Many folks report back problems after an auto collision.
A 2002 study carried out by researchers at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine investigated the biomechanics of lumbar spine injury 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 shape that absorbs shocks and stress and at the same time allows freedom of movement.
There are dozens, perhaps hundreds, of different designs of car seats with unique forms, covers, stiffnesses and geometries. If your carseat doesn't conform to your spinal column precisely, the violent acceleration of the car seat during a wreck can cause some parts of your spinal column to shift more than other parts.
This shearing movement can pull or rip the ligaments of your spinal column, producing discomfort, irritation, scar tissue, nerve injury, and even long-term damage.
