Dr. Santiago was born and raised in Bayonne, New Jersey. He joined the U.S. Navy at the age of 22 where he was trained as a Hull Technician and was stationed at the Groton, Connecticut Nuclear Submarine Base before being accepted to B.U.D.S. (SEAL) training in Coronado California. This is where he suffered a lower back injury and injured both of his wrists, which forced him out of B.U.D.S.. He was then returned to the fleet where he met his wife, Denise.
Dr. Santiago packed up his wife and two young sons and moved to Dallas, Texas where he achieved his degree as a Doctor of Chiropractic at Parker College of Chiropractic. He settled in the small suburb of Lewisville and decided that this is where he wanted to raise his children and open his practice, Santiago Family Chiropractic. This is where he has finally set his roots, and looks forward to helping as many people as possible to achieve the dream that he has….of living a pain-free life through the help of Chiropractic.
