I have been going to Mike and John for the past 3+ years and they are hands down the best chiropractors that I have ever been to. It started out with a neck injury and I had a 1/2 marathon race the week after. After a few visits, they were able to help me and I ended up PRing that race. I continue to go to them for tune ups and also when I’m preparing for a race. Also, they are both very personable and easy to talk to!
Dr. John Rotundo is the founder of the practice and now Director of Physician Services. He, Dr. Michael Gazaleh, and Dr. William Magill have successfully treated thousands of Hoboken/Jersey City residents since establishing Hudson Family Chiropractic in 2000. They incorporate exercise, stretching, trigger point massage, physiotherapy, and gentle chiropractic manipulation into the overall treatment protocol. John, Mike, & Bill are all Hudson County residents.
The chiropractors do not use “cookie cutter” treatment plans. Each patient is treated according to his or her condition. Some patients require more extensive therapy while other patients require only a few visits. You will only receive the treatment needed and once your pain has dissipated, you will be released from care and advised to return only when needed.
Our physical therapists, Sejal Mair, PT, OCS and Suzanna Skomial, PT, DPT, NCS have extensive experience in treating a wide variety of patients with orthopedic, neurological, vestibular, and pelvic floor conditions.
Our therapists will use techniques that are designed to address a specific functional need of each patient. These dynamic activities must be part of an active treatment plan and be directed at a specific outcome. Please see our Physical Therapy page for more details about therapy and rehabilitation techniques and specific conditions that can be treated.

I was nervous about going to a chiropractor since I’d never gone to one, but I tweaked a muscle in my lower back and needed help. My personal trainer recommended Dr. John Rotundo at Hudson Family Chiropractic and I’m SO GLAD I went. He explained everything he was going to do and look for, answered all of my questions, and had me feeling better after my first visit. I only needed 3 visits over the course of 2 weeks and I’m feeling 100% better and can get back to the gym! I highly recommend paying Dr. Rotundo a visit if you’re looking for a good chiropractor in the area. Super friendly, easy to get to, and easy to get an appointment.
John is wonderful! I have been going to chiropractors since I was young do to a back injury. John is the first chiropractor to address my problem areas with complete confidence and professionalism. Every time I leave this office I think why did I wait so long! Definitely getting on a regular monthly appointment!
I just finished physical therapy [pain in right knee] at Hudson Family Chiropractic and Physical Therapy and could not have asked for a better experience.
The center has worked wonders on me! When Nicole C. [PT] listened to my goals and history to determine the best workouts, she asked the right questions. She then analyzed the information to create the best plan, tailored for me. No cookie cutter approaches here.
Nicole is the best PT I could asked for. She gives you good exercises to work on and monitors you while you are doing exercises. As you progress, she adds on more to challenge you. Nicole gives you focused individual attention, using different techniques to treat your condition. Working with her has been an always pleasant personal experience.
The center is flexible with scheduling, always on time and had a very social, friendly atmosphere.
My favorite chiropractors ever! Educated me and also listened to me. I am a furniture maker and they helped me get back to work a few different times and also helped me maintain a healthy back when I wasn’t injured.
I am a longtime patient of John and Mike and found their services to be professional, proficient, and effective. I can always count on getting an appointment in a reasonable time and getting in and out is fast. But recently, I needed the attention of a Physical Therapist, and that’s when they referred me to their therapist, Nicole.
My first meeting with Nicole was extremely pleasant and I was quickly impressed with her knowledge in her profession. She made me feel comfortable and she explained what was causing my pain and what her course of action would be. Within a few days, the pain had almost disappeared and I started for feel great. She continued to work with me and again, the appointments were around my schedule and we got to work and I was out the door never feeling rushed.
I want to personally thank the staff at Hudson Family Chiropractic, John and Mike for the work that they do and also Nicole for her skills in getting me back on my NEW bicycle.
Great job Guys.
I’ve been coming to Hudson Family Chiropractic for almost 3 years now. I’ve suffered from neck and bulged disc pain for years before coming here. I also used to suffer from headaches every day; however, Dr. John and Dr. Mike are miracle workers. I now barely get headaches anymore and my neck pain has eased drastically. I now have a quality of life without the pain and suffering I had before coming to Hudson Family Chiropractic. Thank you so much!
Hudson Family Chiropractic was my place for treatment when I lived in Hoboken for several years. Dr. Mike & Dr. John are both fantastic, easy going and great at what they do. Dr. Mike, who usually treated me, always listened and answered any questions that I had. He also treated me throughout my pregnancy, which was great. Everyone there is welcoming and friendly. I moved to the suburbs right before I had my son and I really miss these guys a lot. A wonderful family office. Highly recommend!!
Doc John sets the tone for a great experience at Hudson Family Chiropractic and truly adds the “family” feel to the office. As someone who has been a proponent of chiropractic for the past twenty years, I have had the good fortune of seeing Doc John and Dr. Mike for nearly a decade. I maintain a very active physical regimen with sports and excercise playing a part of my entire week. There is no doubt that John and Mike’s efforts allow me to go that much harder throughout the week. Their practice features wonderful, professional and friendly folks and I enjoy seeing them each time I can. I fully recommend Hudson Family Chiropractic to those that need relief from strains, sprains or tweaks. Kudos to their team and thank you!
I always get great results from the professional and helpful staff. The chiropractic care has been instrumental in my active lifestyle.
