Many people say they experience back ache after an auto collision.
A 2002 study conducted by scientists at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine looked at the biomechanics of lumbar spine injury from auto collisions and discovered that the car seat is most likely the culprit in these kinds of injuries.
Your spinal column has an innate curved shape that absorbs shocks and stresses and also permits freedom of movement.
There are dozens, perhaps hundreds, of distinct designs of car seats with distinctive shapes, coverings, stiffnesses and geometries. If your car seat doesn't correspond to your spinal column exactly, the violent acceleration of the car seat during an impact can cause some portions of your spine to move more than other parts.
This shearing motion can pull or rip the ligaments of your spine, resulting in discomfort, swelling, scar tissue, neurological injury, and even irreversible damage.
