Dr. Hannah Eucker

Ridgefield’s Osteopathic Wellness Center and Dr. Hannah Eucker are holding an informational session on Osteopathic Medicine on Tuesday, September 13. Osteopathic medicine offers a holistic approach, inclusive of mind, body, spirit, including hands-on manipulation to maximize the body’s healing potential. Dr. Eucker is a recent graduate of the Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) Residency at St. Barnabas Hospital in New York, where she was chief resident. She completed her internship at the EMMC Family Medicine Residency in Maine and received her Doctorate of Osteopathy from the Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr. Eucker enjoys treating patients of all ages, from newborns and children to the elderly, on issues such as torticollis, poor sucking ability in newborns, developmental delay, antepartum back pain, asthma, COPD, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disorders, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, migraines, arthritis, cervical and lumbar radiculopathy, athletic injury, and trauma. She addresses the emotional and spiritual components as well, and enjoys educating as much as treating with her hands. She believes in empowering the patient with personalized discussions on medical management, diet and nutrition, exercise and breath work, stress management, and meditative techniques. Dr. Eucker plans to hold occasional workshops for further instruction at the Center. She also maintains her connection to academia by continuing to teach at the St. Barnabas OMM Residency program, where she is an attending physician.

The Tuesday, September 13 informational session will be held at 158 Danbury Road, Suite 6, Ridgefield at 7 p.m. For more information visit, call 203.438.9915 or email [email protected].
