Serving East Central Alberta with Evidence Based Care
Welcome to ECCR. With over 30 years in business, ECCR is dedicated to providing effective, evidence based care for Hanna, Castor, Consort, Oyen and surrounding areas. We look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your individual healthcare goals.
East Central Chiropractic & Rehab (ECCR)
ECCR is a multidisciplinary team of chiropractic service and massage therapies serving Alberta's East Central Region. With offices in Hanna, Castor, Oyen, and Consort, ECCR has a passion for providing evidence based care.
At the clinic, we function under an integrated healthcare model. We believe that everything in the body is connected. An injury will not just affect one tissue, joint or nerve, but all the surrounding structures working together as a whole. We believe that for those severe or chronic problems, creating an approach that incorporates treatment to the body as a whole, targeting problem areas and facilitating healing and proper movement patterns, will help solve ongoing issues. As a team of practitioners with a variety of training, skills and approaches, we aim to facilitate an environment in which the body can heal and you can reach all of your health care goals.
Research is showing more and more how important exercise and self strengthening is in preventing or fixing problems in the long term time frame. As a multi-disciplinary team, we want to empower you to overcome limitations through the use of tried and true therapeutic techniques: manipulation, massage, and exercise programs tailored to your individual needs. We want to get you back to living the life you want!
What is Chiropractic?
Doctors of chiropractic diagnose, treat and help prevent conditions and disorders related to the back, neck, pelvis, extremity joints and the effect they have on the nervous system.
The main form of treatment chiropractors deliver is called an adjustment – a non-invasive procedure consisting of a precise directed movement to help relieve pain and discomfort, and restore range of motion. Sometimes chiropractors will also use other therapies like massage, heat, laser and ultrasound.
A chiropractor does not prescribe drugs or perform surgery, but may make a referral to medical specialists for such treatment when appropriate.
In addition to adjustments, chiropractors also counsel patients regarding nutrition, lifestyle and exercise.
