Chiropractor Alafaya Orlando FL Ilean Santos Meet The Team

Chiropractor

Ilean Santos D.C.

Dr. Ilean Santos grew up in Corozal, Puerto Rico, and completed her bachelor’s degree Cum Laude at the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras. At 24, she decided to move to Marietta GA to pursue her degree in Doctor of Chiropractic at Life University, where she graduated cum laude in 2015.

She worked as an associate doctor for 4 years in the largest chiropractic office south of Atlanta, serving many families. She also worked in Lutz FL for a year. Even though she grew up in Puerto Rico as well as her husband, decided to move to the East Alafaya Orlando area to raise their family there. For Dr. Santos, Alafaya Orlando feels like home since she grew up visiting a lot as a child.

“I grew up thinking that when I reach a certain age, I am destined to take medications to live better. I grew up thinking that having ‘this diagnosis’ is just part of aging and life. I grew up thinking that masking the symptom with a pill was the final answer to my complaints. I remember as a kid dealing with severe constipation, allergies, and asthma. For me, my normal was to leave school sick and stay homesick for a couple of weeks. Growing up, then I started dealing with severe throat infections, migraines, low back pain, TMJ disorders, numbness on my left hand, PMS, gastritis, and stomach issues. Yes, all this before the age of 25. I tried it all, the specialists, the CT scan, the therapies, and medications and I just kept wondering if there was something else I could do to heal my body, besides taking a pill. My life made a shift when somebody finally talked to me about my body’s ability to heal through a healthy nervous system. I not only started chiropractic care but decided to become a Doctor of Chiropractic. I can tell you I’ve been on both sides. Healing has been a journey, think about 20+ years of stress, toxins, and traumas recorded in my brain and nervous system. I'm a living testimonial that chiropractic works and is part of our lifestyle as a family.

Chiropractic Alafaya Orlando FL Carlos Pérez-Gabriel Meet The Team

Carlos was born and raised in Toa Baja, Puerto Rico, and has always been passionate about sports, health and active lifestyle. After a back injury practicing for a church theater act, he was introduced to Chiropractic by Dr. Santos.

He then seeks care in Puerto Rico and was able to heal from that injury. What he did not know was how chiropractic care was more than just for back and knee pain. As a kid, he was diagnosed with attention deficit (ADD), motion sickness, and constantly getting sick. Like many kids today, he struggled to focus on school and was prescribed medications for that. Fast forward, he has been consistently under chiropractic care for over 8 years, and not only he is healthier now, but he does not have to take medications for focus and attention. Chiropractic care also helped him through training for his first full marathon (26.2 miles) and he was able to finish the race without stopping in less than 4 hours. He is passionate about exercising, and as a personal trainer is always learning how to help himself and others reach a healthier lifestyle. When he is not running Arise Family Chiropractic you can find him learning and practicing CrossFit and how to strengthen the body with proper movements. He also counts years of experience as Chiropractic Assistant and is looking forward to helping this community get healthier.
