Robert Foster

Chiropractor

Robert graduated from Central Queensland University in Mackay with a Bachelor of Science (Chiropractic) and a Master of Clinical Chiropractic.

Being a local North Queenslander, Robert was born and raised in Mackay.  Prior to moving to Townsville in 2019, he provided chiropractic care for patients at a clinic in the Mackay City.

Robert has a passion for providing safe, natural and effective chiropractic care for the people of Townsville and is experienced in a variety of manual and low-force techniques such as Manual diversified, Thompson drop piece, Activator methods and Sacro-Occipital Technique (SOT).  With a thorough examination and assessment his aim is to find the underlying cause of pain and not just treat the symptoms. 

His interest in Chiropractic was sparked at a young age when as a teenager, he underwent regular chiropractic care to keep him at his best to compete in competitive junior tennis. As well as the improvements in his tennis, chiropractic care also enabled him to maintain a greater overall health and well-being and he has never looked back since.  

When not in the office, Robert likes to spend time with friends and family, play tennis, travel and participate in outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking and camping. He is the latest member to join the team here at Ansell Chiropractic and can’t wait to help people of all ages reach their full health potential.
