After injuring my back weight lifting, and suffering pain for over 2 weeks I knew I needed professional help. I was fortunate enough to find Dr. Bill Magill of Hudson Family Chiropractic who was excellent. The combination of heat therapy, stretching, and a few adjustments alleviated the pain completely in 3 sessions. I appreciated the fact that he took additional time and didn’t suggest or execute risky adjustments to my neck as others have tried to do in the past. I hope he continues to practice in Hoboken for a long time, and this review builds his clientele as we need to keep him in Hoboken

Hudson Family Chiropractic and Physical Therapy
Many women experience neck and back problems as well as sciatica during their pregnancy. Many women ask “Can I visit a chiropractor while I’m pregnant?” The answer is yes. Chiropractic care can help tremendously in these situations. Pregnant women are treated with special, gentle care that will not cause harm to your baby. Our office has a special table that allows the abdominal piece to drop down. This allows a pregnant woman to comfortably lie face down while these procedures are performed.
During pregnancy, the body goes through amazing changes. With the spine, pelvis and other parts of the body moving around during every stage of a pregnancy, musculoskeletal dysfunction can occur, resulting in disorders that can affect your joints and musculature, causing significant pain and discomfort.
With the body changing drastically, the spinal column itself moves to accommodate a child and the extra weight. The pelvis undergoes many changes to compensate for the growing baby as well. Risk of muscular joint dysfunction and interference of the nervous system can increase as pregnancy continues. The pelvis supports the growing uterus with specific ligaments. If the bones of the pelvis become restricted, this will cause asymmetrical ligament support of the uterus. This results in a more difficult passage for the baby during delivery.
These structural changes can affect the nerves and the spinal cord, disrupting the normal communication of information between the brain and the body. Our chiropractors can adjust a spine and extremities to help the body feel relaxed and subside pain or soreness.
Benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy:
- Help reduce or eliminate restless leg
- Decrease lower back pain
- Reduce or eliminate headaches
- Reduce nerve pain
- Decrease joint pain
Childbirth and pregnancy take an enormous toll on a woman’s body. Many women are being treated for repetitive stress injuries that occur as a result of being a new parent. Repetitive stress injuries (RSIs) are disorders that are caused by performing everyday tasks with poor posture, such as carrying a baby in an infant car seat, breastfeeding, bending over to put your baby in the crib, etc. Never mind the stress of having to take care of your baby on small amounts of interrupted sleep.
These injuries can cause pain in your neck, shoulders, wrists, elbows, upper back, and lower back. Our chiropractors and physical therapist are trained to relieve your pain, and educate you on how to perform certain activities with correct posture to prevent RSIs.
Also, many women will need to learn how to manage low back pain and weakness that occurs as a result of being pregnant, giving birth vaginally, or undergoing a c-section. The good news is, physical therapists are experts in managing and rehabilitating this type of condition!
So, if you’re looking for pain relief and rehabilitation of any spinal or extremity condition, we are here for you. Also remember to check out our postnatal pilates rehabilitation page: Pre/Postnatal Pilates

What Patients are Saying…
I was having really bad neck/back pain and called Hudson Family Chiropractic to make an appointment. They fit me in quickly and my appointment was beyond thorough. Dr. Bill took his time evaluating my pain, asking questions, and providing suggestions for my treatment. I very much enjoy coming here and am thankful for Dr. Bill and Dr. Mike’s professionalism 🙂
I have worked with Dr. Mike for years. His gentle, attentive approach to chiropractor work takes all the nervousness about going to get an adjustment. And he doesn’t just do adjustments. He does deep stretches to ensure a correct spine adjustment and will even recommend exercises to do to improve posture. He is knowledgeable and incredibly effective. I always feel notably better after each visit. He is humble, friendly and extremely easy to work with. Do not hesitate in seeking his services for all of your chiropractory needs. You will not be disappointed.
I always get great results from the professional and helpful staff. The chiropractic care has been instrumental in my active lifestyle.
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!!
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’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!
It was my first visit and the entire experience was seamless. The staff was very communicative with me prior to my appointment, online registration made things a lot easier, and Bill was excellent. He took the information I provided and was able to help me get started with pain relief. Super happy I found them!
I absolutely LOVE Dr. Suzie! She has helped me so much with PT. She is always so nice and down to earth! I fully recommend seeing her if you are dealing with any sort of pelvic discomfort / pain after birth.
I woke up yesterday with terrible back pain that got unbearable by the end of the day; a big issue since I couldn’t pick my 4mo out of his crib. I googled Chiropractors near me and Hudson Family came up in the results. A big reason I chose them was because they have a pelvic floor specialist and I assumed that was part of my problem. I was able to book a first time appointment for the following morning (amazing). I went in this morning and had a great experience with Dr. Bill. He listened to everything I had to say and did multiple things to try and ease the pain (which he did). He also did a great job of explaining everything he was doing which I always appreciate. I left feeling so much better and booked a followup appointment for early next week!
