The University of Ghana School of Law (UGSoL) had long been concerned about the posture of their faculty and staff. Sitting in front of computers for long hours and hunching over books had taken a toll on their health, and the administration was worried that this would lead to serious health issues.
Yesterday, the Dean of the School, Prof. Raymond A. Atuguba decided to invite a team from the Chiropractic & Wellness Centre in Accra, to give a talk on how to correct bad posture and prevent health problems.
The team doctor, Dr. Courtney Brown, was thrilled to be invited and prepared a comprehensive presentation on the importance of good posture and how to achieve it. He emphasised the importance of regular exercise, proper ergonomics, and regular chiropractic adjustments to keep the spine healthy.
After the talk, the Chiropractic & Wellness team offered to give the faculty and staff individual massages to help ease any pain or discomfort they were experiencing. Many of the faculty and staff eagerly signed up for the massages, excited to receive some much-needed relief.
A massage station was set up on the first floor by the team, where they worked their magic on the willing participants. The staff and faculty could not believe how relaxed and rejuvenated they felt after the massage, and many expressed their gratitude to the Dean for inviting Dr. Brown and his team to speak and offer massages.
In the subsequent weeks, faculty and staff who signed up for chiropractic care will visit the Chiropractic & Wellness Centre for regular chiropractic adjustments and massages.
The chiropractic session, which would ensure that UGSoL becomes a healthier and more vibrant community, was held in line with the School’s strategic objective of putting student, staff, and faculty wellbeing and welfare first.
