Prenatal Chiropractic in La Grange

For those who are experiencing infertility, Dr. Vic wants to help you become pregnant. Our fertility program usually begins about four months before a woman is looking to conceive. He works with both the husband and wife. Chiropractic, supplements and nutrition are used to get them stable preconception and then after.


De-stressing the Nervous System

The nervous system is what controls every single function (cell, tissue, organ) in your body. If you are having difficulties trying to become pregnant, there is a good chance there is a subluxation occurring in your nervous system which is affecting how your body functions. Your body has an intelligence within it that governs and controls all things which we call, “innate intelligence.” This intelligence knows when the body can take on the extra stress of pregnancy and when it will not be able to. Having a chiropractic exam and neurological scans (insight subluxation station) can reveal if you have subluxations within your nervous system but more importantly, how well your body is functioning.

Balancing Hormones and Boosting Nutrition

Before a woman can become pregnant, it’s important that her hormones are balanced. Moms-to-be will use the DivaCup where they will track their flow, so we know exactly how hormones are balancing. We also use ovulation strips so women can find out when they’re ovulating. It’s essential that they have three good periods as part of their fertility program. Then they can start working on conceiving. We want to ensure that everything is functioning and getting back to that balanced state.

We also address nutrition for those who want to become pregnant and other practice members. To ensure that your body gets the proper nutrition it needs, we recommend Vitamin D, fish oil, probiotics and a multivitamin. For those looking to conceive, we’ll show them the benefits of vitamin D in terms of helping with conception.

Is Chiropractic Safe During Pregnancy?

Once pregnant, some moms-to-be will wonder if chiropractic is fully safe. Dr. Vic will explain how it’s safe and can help with common pregnancy complaints like back pain and nausea. Chiropractic also can reduce the length of labor and delivery.

For the first adjustment, Dr. Vic will adjust your neck while you’re seated. During the second trimester, you will lie down on a pregnancy pillow for your comfort. When you come in during the third trimester, he will drop the table down. The whole adjustment will be performed while you are lying face down. Dr. Vic will use instrument adjusting (using the Integrator™, Activator® or ArthroStim®) on the pelvis, sacrum and lower back.

Benefits for Baby

During pregnancy, the baby is adapting to its environment. Depending upon how stressed the mom is, it’s going to affect the baby. When communication of the nervous system is clear, Mom won’t be so stressed, and her baby can grow and develop naturally as it’s designed to.
