When I became a chiropractor in San Antonio and, more specifically, in the Castle Hills area, I made a promise to myself – I would extend the best care to all of my patients, regardless of the language they speak.
Working with clients from all over the globe – from Asia to Europe – helped me understand the importance of providing chiropractic care to everyone. To this end, and because of the large Latino community in Castle Hills and all of San Antonio, I decided to ensure each of my Latino patients gets proper treatment even if they’re not that familiar with the English language.
My bilingual Latino clients also benefit greatly from the opportunity to describe ailments in their native language – being able to understand them in Spanish guarantees that I catch on to every nuance when listening about their health.
Seeing how large the Latino community in Castle Hills was made me understand the importance of catering to it. Despite Latin Americans making up for nearly 40% of Castle Hills residents, nobody offered affordable chiropractic care to Spanish speakers – this had to change.
My Latino clients are as diverse as they come. Some are office workers, small business owners and pregnant moms whose jobs force them to sit in a chair longer than is healthy. Others have physical jobs in construction or teachers that have them stand upright, but still suffer damage caused by hunching over or performing repetitive actions over longer periods of time.
Latino athletes and sports enthusiasts are also among my frequent clients. They want professional care that will remove any aches causing them to underperform. More than that, they’d like to gain an edge by feeling healthier and more energized.
