Low back pain Pelvis Hip Pain Herniated Disc
“I couldn’t believe that being out of alignment could have led to these discomforts.”
In my experience with Dr. Pete Tsiglieris, I have had many changes take place in my body. To start out, when I was 15, I was suffering from low back pain that was pinching the sciatic nerve causing hip pain. This pain was felt at random times, and at times could make any pressure on the left foot unbearable going straight to the hip. Along with this pain, at “that time of the month”, my hip would go numb from about my belly button to just blow the buttocks. The numbness was accompanied by a tenseness and discomfort in standing sitting and laying down. I also had tightness in my upper back and shoulders. I am an insomniac, have been from birth, along with suffering from horrific nightmares. About six months before I met Dr. Tsiglieris I had been diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IFD) and Irritable Bowl Syndrome (IBS) and associated arthritis. All at the glorious age of 22!
It took me about six months to fully understand all the changes that my body had gone through as a result of being in alignment. The first thing that I had noticed was, that my hips no longer went numb…Wow! And after about three weeks without any hip pain at all I realized it must have been a result of being in alignment. We found that my low back pain was due to the abnormally great angle of my coccyx, in which Dr. Tsiglieris recommended exercises to alleviate the pain, but that pain no longer pinches through my hip… at all! The next thing was that my IBS had not been acting up. Since the initial adjustment I haven’t had any symptoms. I couldn’t believe that being out of alignment could have led to these discomforts, and I never would have dreamed that something so simple could have fixed them. I am sleeping more through the night, instead of waking up about 5 to 10 times a night I now wake between 1 and 2 times a night. And just today I realized after waking up to a nightmare, that I haven’t had one in almost a month. The nightmares were every night for as long as I can remember. The arthritis I have been suffering from has not flared up as severely since being in alignment, and the IBD is less severe as well.
The most amazing thing is that I have my life back. For the last two years I had become a victim of my ailments, constantly depressed, sometimes bedridden at 9:00 pm from abdominal pain and feeling completely helpless. And the worst of it was that my family felt helpless, my mother would cry at times because she couldn’t help me or comfort me in my life of constant pain, be it from one area or another. For the first time in a long time, I feel my age, and I can be my age. I can stay out till midnight, or take spontaneous trips without wondering if I will be ok. Or ruining it because I don’t feel well and someone feels like they have to stay with me. I HAVEN’T BEEN LIVING FOR ALMOST SEVEN YEARS, I’d been hiding hoping no one noticed me (that way I would not have to go anywhere), AND NOW I CAN LIVE AGAIN!!!! I FEEL GREAT!!!! My family was so impressed with my recovery through being in alignment that they all decided to get checked by Dr. Tsiglieris and now my dad can stand for more than five minutes at a time without pain, my mom feels “right” to use her exact words, and my brother says he feels he can stand straighter, and he has less pain.

“Now, it’s three months since I stared working with him and I feel completely different”
Dear Dr. Pete Tsiglieris,
Toward the end of July, I fell straight down o my tailbone. I was stunned at the time and more than embarrassed. I’m 48 and I fell off a swing at a playground! At the time, I thought all that was wounded was my pride. But over the next two days, I began to feel an awful pain that would shoot up my back from my tailbone when I sat down, especially if it was a firm surface. The sofa was okay but a kitchen chair was painful. I tried soaking in hot baths with Epson salt. It tried mineral ice products. I did some easy stretches to try and ease the pain. Nothing was working and I was scared. It felt like the fall had jammed everything up toward my head. I suddenly felt old and was terrified that I’d really hurt my body and worse yet that it might stay that way.
After three visits to Dr. Pete Tsiglieris, the tailbone pain was completely gone. During two of those visits, I got an adjustment. On the third one, the adjustment was holding so he only charged me for a check-up. I decided to keep going back for more visits because I could see this kind of chiropractic care was really effective. I told Dr. Pete Tsiglieris, I really wanted my posture to improve and for my back to get stronger. He gave me some simple exercise I could do every night. They just took a few minutes but he told me it was a consistency over time that really worked.
I take improv classes and my teacher, who is also my best friend remarked how much more relaxed and confident my body looked. I know it sounds incredible but I feel it helped my confidence. When I went to Dr. Pete Tsiglieris, I was telling him how nervous I’d been lately…not just from the fall I took…but I wasn’t sleeping good and I didn’t have the energy I used to. Now, it’s three months since I stared working with him and I feel completely different. I can see my posture is better. I have more energy. I can see and feel my stomach muscles holding my stomach up which is supporting my lower back. My neck muscles are a lot stronger and I can feel when I’m leaning too far forward at the computer…a bad habit I’d developed. Before, I didn’t pay too much attention to my posture but my body reminds me now. I am amazed how much more aware I am of my posture and the balance of my body.
I highly recommend Dr. Pete Tsiglieris. Not only is he an excellent NUCCA chiropractor with a gentle touch, he’s a down-to-earth and caring person…and his fees are reasonable.
“My energy level is improving”
I was diagnosed with a herniated disc. I was unable to stand straight, and muscle spasms caused one leg to be shorter than the other.
My spine has righted itself. I feel much better. The pain is nearly gone. My legs are now back to being the same length. My energy level is improving. I am able to travel. My body continues to heal.
“I am extremely pleased with the results from having been treated at Advanced Spinal Care”
I have had low back pain since I was fourteen years old, after a rear end car accident. It progressed to the point where I would have pain down the right leg that would get severe at times. I also had developed pain in my upper back that would come and go, sometimes feeling like someone had stick me with a knife in between my shoulder blades.I had been to conventional chiropractors off and on with some results = about 50% reduction in pain, but it had always returned.
I went to see Dr. Tsiglieris after I noticed the lower back pain getting bad again. When I would stand for any length of time I would feel pain down my right leg and it was getting worse.
Since having the upper cervical correction about two months ago there has been about a 90% reduction in both the upper and lower back pain, with no pain down the leg at all. I am extremely pleased with the results from having been treated at Advanced Spinal Care and would recommend Dr. Tsiglieris to anyone, especially those who have had minimal results with other methods.
“I could not stand straight anymore”
I used to get excruciating pain in my lower back, that would radiate down my legs for two years. My work requires me, at times for hours, loading and unloading kilns and other types of labor, the pain became daily, and so intense that I could not stand straight anymore. I also had knee pain more often which was from an old knee injury. I took a lot of painkillers such as Advil.
Finally I am able to work without being in such pain, I don’t have to take pain killers continuously, and my knee pain has improved.
“Your technique, which is much less intrusive, has offered me sustained health and relief and has allowed me to get on with my life”
Dear Dr. Tsiglieris,
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all that you have done for me. I have been to chiropractors all over the country for the last 15 years and they have never offered me anything more than a short-term solution for my lower back problems.
Your technique, which is much less intrusive, has offered me sustained health and relief and has allowed me to get on with my life. And, my legs have remained the same length for three months now. That in itself is a minor miracle.Thank you again for all your help.
“My low back does not hurt anymore”
I came in with major low back pain, neck pain and stiffness, tingling in upper left leg. Doctors advised painkillers such as Tylenol or Advil, which did not help at all! I am now able to bend over without any pain (more flexibility), my low back does not hurt anymore. I feel great overall now!
“I was in a great deal of pain because of a severe back injury that occurred several years ago”
I heard Dr. Tsiglieris’ radio program, “The Third Opinion,” several months ago. I decided to make an appointment to see if his method could help ease my back pain. After the initial consultation, I decided to give it a try. I was in a great deal of pain because of a severe back injury that occurred several years ago. I tried other kinds of treatment over the years, but none of them were giving me lasting relief. Dr. Tsiglieris’ treatment was surprisingly painless and I felt an ease of discomfort after the visit. I continued with subsequent visits and followed his advice to maximize treatment. I am now able to perform tasks that I have not been able to do for years, and I enjoy the quality of life that I thought was lost.
