Dr. Kami Hansen is originally from New Lisbon, Wisconsin. She attended UW-La Crosse where she received her Bachelor’s of Science in Biology. Dr. Hansen graduated Summa Cum Lade in October 2008 from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. A highlight in Dr. Hansen’s education was traveling to Morocco, Africa on a Clinic Abroad Trip. The Palmer team provided chiropractic care to over 3,000 patients on their 10 day journey. This was the first time any students were allowed to adjust children in Africa making it a life changing experience. Before opening Heartland Family Chiropractic she spent one year interning and associating at Clinton Back and Neck in Clinton, Iowa. Dr. Hansen is married to her husband Paul, a Mechanical Engineer at KJWW Engineering Consultants and has three active boys Hunter, Riley and Dylan. In her spare time she enjoys scrapbooking, reading, and hiking.
Dr. Hansen has been under chiropractic care since she was a little girl. She suffered a whiplash injury that prevented her from being able to support her own head. She couldn’t walk or sit up for 3 days before she finally went to see a chiropractor. Her condition was so bad that she had to be carried into the clinic but after that first adjustment she was able to walk out of the clinic on her own. Her interest in a chiropractic career grew when she first started learning about the amazing human body and how the nervous system influences everything within the body.
Dr. Hansen uses a “whole person approach”. She truly cares about her patients as individuals and tries to gain a personal rapport with each patient. She realizes everyone is unique and treats patients based upon their specific condition as well as how their body best responds to care. Making sure patients understand the “why” of their care is important to her. Also, helping educate her patients on ways to stay in good health is an essential part of patient care at Heartland Family Chiropractic. Utilizing this “whole person” approach to wellness means looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time. Using this unique approach, Dr. Hansen is able to help you to accelerate and/or maintain your journey to good health.
Dr. Kami is actively involved in the community that she lives and works in. She currently holds a board position with the Chamber of Commerce of Cottage Grove and the Optimist Club of Cottage Grove. She feels strongly that being involved in community is important as a business owner and mother who lives in Cottage Grove. She has organized the Optimist Club's Easter Egg Hunt for the last 8 years as well as the Chamber of Commerce's Family Fun Night.
