Dr. Jeff Foster is a leader in interventional pain treatments, specializing in advanced treatments for low back pain, sciatica, lumbar stenosis, sacroiliac joint pain, and arthritic and nerve-related pain. In addition to traditional treatments, Dr. Foster uses leading-edge methods to provide his patients long-term therapies for their pain and disability.
Because pain is multi-factorial and individualized, effective treatments can be multi-factorial and individualized as well.
