A lot of folks say they experience back pain after a car wreck.
A 2002 paper conducted by researchers at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine looked at the biomechanics of lumbar spine trauma from car wrecks and discovered that the car seat is most likely the culprit in these kinds of injuries.
Your spinal column has a natural curved form that absorbs jolts and stress and also permits freedom of movement.
There are dozens, perhaps hundreds, of different designs of car seats with distinctive forms, covers, stiffnesses and geometries. If your carseat doesn't accommodate your spinal column precisely, the violent acceleration of the carseat during a wreck can cause some parts of your spine to shift much more than other parts.
This shearing action can stretch or rip the ligaments of your spinal column, causing discomfort, swelling, scar tissue, nerve injury, and even long-lasting damage.
