Many people say they experience chronic back pain after a car wreck.
A 2002 study conducted by researchers at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine looked at the biomechanics of lumbar spine trauma from car crashes and discovered that the car seat is in all likelihood the root cause in these kinds of injuries.
Your spinal column has a natural curved form that absorbs shocks and stress and also makes it possible for freedom of movement.
There are dozens, perhaps hundreds, of distinct styles of car seats with distinctive shapes, coverings, stiffnesses and geometries. If your car seat doesn't match your spinal column precisely, the violent acceleration of the car seat during an impact can cause some parts of your spinal column to move more than other parts.
This shearing effect can pull or tear the ligaments of your spinal column, producing pain, irritation, scar tissue, nerve injury, and even irreversible damage.
