Herbal formulas and vitamin and mineral supplements
I provide spine and extremity adjustments using the Cox table, a drop table, an arthrostim instrument and a tule board. These newer correction methods are safe, comfortable and effective. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, a licensed California acupuncturist and a clinical nutritionist, Dr. Patricia Rupert has years of training and experience with musculoskeletal issues and internal medicine problems.
I teach my patients exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem while showing them how to avoid microtear stretches and DOMS. (delayed onset of muscle soreness) A strong emphasis is also placed on proprioception work which keeps the musculoskeletal system balanced and youthful. All exercises, (or as I call them therapeutics), can be performed in the comfort of your own home with minimal equipment. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can also be out of place or strained by improper alignment, diet and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
I often find it helpful to "coach" patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Patients with scoliosis, ligament laxity and a history of a sprain/stain often need to modify certain activities and exercises to stay in optimal shape and avoid future injury. My goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. I recognize that each patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness as a collaborate effort between doctor and patient.
I provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance your return to optimal health. Proper nutrients can help minimize formation of scar tissue and can also help reduce the risk of degeneration. Don't wait to go from "itis" to "otis." Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Dr. Patricia Rupert can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
