Hi, I’m Dr. Josh Hanson, DACM.
My goal is to help you have a better life. Everyday people come in to my clinic who have tried everything their regular doctors have recommended and are still hurting, stuck and feel like they are out of time. It’s common for me to see patients who have traveled the country from specialist to specialist and haven’t gotten a real solution to their problem.
I take a big picture, more functional approach that seeks to understand and treat the root cause of your problem(s).
I am relentless when it comes to discovering new, novel and useful approaches to helping you get out of pain or achieve your goals of pregnancy.

I hurt my back lifting weights in my early 20’s and got to experience first hand how poorly pain is treated in the regular medical system. I bounced between orthopedic docs who prescribed muscle relaxers, pain pills, cortisone injections, ablations, and even suggested surgery. I spent months in physical therapy that felt like a complete waste of time.
Ultimately I stumbled upon acupuncture and prolotherapy injections and they were nothing short of life saving. They were the only things that reduced my pain and gave me my life back. It all clicked and made complete sense that this was my calling.
So I went to acupuncture & integrative medicine school, which is pretty amazing! My education was heavily focused on treating the body as a complex system and not just a collection of individual parts. I attribute this systems thinking approach as my secret weapon. And here I am 10+ years later providing amazing solutions for complex health conditions.
So if you’re struggling with a pain condition, the good news is that there is a different approach to what you’ve been stuck dealing with. I’m here to help you get back to living the life you’re supposed to be living!
