About West Coast Chiropractic Center

Dr. Derek Rupp grew up in Lancaster, CA and knew at an early age that natural health was what he believed in.

When he was in high school he was injured on the football field and his dad took him to see the family chiropractor.

After his football injury had healed, he realized that he no longer suffered from allergies or heartburn; this gave him his first experience of the power of chiropractic and what it can do. From that point on he wanted to learn more about chiropractic.

“I knew I wanted to help people live a healthier, happier and longer life, and the best way I felt I could achieve that was to become a Chiropractor.”

Dr. Rupp is a 1996 graduate of Cleveland Chiropractic College in Los Angeles. Dr. Rupp uses the following chiropractic techniques; the Palmer method, Webster technique certified, Chiropractic Biophysics (CBP), Activator, and Gonstead.

Dr. Rupp has been treating patients in the Carlsbad, since 1996. He loves the family atmosphere of his office. His favorite time of the day is after school when many children come to the office to get adjusted. Many of our patients get to know each other and enjoy sharing the benefits of chiropractic with their loved ones.

Dr. Rupp enjoys the outdoors and focuses on doing things as a family. One of his favorite hobbies is camping in the desert and taking off on long dirt bike rides with his family. When he is not riding dirt bikes he is enjoying the surf, the mountains and rock climbing, or just running down the coast training for his next triathlon.
