Back Pain after an Accident

Many people say they experience back ache after an auto collision.

A 2002 study carried out by researchers at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine looked at the biomechanics of lumbar spine injuries from auto collisions and discovered that the car seat is very likely the root cause in these types of injuries.

Your spinal column has a natural curved shape that absorbs shocks and stresses and also permits freedom of movement.

There are dozens, if not hundreds, of distinct designs of car seats with different forms, covers, stiffnesses and geometries. If your carseat doesn't correspond to your spine exactly, the violent acceleration of the carseat during a collision can cause some segments of your spinal column to shift more than other parts.

This shearing motion can pull or rip the ligaments of your spinal column, resulting in discomfort, inflammation, scar tissue, neurological injury, and even long-lasting damage.
