Back Pain After an Auto Accident
A lot of folks say they experience lower back pain after a car wreck.
A 2002 paper carried out by scientists at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine looked at the biomechanics of lumbar spine injury from rear-end crashes and found that the car seat is in all likelihood the root cause in these kinds of injuries.
Your spinal column has a natural curved structure that absorbs jolts and stress and also allows freedom of movement.
There are dozens, if not hundreds, of different styles of car seats with distinctive shapes, covers, stiffnesses and geometries. If your carseat doesn't accommodate your spinal column exactly, the violent acceleration of the car seat during a crash can cause some parts of your spinal column to shift more than other parts.
This shearing motion can stretch or rip the ligaments of your spine, resulting in pain, swelling, scar tissue, nerve injury, and even long-term damage.
