Local Doctor Overcomes Childhood Adversity to Build Strong Practice

doctorGrowing up in the central valley town of Stockton, Calif., where his family settled after moving from La Piedad Michoacan, Mexico, Dr. Jesus Cazares, D.C., grew up in a hostile environment surrounded by drugs, violence, poverty and the loss of his mother at a young age. This gave him the strength to change directions in life.
Stockton Chiropractor, Dr. Cazares reflects and admires how much his parents sacrificed as field working immigrants in the United States in order to secure a better life, which gave his brother and him the opportunity to live the American dream. Throughout his childhood, he was exposed to limited resources. Nonetheless, he had everything he needed; a roof over his head, clothes on his back, food in the table and love from family.
By the time he began attending Franklin High School, Dr. Cazares had already seen the struggle among the Hispanic population to gain a humble living. He experienced firsthand the harsh environment of the farming fields, which instilled in him the perseverance to continue his education.
Dr. Cazares is proud of his achievements – and is thankful for family and friends who inspired him to never give up and rise above the challenges, as he became the first member of his family to pursue post-graduate education.   “Working in the field is very hard labor. To see my mother work so hard, and to pass at a young age, was very painful. Her work ethic inspired me.”
Dr. Cazares has continues to pursue his passion for learning. He attends educational symposiums on an ongoing basis and stays current with the latest updates in the areas of Chiropractic, Functional Medicine, Physical Rehabilitation, Nutrition and Wellness. He has also recently completed additional post-graduation education and now is a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (CCSP).

He uses several techniques in his practice to get the best results possible. He currently specializes in treating disc herniations, whiplash, low back pain, neck pain, headaches and sports injuries of all ages.
Dr. Cazares has strong roots in the community. As a member of the San Joaquin Hispanic Chamber he is determined to reach and help those in need.  He has been featured for his accomplishments in multiple publications including Vision magazine and The Bartlett at his Alma Mater.  His goal is to improve each patient’s quality of life, to optimize level of functioning, and to personalize treatment to the needs of each patient.
