Dr. Caroline Ruppert is originally from Tiffin, Iowa. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in exercise science from the University of South Carolina in 2006. In 2010 Dr. Caroline graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa with her Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
During her time at Palmer College of Chiropractic, she was a Gross Anatomy tutor, Neuromuscular System teaching assistant, as well as a Clinician's assistant in the Palmer Clinics. While attending Palmer College Dr. Caroline took the unique opportunity to travel to India with a group of fellow students. The trip included donating free clothing to the less fortunate and giving free chiropractic treatments to less privileged areas that did not have access to health care.
In February 2012, she began volunteering for the annual Peak Potential Outreach health care service trip to provide general health screenings, blood sugar tests, as well as chiropractic adjustments to the under-served and underprivileged school systems of third world countries. During the 5 days, on average the group treats about 600 patients with complaints ranging from sports injuries and headaches, to stomach pain and advanced neurological disorders. In May 2013 she was named Board of Director for Peak Potential Outreach. Peak Potential Outreach has partnered with the Shriner's Hospital in Hawaii, making it possible for some of the children they serve to be able to receive much needed surgeries. Dr. Ruppert intends to continue raising money for this organization and donating her time and services for future trips.
Dr. Caroline utilizes the Gonstead technique and believes in holistic health of which chiropractic care is an important part. Dr. Caroline holds a state certification in nutrition and has taken continuing education courses in diagnostic imaging, disease prevention and wellness, advanced adjusting technique and pediatrics. She facilitates the body’s ability to heal itself through gentle and precise chiropractic adjustments, which restore proper nervous system function. Dr. Caroline cares for patients of all ages from infants to the elderly, with problems ranging from headaches and back pain to allergies and asthma.
In her free time, Dr. Caroline enjoys playing volleyball, golf and spending time outdoors with her husband.
She looks forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your health and wellness goals!
