Being a student at UVIC can be tough. Endless hours of lectures in uncomfortable, non-ergonomic seats, note-taking, all-night study sessions and deadlines, inactivity, and perhaps the worst of all- the pressure to perform while being constantly tested and scrutinized.
All of these stresses can accumulate and take a toll on the body, and result in a number of health issues. Quite commonly these can be (but are not limited to) things like:
Neck pain, tension, headaches, migraines, mid back pain, low back pain, hip stiffness, wrist/shoulder/elbow pain, insomnia, and digestive issues. These are simply the inherent mental and physical demands of being a student.
While there is little that can be done to actually avoid the necessary stresses of being a student there are things that can be done to help manage these stresses and help you to be at your best. Chiropractic care is one of these things, and local chiropractor Dr. Mark Smith (at Progressive Chiropractic, close to the University of Victoria) can help.
The issues listed above and more are problems that many patients come into our office seeking help with, and the useful in-office technology used helps identify the true underlying cause of many of these spinal-related issues.
If you are a UVIC student or have friend at UVIC who is suffering from health issues like the ones above there is help, and you may also have chiropractic health care coverage through your parents or through the UVIC student society. Contact us at 250 590 7319 to see how we can help.
