Excellent5.0 Based on 117 reviews fromM SM S ★★★★★ I have been going to Dr. Evan for a few years now to treat a myriad of injuries sustained over prolonged periods of my life from sports, computer work, and poor posture / stress. After seeing Dr. Evan, my migraines have alleviated, my lumbar back pain is entirely gone, and my joints feel stronger and more fluid. I can't recommend him enough. He and his staff are fantastic, and he is incredibly in tune with sensing where blocks and stiffness are in the body. He is incredibly talented and skilled at what he does.Response from the ownerThank you so much for your kind review. 🙂 Emily NajemyEmily Najemy ★★★★★ Boxborough Vitality has simply made a tremendous impact upon my life, physical health and well-being. It almost feels as though the wear and tear that life had put on my body is reversed (and it’s the closest thing to it!) I was also able to lose 49 pounds, weight that my body simply was unable to shed until I started working with Dr. Evan Hughes and his absolutely wonderful team. This outcome and education on how the body works were beyond anything I have ever received from my PCP or doctors office, and if I could go back in time, I absolutely would’ve gone so long ago. I now feel so much more empowered to handle and care for my body, physically while going through life. This release of my physical tensions has done wondrous things for my mental health. I am all the more excited now that one of my family members has also decided to become a client of theirs, and I can’t wait to vicariously re-experience the what I got to go through.1000% recommend these guys!!!Response from the ownerWow! What a powerful review! Thank you for sharing with everyone. And we are so excited about your family member! 🙂 Jeff WoodJeff Wood ★★★★★ When I first started going to see Dr Hughes I could barely walk on the treadmill at the gym because my right toe and right knee hurt so badly (And I have a high pain tolerance) I couldn't sleep, when I lifted weights I felt like my shoulders were going to rip off and I could not sit up straight because my posture was so off.I saw a Facebook video of Boxborough Vitality and I thought if I feel this way at 43 how will I feel at 53, 63 and down the line so I reached out.Within a few hours I had a consultation set up and off I went to meet the team. When I arrived I there was a sign set up that said "Welcome Jeff!" I was instantly at ease. Doctor Hughes listened to me, took notes and asked me a simple "What do you want to be able to do again" I answered I want to be able to run again. I have been to a couple of Chiropractors before and none of them ever asked that question...I liked it because I am goal oriented and now I had something to strive for.X-rays were taken that day and then I went back the following day to get the results...as expected I was all crooked and my vertebrae's were a mess. Doctor Hughes slowly and patiently explained what was going on and then told me with confidence how he was going to correct it.He then asked me do you want a quick tuneup or do you want to go all in and correct all the issues? (contrary to some tv shows I have seen / articles I have read, long term neglect does not get solved in one visit)I went all in and I am glad I did. Every one of my visits starts with a greeting from Tina and then being assigned a room. Once you are laying on the table Dr Hughes comes in and starts his work. He will give simple instructions on how he wants your body positioned and then he starts the correction. That is the best part...Dr Hughes knows what adjustment he is looking for and sometimes your body won't give it up so but he knows what needs to be done and will try different techniques and when he finally gets your body to adjust he will give out a celebratory phrase like "There it is! or I got it" It shows he is passionate about what he does as well as thorough. The adjustments / techniques will change from visit to visit (he knows a lot of techniques and will use the best one for your situation)Then comes the hard part (for me) you go across the hallway and Tina gives you an exercise or a task to get your body stronger, looser and teach it how to respond to the adjustment you just had. I would ask her each morning how she was going to embarrass me today (joking of course) but she is always patient, non judgmental but insistent that you get the task correct to help your body.With all the adjustment and exercise the whole visit only takes about 10-15 minutes so getting to work on time is was not an issue and they have a good range of hoursFast forward to today...I am in phase 3 of my journey and I can say I feel better than I have in a long time. I can not only walk on the treadmill pain free I am now running for distance, walking at 12 inclines and I can lift weight at the gym like I haven't in 10-12 years. I stand straight and most of my pains are gone. Its hard for me to remember how I couldn't even walk a quarter of a mile due to pain.The Doctor and the staff will get you know you, they send you thank you's in the mail, they will give you equipment to bring home so you can keep progressing.I am not one to write a lot of really any reviews but this experience has been a very good one for me so and I hope that if someone is on the fence about going to Boxborough Vitality it gives them the push to go and at least meet with Doctor Hughes for a consultation.My novel is concluded....I look forward to my next adjustment Monday morning!Response from the ownerWow! Thank you for such an intricate review. We are so glad you came in and so excited to see your results alongside you! Jeff TuckerJeff Tucker ★★★★★ Couldn’t be happier with my experience at Boxboro Vitality. I felt major results based on my commitment of visits. Every time I visited the office my appointment was very prompt and pleasant. I’ve met several chiropractors and Dr Evan is certainly one of the best.Response from the ownerThank you for your kind words. 🙂 Mariana MirandaMariana Miranda ★★★★★ De Hughes is great! Went to see him at 39 weeks pregnant to help engage baby and within one appt he was able to help engage baby in right position!Response from the ownerThank you for leaving a review and we are so glad to be able to help. 🙂 Alice BartramAlice Bartram ★★★★★ “Maybe I should see a chiropractor,” I thought to myself off and on over the couple of years through which I had nagging knee pain. During a GP visit, a visit with an orthopedic doctor, few physical therapy treatments, no one really listened to me when I said “my whole right side feels out of whack” (to be fair to the PT, she was sympathetic, but since “the paper” only said knee, knee was all she could address). FINALLY I went to see Dr Hughes who listened, diagnosed and explained. About halfway through the prescribed set of visits and I can feel a real difference in the knee pain, hip issues and general sense of well being. Still a way to go, but am confident Dr Hughes (and his team) will get me there. Wish I hadn’t waited so long!Response from the ownerWe are so glad you are here now! Thank you for leaving us a review 🙂 michelle whittallmichelle whittall ★★★★★ We live out of state, but when we visit family, we try to find time for adjustments with Dr. Evan. This particular trip we signed our daughter up for a consult and exam because she's been having back issues with no one being able to help. Dr. Evan took time with her even though she's not a patient, did a full thorough exam - we FINALLY got answers for her longterm pain that no one else has been able to identify. Dr. Evan and his staff then went the extra mile to help us find a great chiropractor in SC that can fix the things with her. If you are local, you need to visit Dr. Evan - he'll give you a thorough exam and explain everything so that you have a full understanding of what is going on and how it can be fixed.Response from the ownerThank you so much for leaving a review. We are so thrilled you have found someone who can help in your state and we are so glad we could be part of helping your daughter. Rylie WhittallRylie Whittall ★★★★★ I have been in lots of pain for months now and no one has been able to give me any answers, Dr. Evan did an exam and adjustment and helped me tremendously. I wouldn’t have been doing the right things if I didn’t visit himResponse from the ownerWe are so glad you were able to come in and get some of those answers you have been looking for. Thank you for leaving a review. We appreciate it! Jennifer WilkinsJennifer Wilkins ★★★★★ Neck and shoulder pain brought me to Dr Evan. He is a listener and healer. He values his patient’s time and knows consists treatment makes progress. I have had significant improvement in mobility without pain.Response from the ownerThank you for taking your time to leave us a review. 🙂 Stephanie AdamsStephanie Adams ★★★★★ Dr. Evan Hughes saved my life. I mean that as ‘big’ as it sounds. After a car accident that nearly took my life as well as 60% of my vision (which I was told I’d never get back) I knew that the path I was on wasn’t going to lead me anywhere but to drown in it all. That all changed when I started my journey at Boxborough Vitality.Through the chiropractic care I receive, and putting all of my effort and energy into the advice and instruction given by Dr. Evan, my vision is back, my body is healing, and I’m stronger than I have ever been before, in all ways.Visiting the office is convenient, his office staff are pleasant, wonderful to deal with and knowledgeable. I couldn’t recommend Boxborough Vitality more!Thank you to the entire team who walked with me out of the dark!Response from the ownerThank you for leaving such a powerful review. We are so thrilled to be on this journey of healing with you! Karen TrainorKaren Trainor ★★★★★ Today Dr. Evan Hughes gave me hope. Tomorrow I will begin my journey of a better quality of life, that I was left without after surgery. I needed that today. Thank youResponse from the ownerWe are so excited to start this journey with you. 🙂 Ashley BannishAshley Bannish ★★★★★ I started seeing Dr Evan when I was about 6.5 months pregnant (third pregnancy) and could barely walk or stand up after sitting down due to back pain. I’ve always had lower back pain since I was in high school, and have arthritis in my spine as well as stenosis. I saw Dr. Evan three times a week right up until we moved to NC when I was just past 8 months pregnant. He worked wonders on me and I was able to walk and even chase my other two kids during the last days of my pregnancy. It was a miracle. I even had a much smoother delivery and went into labor naturally this time around. Thanks Dr. Evan!Response from the ownerWe're so happy to hear about the new bundle of joy that came easier. Congratulations! Thank you for your thoughtful review. Daniel AdrianoDaniel Adriano ★★★★★ It has been a pleasure to meet with Dr. Evan Hughes and the staff at Boxborough Vitality. Their care has been very valuable to me. I highly recommend them!Response from the ownerThank you so much for your lovely review 🙂 Abhishek ShettyAbhishek Shetty ★★★★★ I have been visiting Dr Evan last 4 months and it's been rewarding experience. When I came into visit, I had sever backpain but with proper diagnosis and frequent adjustments my pain reduces in few visits and with continued treatment my pain is gone now. Dr. Evan and his team took utmost care and highly recoeveryone. eveyone.Response from the ownerThank you so much for your kind review. 🙂 Jennifer LawlessJennifer Lawless ★★★★★ Dr. Evan is awesome! He is knowledgeable, professional and has a great sense of humor. I came in with a really injured low back, pain in my jaw, neck and mid back. My upper neck was completed inverted and causing jaw pain for 10 years. After a few months the post images showed the neck had realigned. Jaw pain gone.I was having trouble doing yoga and going from seated to standing. I had a severe muscle spasm in my low back that had left me very immobile. I had a hiatal hernia which he also helped by realigning my stomach. The remarkable transformation that occurred with the adjustments is nothing short of a miracle. Today, I am PAIN FREE and not experiencing reflux. I can’t express my gratitude enough for the healing modality of a top-notch chiropractor- especially one who works into the craniosacral therapies.I believe we need to be doing preventative spine health as part of a holistic program. I thought getting older just felt like this … painful cracking … I now know that I can grow older without pain. FREEDOM. Feeling thankful and grateful to have (what feels like) my 30 year old body back.Response from the ownerAmazing! We are so thrilled for you and love seeing progress alongside you. James KellyJames Kelly ★★★★★ I’d suffered from chronic bouts of cervical radiculopathy (pinched nerves and neck pain) for close to 15 years. It had gradually become worse and worse. Migraines, loss of feeling in some of my fingertips, unable to sleep soundly, and being a life long martial artist; it hindered most of my movements. I’d tried muscle relaxers, PT, massage therapy and even chiropractic care many years back but only ever got limited relief.I’d almost swallowed the fact that I thought I’d just be in miserable neck pain the rest of my life until the massage therapist I’d been seeing recommended Dr. Hughes. I’ll admit I was skeptical at first as my last chiropractor didn’t yield much results.Needless to say, I wish I’d found Dr Hughes years ago! His expert care, planning, and exercises have yielded amazing results. I’ve gone from having a migraine at least once every 2-4 weeks to not having had one since I started seeing him. It’s been 6 months! I can honestly say that it’s given me a new lease on life and health.To anyone dealing with chronic pain in your joints (not just the spine), do yourself a favor and see Dr. Hughes!Response from the ownerThank you for sharing your story. We are so glad to be a part of it. 🙂 E LE L ★★★★★ Had never been to a chiropractor before Dr. Evan. He is a wizard who works with you to address your concerns each visit; his compassion and care for his patients is evident. I recommend him to anyone!Response from the ownerThank you for your thoughtful review 🙂 Francie NoldeFrancie Nolde ★★★★★ The interminable list of "Now I can..." is a testament in itself for Dr. Evan. I never thought I would let a chiropractor crack my neck again. But Dr. Evan is so reassuring that I let him, and he continues to do maneuvers that clearly benefit my body. I can now stand up straight, walk faster, and balance better. I came in with hip pain at a 9-10 level and after 3 months it's way down. I expect it to get to zero in good time. I'm very grateful to Dr. Evan for his skill and ability to "read" my body. He tells me I came in like a little old lady and now leave like a sprightly older lady! Thank you, Dr. Evan.Response from the ownerThank you so much for your thoughtful review. We love your sweet spirit in the office 🙂 Yogesh KumarYogesh Kumar ★★★★★ Honestly I was skeptical about the process because of social media portraying neck snapping, spine cracking stuff but Dr. Evan was absolutely amazing. He meticulously listened to my issues before working on my back. We graduated at a very steady pace. Now I can really feel my body moving differently in just 3 months. Lot of energy, stamina, form, strength, flexibility. No more pain. No more limits. Thank you.Response from the ownerThank you so much for your review. We are glad you came in. It's been our pleasure. 🙂 Hugh FortmillerHugh Fortmiller ★★★★★ Evan's treatments have given me great relief from back pain, making it possible for me to start my day without debilitating discomfort. He has a great sense of just what needs adjustment and how my body is reacting; few practitioners have his touch and instinct. Evan and his staff work hard to make treatments effective and efficient. I'm 88, and I'm grateful for Evan's effort to keep me active and energetic.Response from the ownerThank you for taking the time to let others know about your progress. We are so glad to share in this process with you. H ParkH Park ★★★★★ After experiencing several different chiropractic practices between NYC, Toronto, and Boston, I can say that Dr. Evan Hughes at Boxborough Vitality is unequivocally skilled, effective and thorough. My neck pain and back pain is significantly improved. My entire family has been cared for as well with great results.Response from the ownerThank you for leaving a kind review. We are so happy to have your family at the office and to see results alongside you. 🙂 Jeanne BurhoeJeanne Burhoe ★★★★★ Dr. Hughes is magic! He and his staff work with you to develop an individual treatment plan to help you heal, using many different techniques including adjustments, muscle memory, muscle strengthening and balance to name a few. Best chiropractor I have ever been to and I've seen several over the years. Highly recommend!!!!Response from the ownerThank you for your kind review 🙂 Kylea LawnKylea Lawn ★★★★★ I absolutely wish I had come to Boxboro Vitality sooner. I was involved in pelvic floor PT, doing yoga, stretches, walks, and nothing has given me long term pain relief until I have come here. I believe that the physical therapy gave me a strong foundation of recovery, but the chiropractic work is what pushed me to be able to fully recover. I love how he involves energy work, balance work, and works with the entire body mechanically. Before I had my first appointment I had started to accept that I would probably be in pain for the rest of my life (and I am only 28). I left my first adjustment literally floating. I have never been this emotionally regulated and my nervous system is FINALLY calming down. I have been able to cope with the stressors of day to day life with EASE. Also, because my nervous system is so regulated, I don't even crave alcohol anymore. SO many aspects of my physical and mental health have improved, and I didn't even realize how much pain I was carrying with me until I started coming here. 20/10 recommend, do not wait any longer, come see him!!!Response from the ownerWow! Thank you for your detailed review. We are so glad you are here! Reap & Sow MinistriesReap & Sow Ministries ★★★★★ I'm about a dozen sessions in with Dr. Evan, and I cannot even begin to express how happy I am that I decided to prioritize my own health. I've been living with a nagging pain in my back and left hip for almost a decade. I'm at the beginning of my healing journey with Boxborough Vitality, but I can say with absolute certainty that Dr. Evan is helping me in ways no one else has ever been able to. I've tried other chiropractors, acupuncture, pelvic floor therapy, yoga, etc. Nothing has helped. For the first time in a decade I am experiencing relief... And I just KNOW that I am at the beginning of feeling like a whole new me. I can't recommend Boxborough Vitality enough. Dr. Evan can help you. He's amazing. Funny too!Response from the ownerThank you for your kind words. We are so excited to be on this journey with you! Alexandra CroninAlexandra Cronin ★★★★★ I came from my first appointment and it was way less scary than I thought it would be, I can’t believe it took me so long to make an appointment! Dr Hughes was really nice and very thorough and for the first time in months I feel hopeful that there is an end in sight to my back/neck pain, etc!Response from the ownerThank you so much for your kind review 🙂 js_loader
