Chiropractor and Table Tennis

October 16, 2011

 Contributed by Brad Fuller

For the next two weeks, I’ll be observing Dr. Stromberg, a chiropractor who practices right across from campus and is a huge Wilmington College promoter. I spent my first two days there on Monday an Tuesday, and it was really neat! I don’t want to be a chiropractor, but I feel like I learned a lot of useful information by observing there. In the athletic training program here, we take Head, Neck, and Spine Evaluation our junior year. Learning some information about the spine before hand will only give me an advantage in the class. Yesterday, I learned some basics about reading x-rays of the spine and what to look for when there is a spine issue. I obviously have a lot to learn, but I still got to learn some basics that I did not learn in class!

 

On another topic unrelated to athletic training, I will be playing in my first table tennis tournament this weekend! Josh Kincaid, a junior here, recently started an official Table Tennis club on campus, and we will be traveling to Indiana to participate in an official USA Table Tennis tournament, where we will receive our rankings after playing round robin style and will be able to compete in tournaments in the future! Its an exciting thing for me since I don’t play any sports any more and it will be an opportunity to watch some very good players and possibly improve my game some.
