A lot of people say they experience back pain after an auto collision.
A 2002 paper conducted by scientists at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine examined the biomechanics of lumbar spine trauma from rear-end collisions and discovered that the car seat is very likely the root cause in these kinds of injuries.
Your spine has a natural curved form that absorbs shocks and stress and at the same time allows freedom of movement.
There are dozens, if not hundreds, of different styles of car seats with unique forms, covers, stiffnesses and geometries. If your car seat doesn't accommodate your spine precisely, the violent acceleration of the carseat during a collision can cause some parts of your spinal column to move more than other parts.
This shearing movement can stretch or tear the ligaments of your spine, triggering discomfort, inflammation, scar tissue, nerve injury, and even irreversible damage.
