Christopher Faubel, MD
Following medical school, I completed my four year Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation residency at Louisiana State University, where I also attained further Fellowship training in Pain Medicine. Today this training allows me to hold double board certifications in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) and in Pain Medicine by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
As a PM&R physician and interventional spine specialist I am able to provide the types of musculoskeletal and conservative back and neck care I was missing as a chiropractor. I find it very satisfying to help people relieve pain and get back to the activities they enjoy.
To effectively treat spine conditions, you need to find the exact source of pain and that’s where my physical medicine diagnostic knowledge, skills, and experience come into play. My mission is to get patients back to living a functional, productive and happy life. Caring “bedside” manners, referrals for appropriate physical therapy, safe medication management, and precision x-ray-guided pain injections provide a combination that has yielded tremendous results and happy patients.
Though I sincerely love helping people relieve pain and return to their lives, my personal life is of the highest importance to me. My life wouldn’t be what it is without my beautiful wife, daughter, and rescue dog, “Nacho.”
Thank you for the trust you have placed in me and I look forward to providing the care that helps you return to the life you enjoy.
