Dr. Julie C. Foster. DC


Affectionately known as Dr. J, Julie is our chiropractor at Pohala Clinic and is deeply committed to caring for patients through all stages of their lives. Since graduating with honors from Cleveland Chiropractic College in 2010, Dr. J has been helping people connect back to their body and their inner voice that always knows true wellness.

The basis of chiropractic care is spinal manipulation, and Dr. J uses a wide variety of adjustment techniques to ensure the best care for patients. Techniques include manual adjusting, drop table technique, activator methods and even components of Sacro Occipital Technique.

Additionally, Dr. J uses various soft tissue techniques and rehabilitation exercises as part of the overall treatment process. Graston technique, kinesiology taping, and other myofascial work are often incorporated in treatment plans for patients taking into consideration their work, play, and life experiences.

In their spare and fun time, Dr. J sits on the boards of two Portland non-profit organizations, the Columbia River Eating Disorder Network, and the Portland Lesbian Choir (PLC) of which she is also a member. They are a sitting member of the Equity and Belonging Task Force for PLC and have a deep passion for equity work in queer community.

Most importantly, Dr J is committed to providing a treatment space that honors and serves all bodies and souls, especially those who are marginalized in our culture. This encompasses all races, genders, sexual orientations, abilities, and body sizes. Dr. J takes into consideration the intersectionality and life history that each patient brings to ensure that each visit is both healing and affirming.
