Biographical Information


William J. Ruch, D.C. graduated from the University of San Francisco with a B.S. in Biology and received his D.C. from Life Chiropractic College West in 1986. Dr. Ruch spent seven years developing spinal and pelvic dissection procedures and has studied, photographed and x-rayed hundreds of human cadavers in the course of his research; his extensive photographic library of these studies form the core material for the book Atlas of Common Subluxations of the Human Spine and Pelvis (CRC Press, 1996). He has taught dissection of the human spine at Life Chiropractic College West for 6 1/2 years, during which time he amassed the extensive knowledge of spinal and pelvic pathophysiology upon which the text heavily relies. He has maintained a private practice in Oakland, California for nine years. He has authored nine articles on clinical anatomy in the Journal of Clinical Chiropractic, and has also had cadaver specimen and x-ray photographs published in the book Clinical Chiropractic by G. Plaugher, Williams and Wilkins, 1993.
