Growing up in a family full of chiropractors, Amanda F. Sams realized at a young age that she would join the family business. She began working as a Chiropractic Assistant under her father, Dr. Grant Foster, at age 18. After completing pre-chiropractic requirements, she obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. She then transferred to the LACC Southern California University of Health Sciences SCU. During her final year, she took on an internship at the Whittier Health Center. Dr. Amanda then returned to North Park Chiropractic, completing a preceptorship under Dr. Foster’s guidance. Dr. Amanda believes that learning is a life-long pursuit and continues to regularly attend seminars, classes, and public speaking events to ensure every one of her patients receives the best possible care.

An established office in the San Diego area, North Park Chiropractic was built and founded in 1952 by Dr. Amanda’s grandfather. She is in the third generation of Foster family doctors – her father is also a chiropractor who will soon be retiring – and Dr. Amanda knew she wanted to continue the family legacy by the time she was in third grade. Her sister, Dr. Brooke, works at the practice as well.

Located at 4380 Felton Street in San Diego, CA, North Park Chiropractic offers exceptional patient care for spine and neck issues. Dr. Amanda and the other specialized professionals at North Park Chiropractic treat neck pain, lower back pain, and sciatica pain. Using an arsenal of treatment approaches, they practice TMD, TMJ, adjustments, realignments, athletic rehabilitation, muscle therapy, and much more to get their patients back to enjoying their day-to-day life. Dr. Amanda is an advocate of proper nutrition and exercise as a baseline for health, and works with her patients to transform their spinal pain and increase health awareness for their whole bodies.

In order to stay up to date in her field of expertise, Dr. Amanda is associated with the California Chiropractic Association, San Diego County Chiropractic Society, and the Alumni Association of Los Angeles College of Chiropractic. Awards and recognitions for her acclaimed work include America’s Best Chiropractors (2018), The Leading Physicians of the World – Top Chiropractor (2018), and Find a Top Doc – Top Doctor (2018).
