Many folks report back ache after a motor vehicle accident.
A 2002 study conducted by researchers at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine investigated the biomechanics of lumbar spine trauma from rear-end collisions and discovered that the car seat is very likely the culprit in these kinds of injuries.
Your spinal column has an innate curved structure that absorbs jolts and stresses and at the same time permits freedom of movement.
There are dozens, if not hundreds, of distinct styles of car seats with different forms, covers, stiffnesses and geometries. If your car seat doesn't match your spine precisely, the violent acceleration of the car seat during a wreck can cause some segments of your spinal column to shift more than other parts.
This shearing action can stretch or rip the ligaments of your spine, triggering pain, swelling, scar tissue, neurological injury, and even long-lasting damage.
