Welcome to Hug Chiropractic Clinic

Call us today at 205-967-0280.

We are pleased that you have taken the time to learn more about Hug Chiropractic Clinic. Dr. Reginald Hug acquired the practice in 1971 and built a model for chiropractic care that was ethical, honest and based on quality research. In 2003 he announced his successor, Dr. Brad Russell, who has endeavored to use contemporary scientific evidence to provide the best care not only to the over the mountain community but now to the greater Birmingham area as well.

Recognizing the need for high quality chiropractic care in adjacent areas around Birmingham, we began recruiting exceptional like-minded chiropractors who strive to deliver superior, conservative treatment. Dr. Lake Franklin joined the practice in 2008 followed by Dr. Jill Bivona in 2016. We acquired Dr. Jonathan Griffiths' practice in Clay/Chalkville in 2012 staffed by Dr. Bill Elliott and opened a Gardendale/Fultondale facility in 2016 staffed by Dr. Kent Glover.

Our mission is to provide the most conservative, evidenced-based, ethical, and effective treatment model for patients suffering from mechanical pain, i.e., back pain, sciatica, neck pain, headaches and other pain syndromes related to muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones and joints. From our initial consultation through treatment or referral, you can be confident that the Hug Chiropractic staff will recommend the most appropritae and highest quality protocols possible.

Please take a moment to navigate our site and learn more about us and our efforts to improve the quality of your health. Welcome to the first step in your journey towards feeling better.

    'There was a time in my life that I really relied on drugs . . . Dr. Anderson taught me that I was not doing anything better for my body by relying on drugs. He explained that I needed to get to the root of the problem by finding what was making me feel bad in the first place. I made the decision that I was going to invest in myself and my healthy. Since then, I've been making healthier choices and living a healthier life. I sleep well, have more energy, and living pain free! The investment was totally worth it!'
