Welcome to the Arena Chiropractic new patient center!
Knowing what to expect when you begin care will help you understand what we are doing and why. We have found that the more a person understands about the process, the better the results. What follows is a brief overview of what will happen on your first office visit.
Next you will have a consultation with Dr. Aleksander Chung to discuss your health-related problems, concerns, as well as potential treatment options. Your first visit is designed for Dr. Chung to learn more about you, your condition and your expectations to determine whether chiropractic care will you meet your goals, concerns and needs.
After your consultation, Dr. Chung will perform a complete chiropractic examination including standard neurological, orthopedic, postural, muscle and physical examinations.
Studies Based on the findings of your consultation and examination, your specific condition may require us to obtain x-rays. Our office is equipped with the state-of-art digital X-Ray machine. X-ray images help rule out more serious conditions as well as enable us to view your spine from a mechanical stand point.
Report of Findings
Once all the information and examinations have been performed, Dr. Chung will give you a report of findings to answer the following questions: What's wrong? Will Chiropractic help? How long will it take?
Once all the proper findings are gathered and the patient is informed of his/her options, treatments can begin. The treatments may include spinal adjustments, soft tissue therapy (muscle stretching and strengthening) and physiotherapies such as ice and electrical muscle stimulation to reduce swelling and inflammation of the affected areas.
