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!

Treating torticollis with physical therapy
Torticollis is a condition defined by an abnormal, asymmetrical head or neck position. Many conditions may lead to the development of torticollis including: muscular fibrosis, congenital spine abnormalities, decreased blood supply to the muscle, difficulty during delivery, and positioning of the baby inside the uterus during the last few weeks of pregnancy.
It is highly important to have torticollis treated to prevent a permanent shortening of the involved muscles. In addition, therapy can help avoid needed surgery and decreases head and neck pain.
Marissa Servello, PT, DPT, ATC will perform an evaluation to assess the child’s passive range of motion, active range of motion, muscle tightness, muscle strength and gross motor skills. Other conditions will be checked for including hip dysplasia and spine problems. Physical therapy may include active and passive stretching of the neck and shoulder muscles. Positioning and handling techniques may also be utilized to correct the child’s posture.
Instructions may also be provide for the family to perform at home on a daily basis.

What Patients are Saying…
Super friendly and knowledgeable support staff. Dr. Bill McGill mostly, and seemingly magically, resolved shoulder/back problem. Definitely going back!
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!
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 🙂
Awesome 👏 felt immediate difference Staff great and friendly- thorough exam and treatment.
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!!
The best PT and Chiro I have ever been to. I couldn’t recommend it more. They have great service and very knowledgeable staff
I came to Hudson Family after having a car accident in May 2023. I was going to see a chiro in a small NJ town for a month n moved to Jersey City for work. Mike is amazing. The first session I had I felt like completely renewed. After 2 months I pretty don’t even need chiro just touch up sessions because Mike is soo good. This is a real review they are the best. Convenient locations 5 star service and they have a gift with their hands!
Was a full thorough exam/chiropractic experience with Dr. Bill. Was a very comfortable and nice place. Going twice more this week for my back.
Exceptional service at the front desk at this clinic. Doctor Mike was excellent and really diagnosed the cause of pain on my back which was killing me for eight days. Literally left the office feeling so much better on the very first visit. The friendliness and professionalism was luxury. I can not wait to see the doctor again and continue to see and feel the results of my healing. Highly recommended. Amazing and relaxed atmosphere too.
