Many folks report lower back pain after an auto collision.
A 2002 study carried out by scientists at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine examined the biomechanics of lumbar spine trauma from car wrecks and found that the car seat is most likely the root cause in these types of injuries.
Your spine has an innate curved shape that absorbs shocks and stresses and at the same time allows freedom of movement.
There are dozens, possibly even hundreds, of different designs of car seats with distinctive shapes, coverings, stiffnesses and geometries. If your carseat doesn't correspond to your spine precisely, the violent acceleration of the carseat during a wreck can cause some regions of your spinal column to shift more than other parts.
This shearing movement can pull or tear the ligaments of your spinal column, producing discomfort, swelling, scar tissue, neurological injury, and even long-lasting damage.
