Prenatal Care in La Grange

If you are pregnant, Chiropractic care can help in many different ways.  Dr. Vic is Webster Certified by the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and Dr. Beau will be finishing his certification in 2019.


How Does Chiropractic Help?

There are many physiological and neuroendrocine (hormonal) changes occurring during pregnancy.  Since the nervous system controls every single function within the body, it is important to make sure the brain and the body are communicating without any interference.  Neurological-Focused Chiropractic Care can help to guide these changes efficiently and naturally.

Factors That Interfere with Pregnancy

A few factors that may cause pregnancy to be a more difficult experience are things like: misaligned pelvis/sacrum, increased lumbar lordosis (increase curve of the lower back) and hormonal imbalances.  Dr. Vic is a Webster Certified through the ICPA.

What Is Webster Technique?

The Webster Technique is a specific chiropractic sacral analysis.  The goal of the adjustment is to reduce the effects of sacral subluxation/SI joint dysfunction.  In doing so, neurobiomechanical function in the pelvis is facilitated.

Sacral subluxation may contribute to difficult labor for the mother (i.e., dystocia), caused by inadequate uterine function, pelvis contraction and baby mal-presentation.  Correction of sacral subluxations may have a positive effect on all of these causes of dystocia.

With a balanced pelvis and sacrum, mom’s will usually experience reduced lower back pain, less chances of having baby present a breech position, less labor time and less pain experienced.  The overall birth process is usually easier for the mother and the baby when under chiropractic care.

Is Chiropractic Safe During Pregnancy?

Once pregnant, some moms-to-be will wonder if chiropractic is fully safe. The Chiropractors at The Wellness Path 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.

Depending on what trimester you are in (1st, 2nd, 3rd) will determine what adjustments Dr. Vic and/or Dr. Beau will utilize.  Our tables are designed to help a mother, regardless of what trimester, feel comfortable throughout the adjustment.  The doctors will typically utilize the Torque Release Technique up until trimester three and then, utilize the Webster Technique from that moment on until the birth process.

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.
