Santiago, AKA Dr. Santi, brings BreakingThrough to North County San Diego 8 years of experience in outpatient orthopedic medicine rehabilitation. He specializes in manual therapy for a multitude of diagnoses with emphasis on neck and back pain, chronic pain, joint replacement, and general rehabilitation. He completed his major in biology while at Ramapo College in Mahwah, NJ, and then went on to complete his doctorate in Physical Therapy at Rutgers University in NJ. He is board-certified in orthopedics and certified in Blood Flow Restriction Training, 3D MAPS, and Kinesio tape. He is working on his manual certification through the University of Saint Augustine which is highly successful for a majority of his patients.
Santi had the pleasure and honor of working for our active duty, military retirees, and their family at the Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton for 3 years. Being in this environment, he was able to perform procedures such as dry needling which is not in the scope of Physical Therapy in California, yet. However, he developed an extraordinary sensitivity in his hands to treat trigger points and differentiate from other conditions such as irritated soft tissue. It also allowed him to differentiate between a trigger point and other abnormal conditions. It allowed him on one occasion, to tell a patient to seek further medical help because her symptoms and my palpation findings were abnormal. Unfortunately and luckily, the patient was able to be diagnosed by his/her physician with an early stage of breast cancer.
