LOOKING FOR A “SPANISH CHIROPRACTOR NEAR ME”
After a car accident, many people will go straight to their cell phones and do a Google search for “Spanish chiropractor near me”. The reason is that the United States has 41 million native Spanish-speakers plus 11 million who are bilingual. This makes the US now the world’s second-largest Spanish-speaking country after Mexico according to a study published by Instituto Cervantes. With this fact in mind, P.I. HELP Injury Clinics- The Car Accident Chiropractors in San Antonio, TX and Salt Lake City (Murray), UT have entered the world of bilingual healthcare to better serve and treat the Spanish-speaking population in our communities.
A search for “Spanish Chiropractor near me” can provide better healthcare
Bilingual healthcare isn’t just about being able to verbally communicate with patients. It is also about providing a more comfortable experience and better quality of care by communicating in a way that patients can fully understand. This starts with a fully bilingual staff and by providing medical intake forms and handouts in Spanish and English. A fully bilingual chiropractor can do their own patient intakes face-to-face which helps them to better understand and assess the patient’s injuries and needs from the initial examination to the end of their physical rehabilitation treatment. Communicating in a patient’s first language opens a space to:
- Ask questions
- Explain medical treatment plans
- Reduce fears and anxieties from navigating healthcare and auto insurance settings
- Properly interpret patient symptoms
- Advocate for one’s own needs
“Spanish Chiropractor near me” searches can provide more cultural competency and respect
In addition, a Spanish-speaking chiropractor will usually be more culturally competent and sensitive to Latino cultural values like respect, friendliness, and kindness. Respect can be demonstrated by calling older patients señor, señora, don, or doña instead of by their first names. Friendliness can be reflected by asking about the patient and his or her family. Kindness can be displayed by avoiding conflict. A bilingual chiropractor will generally be more familiar with references to folk healer like curanderos, hueseros, and sobadores. They will be familiar with herbal therapies and traditional illness in Latino patients and can provide cultural context when providing treatment for patients involved in a car accident.
Finally, a “Spanish chiropractor near me” will know how to properly address patients by name. Some chiropractors find double or hyphenated Latino surnames complicated. Culturally-appropriate care can go a long way to building patient understanding and trust. At P.I. HELP Injury Clinics- The Car Accident Chiropractors in San Antonio, TX and Salt Lake City (Murray), UT, our chiropractors and staff treat all patients as individuals first while exploring possible cultural distinctions and bridging cultural gaps.
