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!

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…
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 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!
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 m professional ballroom dancer, so I had awful pain in my lower back when I came here first time. Now, after 3 month I feel much better.
I recently moved and needed to establish with a new chiropractor. John and Mike are happy to accept new patients. They listen to you and treat you based on your needs. How refreshing to find a dynamic duo who personalize your care!
John saved me from horrible, daily headaches that I was suffering from for 3+ months. I am pretty tolerant to pain but they were bad enough for me to take multiple painkillers with not much effect. I had signed up for pain management doc and the appointment was months away and I figured I’d come back to John who I saw a couple of times before for another issue with my shoulder. After literally 2 visits, I was managing without painkillers and with maintenance sessions, headaches are practically gone. He *always* has a warm smile and encouraging words, I am so grateful to have found someone whose expertise I trust and who I genuinely enjoy seeing. I’ve sent my mom and my brother to him! And if he can’t do much for your issue – he will tell you straight up. Outstanding!
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!!
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!
