With nearly 11 inches of snow recorded in Portland, many different kinds of injuries happened, and we’re here to help!

Auto Insurance—What To Do

After a Winter Accident
Auto insurance can be tricky after an accident.
You’ll want to ensure that you know what is covered and what is not. Additionally, it’s important to get care soon after your accident to avoid circumstances where your injury could be questionable by the insurance company.


Open up a personal injury claim with your auto insurance, telling them what happened with the winter accident, and what kind of care you’re seeking. Call us up and let us know what’s going on so we can help you as best as possible. The more information we have, the better we’re able to help you.


We’ll evaluate you and help you determine the best next steps for your case. If your injuries require additional medical help, we’re happy to work with additional providers to make sure you’re back to feeling like yourself in less time.


Gentle Care for Winter Injuries

Even a small slip and fall can cause a long-lasting injury if it isn’t addressed. Make an appointment with Shephard Chiropractic Clinic in Portland for your realignment and pain management needs. Doing something is always better than doing nothing (and hoping it will go away—because it probably won’t.)


We’ll use gentle and precise methods for acute injury care, knowing that too much pressure can be detrimental, or even stressful for those already in pain. We’ll keep you comfortable throughout your appointment and take the time to understand your injury and concerns while we carefully explain our process.


If a winter slip or car accident has impacted your daily life, please come in to Shephard Clinic, so you can start living your day-to-day as it was, pre-injury.
