A lot of folks say they experience back problems after a motor vehicle accident.
A 2002 study conducted by researchers at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine examined the biomechanics of lumbar spine trauma from rear-end crashes and found that the car seat is most likely the culprit in these types of injuries.
Your spine has an innate curved structure that absorbs shocks and stress and also makes it possible for freedom of movement.
There are dozens, perhaps hundreds, of distinct designs of car seats with distinctive forms, covers, stiffnesses and geometries. If your carseat doesn't match your spine precisely, the violent acceleration of the carseat during a collision can cause some portions of your spinal column to move more than other parts.
This shearing movement can pull or tear the ligaments of your spine, leading to pain, swelling, scar tissue, neurological injury, and even long-lasting damage.
