute to back pain if they are tight and/or over compensating.
- Failed Back Surgery: Back pain six months after low back surgery with or without screws, rods, a cage, or stimulator in their spine.
Neck Pain Due to:
- Pinched Nerves: Numbness, tingling, burning, weakness and pain are all symptoms of a pinched nerve
- Degenerated Discs or Arthritis: Arthritis can affect the bones and the discs in the neck (aka the cervical spine). When the discs are arthritic that means that they are worn down and flattened. They are not as hydrated as they once were. As a result this can also cause pinched nerves in the neck.
- Bulging, Herniated, Protruding Discs: These are conditions that affect the discs in the neck.
- Stenosis: This condition causes pinched nerves in the cervical spine. There is also a likelihood of the spinal canal narrowing.
- Muscular Issues: Levator Scapulae, Traps, Scalenes, SCM’s…all of these muscles can also contribute to neck pain.
- Failed Neck Surgery: Pain in the neck six months after having had neck surgery.
- Arthritis Knee Pain
- Bone on Bone Knee Pain
- Meniscus Tear Pain
- Tendonitis Knee Pain
- Bursitis Knee Pain
- Baker’s Cyst/Popliteal Cysts
- Post-Surgical Knee Pain: Pain after having arthroscopic knee surgery for a meniscus tear. Pain after a Total Knee Replacement due to scar tissue, inflammation of the synovium

What’s Involved in a Treatment?
Hand held lasers are applied to problem areas sending laser light that penetrates through tissue and bombards cells with beneficial photons. The photons interact with cells in such a way as to energize them and trigger a response that allows the tissue to heal faster; this also allows pain and inflammation to be relieved and/or eliminated. Most patients look forward to a treatment because it is painless and relaxing.
For patients with pinched nerves in the low back or neck, sciatica, bulging, herniated, degenerated, or protruding discs, or stenosis; Dr. Hanson, DC also combines laser therapy along with Spinal Decompression Therapy. In addition, physiotherapy may also be performed to strengthen the area.

Effectiveness of Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy has been proven to treat a wide range of conditions for over 35 years. There are more than 2,500 published studies documenting the efficacy of this treatment in addition to at least 120 randomized controlled studies. Many hospitals, rehab centers, clinics and individual therapists use cold laser treatments in various ways. Sports therapists in the NHL, NBA, PGA, NBL, and U.S. Olympic Teams use cold laser treatments to address athlete injuries.
Paul Sibert, M.D., Chief of Neurology at Jersey Shore University Medical Center, attests that laser treatments speed up cell repair and stimulate the immune, lymphatic and vascular systems. Further, the National Center for Biotechnology Information, a branch of the U.S. National Institutes of Health has made numerous papers available on the role and efficacy of laser therapy in dozens of chronic conditions.
In short, cold laser therapy has proven itself over and over to effectively treat numerous conditions. It has been shown to eliminate pain, repair nerve damage, treat muscle and joint mobility restriction, reduce inflammation, speed recovery and healing, assist cellular regeneration, reduce scar tissue, enhance lymphatic drainage, improve circulation, and increase endorphins.
An Affordable Non-Invasive Alternative to Surgery
Traditional surgery and pharmacy costs have become impossibly expensive for most Americans. A surgery to address a bulging disc condition can cost over $50,000, and most of the time back surgery’s fail.
By contrast, a complete, multi-visit schedule of treatments to address even chronic and debilitating health issues using Dr. Hanson’s Cold Laser Programs™ are just a fraction of the cost of surgery and parts of it are often reimbursed to patient’s by medical insurance.
The advantages both in terms of cost and effectiveness of cold laser treatments are indisputable. Additionally, unlike surgery and drugs, cold laser therapy has no adverse side effects.
