Trigger points are painful knots found in the muscles that are formed when the muscle or fascia does not relax. We use a plant-based, non-toxic medicine called SARAPIN that is injected directly into the trigger point. The needle is thin and fine and the injection is virtually painless.
SARAPIN is a natural anti-inflammatory that produces instant pain relief and lasting results. Multiple trigger points can be injected on the same visit. We can treat many muscle groups including, those in the arms, legs, lower back and neck. Trigger point injection therapy is an effective treatment for headaches, fibromyalgia and muscle pain.

“I came here on advice of my husband Francisco. He went to the Atlas Medical Center for therapy on his knee. It helped him and he said to give them a chance to look at my back. I think it really helped me and I thank you for all you have done for me! I hope I will continue to feel better.”
~ Felicitas M.
“Before coming to Atlas Medical Center I had a strong pain in my low back and hips. Walking was an issue and I had pain when I rolled onto my side. I now am walking much better and can roll any which way. I am very pleased with my overall experience and am at least 80% improved and the staff is amazing!”
~ Sara M.
“My lower back and my feet were constantly burning. I had low back surgery years ago that failed and I had been taking Hydrocodone to ease the pain.
The PRP treatments relieved the pain in my lower back by 95%. I am walking better and I can stand without pain. I’m very pleased with my progress. I would definitely recommend Atlas Medical Center -ANYTIME.

“I had constant pain and weakness in my back and right thigh. I could not step up with my right leg. I was hard to get out of a chair- it was even worse if I sat for too long. I tried Physical therapy, yoga and daily exercise without much help. I can now walk without any pain and I can step up with my right leg. I am about 90% better and I am very pleased.”

“I Thought My Pain Relief Wouldn’t Last…18 Months Later I Still Have No Neck Pain.”
“The pain was in my neck radiating down my arm, upper back and shoulder blade. The pain became progressively worse over 2 ½ years and can only be described as excruciating.
I tried various medications with no success. I was sent to a neurosurgeon who determined I was not a candidate for surgery and pain management was next. I couldn’t drive or even ride in a car comfortably.
Cold Laser therapy and Decompression therapy gave me complete relief. About two-thirds of the way through the planned sessions, I woke one morning and the pain was gone. It has been 1 ½ years now without pain reoccurring. I have been able to go back to weight lifting and complete normal activities.”

“Willie Nelson’s Drummer is Pain-Free After Completing Dr. Hanson’s Low Back Program”
“I experienced unbearable pain in my lower back, and shooting pain from my back side, and down my right leg. It prevented me from many activities I normally enjoy while spending time with my grandsons.
I tried muscle relaxers, pain pills, and massage therapy. All of them were temporary relief at best.
I AM NOW PAIN FREE, and I can physically do anything I need to do. I am a drummer (with poor posture) and I’m still able to play 4 hours of music, WITH NO PAIN!
Dr. Hanson’s and his entire staff were friendly, courteous, and professional. I’ll miss them.”

“As a Medical Doctor, I Was Somewhat Skeptical….Now I Have My Life Back”
“I knew nothing about decompression until I read about it in the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I must admit, as a medical doctor, I was somewhat skeptical about decompression treatment, but I was in such pain I was desperate for something to work. When I read that it was an FDA approved procedure with an over 80% success rate, I knew I had to try it, because I couldn’t keep going on the way I had.
I had suffered for 3 months with the most excruciating pain that was unrelieved by physical therapy, steroids, or pain medication.
Now that I have finished the treatments…The benefit I value the most is “I have my life back!” I can work the long hours required of an obstetrician/gynecologist and deliver the 20-30 patients/month, perform surgery, and do clinic and take night call. I have not taken any pain medicine in over 6 wks. I will definitely be sending patients his way.”

“I Am Back to Enjoying Time with Friends, Family, and Pets and I No Longer Have Constant Neck Pain”
“I experienced constant burning and shooting pain throughout my neck and shoulder area. I had tingling and numbness down my left arm and hand making work difficult as I am left handed. Just walking my dogs was a painful chore. I did physical therapy twice a week for sixteen weeks. I was prescribed several rounds of steroids, muscle relaxers and pain pills.
After completing Dr. Hanson’s cold laser & decompression therapy…”my condition improved tremendously. I am no longer in constant pain, and actually have mobility back in my neck and shoulders. The burning and shooting pain in my neck has completely disappeared. I am back to enjoying time with friends, family, and pets.”

My MRI showed degenerative disc disease and bulging disc…. it was very painful to walk, every step was an effort – I was scared to go to work – Hip & leg pain were excruciating, I was depressed!
After completing my treatments my quality of life has improved 100%. I can walk without pain, work without pain and go shopping without pain. Thank you –Thank you –Thank you!!
I enjoyed my visits –I truly like Dr. Hanson – and I will tell anyone and everyone about my success!”

“It’s Wonderful Not to Have Neck Pain Anymore”
“I was unable to turn my head left or right. I had much pain in my neck. My pain was constant and nothing but harsh narcotics would relieve it. I have tried all types of medications, physical therapy, several visits to the doctors of orthopedics, pain management clinics and neurologists which followed up with several injections into my neck with either no or minimal relief.
Now that I [have] completed Dr. Hanson’s Program my neck pain is gone and I now have more movement in my neck. I can even turn my head to the left and right while driving. It’s wonderful! I used to feel like a menace on the road, not [but not] anymore.”

Irving, Medical Doctor Comments, “I Wonder How I Did Not Discover Dr. Robert Hanson Earlier. His Low Back Program is AMAZING.”
“For the last 5 years, I have been experiencing severe back pain extending to my leg. My pain was so incapacitating that I had to retire because my job required standing long hours in the operating room. I am a gynecologist.
I’ve seen 3 orthopedists with no results. At the end they say that only surgery could help. But there was no guarantee. I had to take pain killers with temporary relief.
AT LAST, I found Dr. Hanson’s Decompression Correction Program. Now I can swing at the golf ball. I can run. It is AMAZING. I wonder how I did not discover it earlier. I will not hesitate to recommend my friends to him.”

“It Has Been 4 Years Since Completing Dr. Hanson’s Neck Program, And I Feel GREAT! No Pain !”
“I was suffering with multiple herniated discs in my neck which caused pain and tingling and numbness in my right arm and hand. Doing normal things like, getting up in the morning, even sitting in front of a computer was a nightmare. After months of physical therapy, pain pills, and 3 steroid shots I was still in agony because the pain would not stop. Finally I was told I needed surgery, which was THE last thing I wanted to do.
I was looking for alternatives to surgery when I saw Dr. Hanson on TV talking about his Cold Laser / Spinal Decompression Therapy. Anything non surgical with no side effects was good enough for me to call his office.
With just a few weeks of treatments I was feeling relief, and 2 months later 90% of my neck pain was gone. Now it has been 4 years since completing Dr. Hanson’s Program, and I feel GREAT! No pain! I have my life back, and I feel I can accomplish anything. I would highly recommend Dr. Hanson’s office. They really take care of you and make sure you’re getting the results you need.”

“I’m Just Glad to Have My Normal Life Back, and My Low Back Feels Fantastic.”
“I definitely could not stand for long periods at all. Even leaning into the sink to brush my teeth was a chore without having to bend my knees and hold myself up with one hand.
After Cold Laser Therapy and decompression I feel fantastic! For the first time in my life I have days of no pain, instead of pain for days. I can now stand for long periods of time and I’m just glad to have my “normal” life back.
The staff here is wonderful and the positive energy and attitude is infectious. I definitely recommend Dr. Hanson’s Cold Laser – Spinal Decompression Program.”

“My Quality Of Life Is Better Due To This Treatment”
“Before starting Cold Laser – Spinal Decompression Therapy, the pain was almost constant. My neck area was stiff and painful. It was hard to turn my head from side to side. It was also hard to hold my hands above my head for a long time. It was hard to look both ways for traffic while driving. I have tried pain pills and heating pads, but it never gave me any long term relief.”
Now that I have had Dr. Hanson’s treatments I can move my head and neck more freely with less constant pain. I definitely have increased range of motion with less constant pain…I didn’t expect to be perfect, since I have had this problem for a while, but now my quality of life is better due to this treatment.”

“I couldn’t walk [for any length of time], the center of my back was almost always hurting. I had numbness in the inner left leg from ankle to thigh. I took pain pills almost all of the time…heat and ice packs too. I was a mess!
After doing Dr. Hanson’s therapy my back doesn’t hurt, the numbness is 90% gone. I can do my work and I can walk without my cane. It’s great!!
Dr. Hanson and his staff really are great! I want to thank them all for their help and friendship.”

“It Has Been Over 2 Years Since Doing Dr. Hanson’s Neck Program and I am still Pain Free”
“I had severe neck, shoulder, arm and back pain. My thumb and forefinger was 75% numb. I would have to get up in the night every 2-3 hours and try to walk the pain off and apply hot and cold packs in order to obtain some relief.
I never heard of Dr. Hanson’s therapy before and two days before I was to go in for [neck] surgery I saw an ad in the newspaper. So I decided to give it a try because I was trying to avoid surgery and injections.
The cold laser and decompression therapy saved me from having surgery. I am pain free and it has been over 2 years ago since doing the therapy. I have good movement in my neck, no pain, and can sleep all night. I highly recommend Dr. Hanson’s therapy. It is outstanding! I do recommend it every chance I get to friends and relatives.”

“Medication, Chiropractic, Physical Therapy, NOTHING WORKED…Until I Tried…”
“I tried physical therapy, a chiropractor, heat, aspirin, and Darvacet and NOTHING WORKED. I couldn’t do any house cleaning, laundry or even walk to the mail box. I had severe pain in my left hip (buttock) all the way down to my toes. The only relief came when I sat in a certain position totally still and that was only for a few minutes.
After Dr. Hanson’s therapy I can do everything now. I am better now that I was before the initial pain ever started because the therapy cured another pain I had just come to accept.
Dr. Hanson is a blessing for God. He is an answered prayer. I would definitely recommend treatments to anyone.”

“The Pain From A Large Herniated Disc in the Low Back Was Relieved With Dr. Hanson’s Treatments”
“I had a herniated disc in my lower back. I was in severe pain in my lower back and down through my left leg. It was constant and very sharp. Progressively the pain got worse—soon I couldn’t walk or sit in a chair. [I could] not work…only bed rest.
After 1 treatment, I felt relief, but soon after having roughly 20 treatments I felt much better. NO PAIN PILLS ANYMORE! I can now walk and even sit down in a chair again. I can drive my car again without pain and [I am] able to work and have a life.
From the moment I met Dr. Hanson and the entire staff, they have been amazing. I thank everyone who was involved and appreciate your courtesy.”

“I experienced pain in my left leg and hip. I also had pain in the small part of the lower back. An orthopedic surgeon was telling me I needed surgery and I did NOT want surgery.
I felt so much better after just a few treatments. After completing the treatments [I now have] NO [LOW BACK] PAIN and [my low back] even felt good during the treatments.
I looked forward to each day and will miss it. I can sleep at night without waking with pain. No Motrin is necessary now. No discomfort at night while just sitting on the sofa.

“Since Completing Dr. Hanson’s Treatments, The Pain In My Neck And Arm Have Gone Away”
“I was experiencing searing pain in my left arm whenever I twisted my arm, coupled with numbness in my left hand and loss in range of motion. I could hardly lift my arm without pain. Sleeping was a problem as I could not find a comfortable position.
My general physician gave me prescription pain killers, which provided minimal relief for a short time. I knew I wanted to try a non-surgical solution, so I tried Dr. Hanson’s Decompression Correction Program.
Since completing Dr. Hanson’s treatments, the pain in my neck and arm have gone away. My range of motion while still not 100%, has progressively improved by 85% to 90%. I’m happy that I tried Dr. Hanson’s correction program. This program has transformed my daily life from miserable to very comfortable.”

“My Low Back Hasn’t Felt This Good in 30 Years”
“I hurt my back when I was 15 yrs old, while unloading a feed truck. I’ve had problems off & on through out the years for no more then 4-5 days at a time. I had gotten to a point where I was hurting all the time and thought I might have to consider retirement before starting decompression.
My knowledge of decompression was a newspaper ad. I called, made an appointment with Dr. Hanson and started the therapy the next week. Everyone is very friendly, outgoing and “cares” about how we feel.
From the treatment stand point, after the 6th & 8th treatment, I’ve felt better than I have in 30 years. The treatments gave me my life back. I can look forward to the things I want to do, not what my back will allow me to do. I have recommended decompression to anyone I hear has a back problem.”
~ Doug H. / Police Officer
“I Had Neck And Shoulder Pain For Years, Now I Am Pain Free And Enjoying It”
“Before beginning cold laser and decompression therapy I was in pain daily. The pain I was experiencing was in my neck, shoulders, and head and had been present for years. When I slept on either side @ nighttime, my arms were going numb.
Prior to decompression, the constant pain affected my life greatly as I enjoyed working out and being active. I had approximately 8-10 shots in my neck and upper back area, and frequently took pain pills and muscle relaxers. Additionally, I tried physical therapy, [but nothing worked until I tried Dr. Hanson’s Program.]
After decompression therapy, I have been pain free and thoroughly enjoying it. The daily headaches and neck pain is gone and I have started going back to the Gym and walking my dog.”

“Hairdresser Gets Rid of Her Low Back Pain Thanks To Dr. Hanson’s Cold Laser – Spinal Decompression Therapy”
“I always had back pain 90% of the time. I couldn’t turn in bed without pain, and I [felt] a heaviness in my legs. To put it in a nut shell, I had a lot of discomfort. I never heard of cold laser and decompression therapy until my husband showed me the ad in the paper and I thought it described my problems, so I decided to call and have a consultation.
Now that my treatments are over I feel great, and the special care Dr. Hanson gives is exceptional. My first day was a caring and happy experience. I am a hairdresser and it is important to me to be pain free. I can do my work without pain and this is a wonderful feeling.

“Eight Years of Low Back Pain Gone Thanks To Dr. Hanson’s Cold Laser Therapy”
“I had been experiencing pain for about 8 years. I was going to the chiropractor sometimes 3 times a week with only temporary relief. The pain was to the point that pain killers, ice, and lots of Advil were the only way to cope. I was even leaning towards [low back] surgery.
I’m real active in golf, tennis, racquet ball, fishing, hunting, and a plumber by trade. If you have a hard time bending at the waist, and can’t turn, your life is going to change. Full time pain is pretty much a big zero on the scale.
After 15 visits of Dr. Hanson’s Therapy, the pain was gone. Now I’m not saying this lightly, I’m saying GONE. [I suffered with] Eight years of pain every day, all day long …[and it was] GONE.” I continued the therapy for two more weeks, as advised, 24 visits in all. I tested the back very well, carried heavy stuff, crawled under houses, sat in recliners, (instead of the floor). I did all the things I had done before [with] NO relapses. NONE.
The staff was courteous, professional and knowledgeable on all aspects of the therapy. Thanks Dr. Hanson & Staff!”

“Nurse Drives 5 Hours to Complete Dr. Hanson’s Low Back Program”
“Before starting therapy I had burning and pain in my lower back. I’ve been plagued with these problems for about 15 years, and they have been constant.
I have tried everything from prescribed medication, to chiropractors, to medical doctors, and nothing worked. I couldn’t walk long distance or stand for long period of time. I always needed a grocery cart or wheeled basket when I went shopping. I needed some sort of support when I walked.
After my 20th treatment, I can stand for longer periods of time, kneel for prayer, and sit with less pain.
Dr. Hanson and his practice is an answer to my prayers. I’m very grateful for your help. May God bless each one of you.”
