“As a child, my parents took my entire family to the chiropractor for wellness care.”

I loved going to Dr. Troxell.  I looked forward to every appointment because I liked how it made me feel. I would go in for my adjustment feeling good and come out feeling even better. I saw many people with different kinds of health problems respond to his gentle adjustments. Watching Dr. T work was amazing, it seemed like he was working miracles with his hands and that he was the adult having the most fun……I wanted to be just like him.”

More about Dr. Charles Foster

Dr. Foster hails from the heartland and was born and raised in La Harpe, IL.   He enjoyed growing up on the farm and attending school in a small town.  After graduating high school in 1976, he moved to Davenport, IA to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic.  While there, he served as class president during his entire post-graduate program and was acknowledged for clinical excellence in the college outpatient clinic.  Following graduation in 1986, with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree in hand, he served an internship at the prestigious Gonstead Clinic in Mt. Horeb, WI.  On completion of the internship, Dr. Foster moved his family to Brandon, VT to establish the first iteration of his practices, Brandon Clinic of Chiropractic.  In 2008, Dr. Foster began to expand, he added an associate and purchased a practice in Rutland and changed the name of his practices to FOSTERing WELLNESS to reflect his plans to open more offices in Vermont and create a unique brand for chiropractic healthcare in the region.  Since then, Dr. Foster has added two more clinics to the FOSTERing WELLNESS system, one in Randolph and another in Springfield for a total of 4 locations with 4 doctors.  Dr. Foster sees expanding the brand as a way to not only serve more people thru chiropractic, but as a way to help young doctors get established in practice.
