"I came to Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Rochester in October 2015 for frequent headaches, migraines, and clenching my teeth in my sleep (TMJ). This process, when explained, makes so much sense. The frequency in headaches have decreased and I've noticed my TMJ has been less severe. I've also seen an improvement in my balance, stability, overall mental state, as well as becoming more regular.
If you believe that healing cannot be done overnight and are sick of trying new drugs after pills after procedures with no result in sight, this type of chiropractic care is something you need to look into.
I've only been going to Dr. Ed for a few months, and I can't wait to see where I'll be in a year. It is such a freeing feeling to wake up one day and realize "wait, I can't even remember the last time I was in pain". This healing doesn't happen over night, but it is the only thing that has truly found the root of my problem. I am so thankful for Dr. Ed and his amazing staff."

"I first met Dr. Ed on April 5th, 2016 and I am amazed how much he has helped me already! I was pretty much a mess. I have had constant lower pain for years. This pain had spread to my hips and knees and if I had to get down on the floor or bend down with my knees I had to have something near by to hold onto to pull myself back up and the pain was terrible. Just walking had become so painful. I also developed swelling in my legs and especially my ankles. I was also suffering with acid reflux for a few years. The pain also affected my sleep or should I say lack of it. I was getting so depressed pushing myself to get through every day and taking ibuprofen like candy. I then started having "Panic Attacks" - scared the heck out of me cause I wasn't sure what was happening at first and thought for sure I was going to die. My blood pressure was sky high and pulse racing so fast. I knew I had to do something and made my appointment with Dr. Ed. I can now swallow my vitamins without them getting stuck in my throat, the swelling has gone out of my legs and ankles, my back is almost totally pain free and I am getting used to walking normally - I was walking with a limp and wobble and you could hear a click in my hip, my blood pressure is AWESOME now and I am sleeping WELL! I am still struggling with my emotions - I know I will continue to get better and better. THANK YOU Dr. Ed for turning my life around and getting my head on straight! If you are thinking about trying Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care- do it! You won't be sorry."

"Back and neck issues have plagued me for years, nothing major but continuous minor pain. Throughout my teen years I rigorously trained martial arts and sustained several blows to my head and a severe broken nose. I carried the results of these injuries for years and to make matters worse my career only added more back and neck pain. As a pilot I spend hours at a time sitting in a seat that was never designed for optimal comfort or support. The time spent sitting for hours only adds pain and discomfort.
I tried normal chiropractic care for years and though the results were excellent they were always temporary. I had a conversation with a cousin of mine and he suggested Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care. I actually discovered Dr. Ed through his lovely wife Amanda who informed me that Dr. Ed was one of only a handful of Upper Cervical practitioners in New York State.
Since my first adjustment my sleep has improved to a wonderful quality that I have not experienced since my mid twenties. I no longer have the chronic mid and upper back pain that conventional chiropractic temporarily cured. My neck is nearly pain free and improving.
I highly recommend Dr. Ed Gigliotti. If your results are half as good as mine you will swear by this wonderful alternative form of medicine. Dr. Ed Gigliotti has done wonders for my overall health and well being. Thanks Dr. Ed!"

I am a Husband, Father, and Crossfitter, which means I need and want to be healthy. I used to deal with chronic neck and back pain, and always had to crack both of them. Honestly, I could barely sit still in my seat because I had to crack my back all the time. I started around Thanksgiving 2016, and have improved my posture, my stamina during work outs at the gym, and I can sit still without the need to crack my neck or back. Also, I have struggled with high anxiety all my life, and when I am in adjustment my anxiety is at a minimum. I am not gonna say I don't have anxiety anymore, because I do, especially when I am out of adjustment, but I can now live more at peace than I have in the past. Truly, I have brought out the BIG things that have changed in my life, but there are so many little things that have helped while being under Dr. Ed's care. If you are on the fence and you are unsure, I encourage you to make the healthy decision and get under Dr. Ed's Chiropractic care.

When I was younger, I received whiplash from a couple different car accidents I was in. When that happened, I didn’t receive the proper care; I went and saw a few chiropractors who had many different techniques. I was experiencing a stiff neck and back pain. It would get so bad I would just take something for it or I would continue to live in discomfort. In 2013, the amount of pain in my neck I was experiencing was unbearable and I knew something was really wrong. I was going to all different kinds of doctors: primary doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, neurologists, etc to try and figure out why I was having so much pain. I was experiencing tingling in my right arm and unable to raise it; debilitating pressure at the top of my clavicle bones, to the point where my neck wouldn’t turn. The pain made me feel trapped and have a feeling of hopelessness. I knew this was effecting not only my vitality, but emotionally and mentally. I felt like I couldn’t apply myself to my life; there was a sense of disconnect and just a feeling of being unplugged. I couldn’t feel excitement or see the joy in things. Nothing seemed to helped, nothing would take the pain away from my back, my neck, or my shoulder.
In 2014, I had a TIA type of event that lasted 40 minutes; I lost the ability to read and write as well as the feeling in my right hand. I later went onto be diagnosed with neurological-lime disease that was left untreated for many years. After that, I had periostalgia and neuralgia in my feet, legs and hands. My muscles would spasm and I have unbearable headaches. My whole system was out of sorts. I was being treated for Lime Disease, but I still wasn’t well. I still was having all of these symptoms but I knew there had to be answer. That’s when I went to see Dr Ed; after my first adjustment I felt so different! I felt this vitality; like life was brought back into me. This feeling of hope and excitement over took me. I went home, put on my sneakers and went running. Mind you, I haven’t ran in years and haven’t been able to walk up my stairs without feeling exhausted. It felt so good and I had tears of joy while I was running! And since being under care, I don’t have as many symptoms anymore! No more awful headaches, no more periostalgia, little to no neuralgia, no more pressure or pain in my clavicle! Things they attributed to my lime disease, now were going away. And for the first time in decades, I was getting a good nights sleep. I have watched and learned from Dr Ed that you have to trust the process; this type of care is not a quick fix and you have to be consistent. Dr Ed would not only explain things to me and answer all my questions, but actually listen to what I was going through. When people say, “this is a game changer, this will give you your life back”, its true! This type of care, has done that exactly for me! I am excited about my the future and being able to apply myself. It’s like a light bulb turned on! Having my nerve system clear and being in adjustment, helps my body and immune system to fight everything off. I don’t get sick like I used to and when I do, my body fights it off a lot faster. I am living proof that this type of care help and I am very thankful for Dr Ed and his practice.
