Causes & Types of Back Pain

Back pain is a nuanced condition. Contributing factors may be clear, or there may be no obvious reason or precipitating event leading up to your upper, middle, or lower back pain and dysfunction. That said, a huge component of Anchorage back pain treatment is diagnosing and identifying the root causes of a person's condition, so that long-lasting relief is more likely (rather than just putting a "band-aid" on the problem). The following causes or risk factors are a few of the most common ones Dr. Michaud sees during his examination and patient interview process:

  • Poor posture
  • Repetitive movement
  • Excessively sedentary lifestyle (sitting actually causes more force in the spine than standing does!)
  • Sports injury (exercise injuries in Anchorage related to back pain often include ATV, snowmobiling, and fishing/hauling)

Even being overweight or smoking can increase a person's risk of sustaining a back injury. Specific diagnoses are vast, and it's important to realize that people of any age may be at risk for developing acute or chronic back pain. Some of the most common diagnoses Dr. Michaud identifies or confirms during examinations include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Muscle spasms and strains
  • Joint subluxations 
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Bulging or herniated discs 
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Anterolisthesis
  • Spondylosis

Common Symptoms of Back Pain

When patients come to us looking for Anchorage AK back pain relief, they're often dealing with more than "just" back pain (which is often described as dull, achy, or sometimes sharp and throbbing). Additional symptoms include:

  • Stiffness and reduced range of motion
  • Tight hip and shoulder muscles
  • Decreased tolerance to sitting, standing, or exercise

How Our Back Pain Chiropractor in Anchorage Treats This Common Health Condition

Holistic and customizable treatments are highly effective for resolving back pain, including: 

  • Chiropractic adjustments
  • Massage therapy
  • Corrective exercises
  • Acupuncture

Even lifestyle and nutritional counseling can help you manage or alleviate your back pain condition by teaching you better ways to sit during work or maintain a lean healthy bodyweight, for example.
