I found Dr. John through a Google search of chiropractors near me. After looking at his rave reviews, I decided to have a consultation for some minor back pain that I was feeling. He took my xrays which showed what years of bad posture, stress and... other factors had caused. He thoroughly explained the importance of my spine and how the spine impacts my health and how I am feeling. He is extremely friendly and engaging, a wealth of knowledge and is transparent, addressing any concerns and questions that I had about my condition. After starting treatment, I have already started to feel a difference in the pain I was feeling and my overall health. I've also become more conscious and am now knowledgeable on how to improve my posture on a daily basis. I am so glad I did that google search and encourage everyone to take that step as part of their overall wellness to get their spine checked out. If you are unsure, I can vouch that Dr. John is the real deal and all his reviews are beyond accurate.read more

For years we were trying to get my daughter relief from chronic headaches and backaches. We have seen neurologists, doctors, tried physical therapy and more. None of these other doctors ever took the time to evaluate and come up with a game plan... even after very expensive MRI’s, until we saw Dr. John. He took his time to listen to what she was experiencing. Then took X-rays and studied them to come up with the best treatment plan. We have only just begun and already see a difference. It is the first time my 13 year old has not complained about a daily headache and her posture is improved. It is the first time a Doctor has been invested in long term results and a lifetime of health. Would highly recommend Dr. John.read more

Dr. Jon is awesome. I had really painful ribs and he helped me get them back in order and heal them. I really appreciated that instead of just “fixing” the problem, he would take the time to educate me and give me at home things to do to help... maintain the corrections. Definitely my favorite chiropractor in Bergen County.read more

I can't say enough good things about Dr John McHugh. I've known him since I was a teenager when he began adjusting my mother. My mom suffered horrible allergies (including allergies to allergy meds) but when she saw him all spring season, it was the... first time she felt good. I see John now as an adult and he continues to be just as great. He's knowledgeable, professional and caring. I would definitely recommend him.read more

Dr. John McHugh is a great chiropractor, very clearly cares for the overall well-being of his patients. The best part about it is the relief my body feels after an adjustment, and simply the fact that he’s not just a well experienced specialist, but... also a friend to all! When I first started seeing Dr John, I suffered with severe pain in my lower back and shoulders and have seen correction/improvement in my pain, my overall posture and general quality of life. The office is very well kept and clean.read more

You could tell he knew what he was doing as he used various methods. Now i see him a couple of... times a month to keep the spine in shape. Very professional and pleasant as well. Highly recommend!read more

So incredibly thankful for Dr. John. For years I have experienced neck, back, hip, knee, and wrist pain (including carpal tunnel)! Dr. John is the only chiropractor I have had that did an Xray to get to the bottom of my pain. He listened so... carefully about all other health issues and made connections to the spine. I have loved working with him and after only a few visits I noticed such a difference. Now a couple of months in and I am so improved. Thank you Dr. John!read more

Went to Dr. McHugh on short notice. My back started acting up on Thursday and I called Dr. Mc Hugh on Fri. He squeezed me in that day. He refused any treatment until x-rays were taken. Upon reviewing my 2 x-rays he saw the problem right away. My... spine was curved to the left and my pelvis was rotated. After just 2 sessions I am able to walk. I had spent Thursday,Friday, and Saturday bedridden. I needed to get a ride to him on my Friday appt. My 2nd adjustment was on Sunday. Thank you so much to Dr. Mc Hugh for getting my mobility back quickly and for coming up with a game plan for me to follow going forward.read more

I’ve been dealing with sciatica pain for about a year, but overall back pain and plantar fasciitis for 13 years. After I got no answers from orthopedics, neurologists, physical therapists and a variety of other doctors and therapists, I decided to... try Dr Mchugh based on recommendation from a FB group. I’ve seen other chiropractors in the past and didn’t have much faith based on previous experience: but I needed to do something for the severe sciatica that had me bent over in pain. I was immediately impressed that Dr Mchugh would not adjust me until he saw my X-rays. No other chiropractor ever took X-rays. When we sat down to review the X-rays: I had more answers from 3 X-rays than I did from multiple MRIs and scans done by other doctors. I even had answers for my plantar fasciitis, which is not even what I was there for! After my first adjustment, I was amazed, the pain was practically gone! Two weeks into treatment, my posture is much improved. Dr Mchugh designs a treatment plan based on your individual issues and executes it in a professional and compassionate way. If you want to be pain free and have a healthy spine, this is the place to go. You’ll be amazed by the multitude of ailments that will get better, things you never knew can be fixed by a knowledgeable chiropractor. I will definitely be bringing my entire family to see Dr Mchughread more

As someone who has worked at a desk job for over 10 years back/neck issues are something I’ve dealt with. During the past year of working remotely it’s gotten worse. I was referred to Dr. John from a family friend and while speculative of going to a... chiropractor, after several failed in the past, I am glad I did. After only a short time he’s helped me get my back in a better spot, and for someone who golfs it’s been a world of difference. Highly recommend you consider Dr. John if you’re experiencing in aches or pain he’s the best!read more

After reading all the other reviews, I completely agree that Dr. McHugh is one of the best chiropractors out there! He’s detailed, caring and transparent. He asks the right questions, watches and listens to you. The office is beautiful and clean. He... cares. His practice is not about getting a lot of patients and cookie cutter treatment. He specializes in your own personal needs for wellness. This is the first time in 32 years of being treated for back pain that I equated my treatments with actual wellness. It’s comforting to learn about what’s happening instead of being talked about treatments. If you’re searching for a lifelong regime where you see and feel the difference, this is the place! Thank you again Dr. McHugh. I’m a big fan and repeat customer!read more

I have been living with some of the worst crippling pain in my shoulder and down my left arm that I've ever had in my life I've dealt with sciatica I haven't been to a chiropractor in 15 years and a friend suggested I come see you. And so three... trestments later literally only three adjustments later and the pain is GONE.EVERYDAY...EVERY MNUTE II am forever grateful 4 what you've done for me...grateful after a lengthy previously inconceivable "body position" that would ALWAYS result in excruciating, crippling, debilitating, defaeating unassailable eternal pain.I DO NOT THINK ABOUT THAT WHICH HAD CRIPPLED ME!!so thank you Dr. Johnread more

I've been to many chiropractor's over the years and they were okay at best. My first down in Paramus was great, unfortunately he is no longer there. Recently I was telling my nurse friend how my neck/upper back was so bad I was looking at surgery,... she said I had to go to Dr John before doing anything. My primary also said don't even think about surgery... So on a Saturday while we were having this conversation over FB, the doc chimed in and asked how soon can you be at my office. His office is not even open on Saturday. I was already impressed. So I jumped in the car and away I went. Well I have to say I never experienced a more thorough evaluation, I was there for at least an hour and a half and the Dr walked me through every step explaining what was wrong and how "we" are going to fix it. I had very high hopes and was extremely confident in the Dr at this point but still somewhat skeptical about how much could be fixed. Well it's been a few weeks and after months of pain and a few times almost going to the emergency room for pain, I went from a constant 7-10 on the pain scale to a 0-2 depending on the activity. No more apprehension, I'm totally sold and will continue to follow the long term plan. The proof comes not only in the relief of the pain but the science behind the Dr's method which he explains throughout each session, and what the x-rays will show at each milestone. If you are having back trouble of any kind I would highly recommend paying Dr John a visit before you decide to do or go anywhere else. I'm a data guy and I work for a company that I guarantee you use every day, I'm so glad I was referred by a trusted friend before going under the knife. Thank you Dr John!read more

Dr. McHugh had me go through a full health screening including x-rays and a chiropractic stress exam.
