Born and raised in the heart of Bayonne, New Jersey, Dr. Santiago's journey took him from the depths of the ocean to the world of chiropractic care. 🌊
At just 22 years old, he embarked on a remarkable adventure, joining the U.S. Navy and training as a Hull Technician at the Groton, Connecticut Nuclear Submarine Base. His path was destined for even greater challenges as he set his sights on becoming a Navy SEAL, commencing his B.U.D.S. training in Coronado, California.
However, fate had different plans in store. A lower back injury and wrist injuries during his training meant a different chapter awaited him. Returning to the fleet, it was here that he met the love of his life, Denise.
After his service, Dr. Santiago faced another battle—finding relief for his injuries through the V.A. Healthcare system. Disappointed by the limited options available, he persevered, earning his bachelor’s degree in biology at Northern Arizona University.
But the turning point came when he sought chiropractic care at the recommendation of his wife, a long-time chiropractic patient. For the first time, he found relief from his Navy injuries. 🙌
Fueled by this transformative experience, Dr. Santiago knew his calling lay in chiropractic care, offering a non-invasive path to a pain-free life. He moved his family to the city of Dallas, Texas, and earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Parker College of Chiropractic.
Settling in Lewisville, TX, he realized this was where he wanted to raise his family and establish Santiago Family Chiropractic. 🏡 👨⚕️
Now, with deep roots in Texas and a heart full of compassion, Dr. Santiago is dedicated to helping as many people as possible achieve the dream of a pain-free life through the power of chiropractic care. 💙
Dr. Santiago has now brought his 18 years of experience to Gun Barrel City with is lovely wife Denise now that both of their boys have graduated from college. They enjoy spending time outdoors, fishing, RVing as well as cooking, grilling and smoking foods. Dr. Santiago also brings his extensive knowledge of treating auto injuries to the area and looks forward to being an active member of the community.
