Vidan Family Chiropractic is devoted to offering the best form of wellness healthcare available to the greater St. Louis area. We're always look for the most natural approach to taking care of you and your family's health.

Our goal is to optimize your body's own God given potential to heal and keep itself healthy and well without the use of drugs or surgery. Our patients ages range from newborn to 103 years old.

Dr. Alex Vidan
Dr. Alex Vidan was introduced to chiropractic by a friend after a sports injury while in college. At the time, he suffered from regular and painful headaches. He had such amazing results through chiropractic care that Dr. Vidan decided to pursue chiropractic as his profession. He received his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree in 2004 from Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Missouri. Dr. Vidan uses his degree in Kinesiology (the study of human movement) background from Louisiana State University, and his Human Biology degree from Logan to encourage natural methods of achieving and maintaining overall health and wellness to his patients. These degrees are also very helpful when caring for athletes. Dr. Vidan was a team physician for the St. Louis Cardinals in 2010 and during their 2011 World Championship season.
Adjusting came very naturally to Dr. Vidan. While at Logan, Dr. Vidan was asked to be the adjusting tutor, teaching other students how to properly adjust patients. He was privileged to study under some of the best chiropractors in the nation. This experience was vital in providing Dr. Vidan the skills needed to give his practice members the best care possible. He also remains active in the community by serving on the Advisory Board of the Mid County YMCA, volunteering at the Salvation Army, and has served as both Vice-President and President of the BNI Central Corridor Chapter.

The Missouri State Chiropractic Association recently named Dr. Vidan Vice President of District 1.
Dr. Amy Grabowski
Dr. Amy Grabowski, originally from Buffalo NY, was introduced to chiropractic after having a herniated disc after a lifting injury at the age of 15. She sought treatment from her primary care doctor who sent her to physical therapy. She was then faced with potential surgery until her father brought her to his chiropractor. After chiropractic treatment, Dr. Grabowski was not only able to perform all her activities of daily living, but also able to get back on the soccer field. It was after this experience of avoiding surgical intervention at such a young age that Dr. Grabowski decided to pursue chiropractic as a career.
She started her studies at the University of Pittsburgh- Bradford where she was a member of the women’s soccer team as well as active in the school and community with the Blue and Gold Society as well as the Special Olympics.
Upon graduation, she attended Logan College of Chiropractic where she graduated with both her Doctorate of Chiropractic and her Master’s degree in Sports Science and Rehabilitation. Dr. Grabowski completed her clinical internship for her Master’s program in her hometown of Buffalo, New York at the Buffalo Spine and Sport Institute, a multi-disciplinary setting working closely with physical therapists, physiatrists, and orthopedic surgeons.
From 2009-2011 Dr. Grabowski practiced in Arlington, Virginia at NOVA Pain and Rehab. While at NOVA Pain and Rehab, Dr. Grabowski worked with an extensive array of athletes at different levels in their career, most notably the WUSA Women’s Rugby Team, as well as the general public. While in the Washington D.C. area, Dr. Grabowski was also able to give back to the community by volunteering at local events such as the Marine Corps Marathon and Relay for Life.
In 2011 Dr. Grabowski moved to the St. Louis area where she worked for ProActive Chiropractic in Arnold, MO for 7 years immediately prior to joining Vidan Family Chiropractic. Additionally, she worked with St. Louis FC during this tenure in Arnold. Dr. Grabowski is enthusiastic about applying chiropractic to help patients feel their best, perform their best, and live their best lives. She is passionate about helping athletes, pregnant women, and kids of all ages.
Dr. Grabowski lives in Fenton, MO with her husband, Sam, and their two sons, Patrick and Declan. The family enjoys being outdoors together, playing or watching sports, and Disneyworld.
