Auto Accident Injury Expert

Concerned driver with defocused traffic accident

If you live in Wichita or the surrounding area and have been injured in an automobile accident, Dr. Dopps has the experience and specialized training to get you the full recovery you deserve. We have worked with 100's of satisfied patients who have been injured in car accidents, and get great results using our specialized care using chiropractic and acupuncture for auto accident injuries.

What happens to your body after an Auto Accident?

A car accident transfers violent forces into your body injuring delicate anatomical structures within the spine and other area's.  During and after an auto accident your body releases adrenaline and endorphins as a protective mechanism from trauma physically and mentally.

A release of adrenaline in the body activates several protective responses:

  • Increased energy
  • Reduced, or even no pain maybe present
  • Dilated blood vessels and airways that increase the flow of oxygen
  • Increased strength
  • Changes in your vision and hearing for better awareness of surroundings

Your body also releases endorphins at this time to help you feel more calm and relaxed after an auto accident and injury. Endorphins also affect how the body responds to pain and stress. In some cases, you don’t start feeling any pain or soreness until hours or even days after a car accident when the adrenaline and endorphins finally wear off.  These natural pain killers can be present in your body for several days after injury. This can be the deceiving part of many auto accident injuries because this decrease, or masking of pain can trick people into thinking they were not hurt as bad as they are.   

Common new or delayed onset symptoms we see in our patients after an auto accident:

  • Headaches
  • Blurry vision or dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Difficulty remembering things or problems concentrating
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Swelling
  • Back or Neck pain and stiffness
  • Shoulder, elbow, or wrist pains
  • Hip, knee, or ankle pains
  • Numbness or tingling in your arms/hands or legs/feet
  • Reduced range of motion
  • and more...

Dr. Dopps is a highly trained expert in auto accident injuries.  He specializes in locating, diagnosing, and treating auto accident injuries to get you better faster, and the problem actually corrected vs using medications long term or needing a surgery at a later time. 

We base our treatment recommendations off years of proven results that work.

"I was in a relatively significant auto accident in 2017 when a 19 year old ran a stop sign and hit the side of my truck totaling it. I was just a little sore for a couple days, but really not bad at all. However, a month later, even with having no pain for several weeks after the accident, I started getting radiating nerve pains down my arm which I have never had. With consistent treatment from my chiropractor here in our building, my neck and whiplash injuries healed properly and my issues fully resolved." -Dr. Matt     

Will my care be covered by insurance?

All auto accidents in our clinic are covered by insurance at 100% using PIP (personal injury protection) on your auto policy.  This means you are fully covered with no out of pocket expense.

Another very important thing you need to know in auto accident cases and insurance, is you do not want to put off care if you need it.  We have seen far too many times in the past that if a patient is hesitant on getting early treatment this creates more insurance company hesitancy and problems for your case.  It also sends the signal to them that your injuries must not be that serious, the longer you delay treatment.

If you have any questions or want to know more about the process, insurance, or our specialized care.  Please call today don't delay.  Same day emergency appointments are always available.  (316) 265-1575

(We also have connections with different attorneys in Wichita if your case needs assistance in that manner)
