Christopher Wydler, a student at Keizer University College of Chiropractic Medicine (KUCCM), was initially drawn to learning more about treating and preventing injuries because of his experience as a lifelong baseball player and is looking forward to working with athletes after earning his PhD in chiropractic to take care of April 2023.
Wydler, who got into the sport as a minor footballer when he was five, shared that he still has a love of the game despite regular injuries that limited full mobility until he received chiropractic care as an adult. As a result, he has focused on a career in alternative medicine after earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Physiology with a concentration in Biomechanics and Kinematics from Ave Maria University in 2019.
Now, just months away from graduating and with plans to eventually open his own practice, he is grateful for the passion his teaching experience has inspired while dedicating time and attention to lectures, laboratory work, and clinical training opportunities. When asked what he would recommend to others who are striving to achieve their goals, Wydler shared several recommendations, including a reminder to celebrate daily accomplishments — even the little ones, to strive “to be better than the day before.” ‘, and these professors should be approached with questions on a regular basis, as they are never afraid to help.
