I was desperate to get some relief for my lower back pain as well as the
excruciating sciatica pain going down my leg in late August 2013. Dr.
Evangelista’s initial assessment was extremely thorough, and he identified the
problem accurately (i.e. herniated disc). He is very knowledgeable and
answered all my questions to my satisfaction. His academic credentials and
experiences speak for themselves. Subsequent treatments provided me with
greater relief. He used gentle techniques (Cox technic) to relieve the spinal
nerve. As Dr. Evangelista predicted, my sciatica pain was practically gone within
To help with my back pain, Dr. Evangelista taught me some back exercises. By
November 2013, my lower back pain was almost gone. Despite Dr.
Evangelista’s advice, I returned to my aerobic classes too soon. This led to
some setback, which prolonged the duration of my treatments. Dr. Evangelista
was absolutely right in emphasizing on strengthening the core muscles and on
special exercise routines before returning to more challenging exercises.
Nevertheless, Dr. Evangelista was always helpful and kind. I am very grateful for
the treatments that he provided me.
