Dr. Elizabeth M. Hansen
Dr. Liz Hansen graduated from Dowling College in New York with a BA in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. After college she began to work in the field of Chemistry and after a few years she was looking for more. Her initial desire was to go to medical school but what happened next changed the course of her studies. An automobile accident occurred on her way home from work one day and she suffered a whiplash injury. Initially she went to an orthopedist for relief but found none. Her mother suggested she see a chiropractor and she did. She was skeptical but open to relieving the pain she had in her neck. When she learned that Chiropractic was an all natural way of allowing the body to heal she was interested but when she had relief from first adjustment she decided to become a Chiropractor. Deciding on the University of Bridgeport Chiropractic College she graduated in 2001 and has practiced in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
