A lot of people say they experience back problems after an auto collision.
A 2002 paper conducted by researchers at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine investigated the biomechanics of lumbar spine injury from rear-end collisions and found that the car seat is most likely the root cause in these types of injuries.
Your spinal column has an innate curved form that absorbs jolts and stress and also makes it possible for freedom of movement.
There are dozens, possibly even hundreds, of different styles of car seats with distinctive forms, covers, stiffnesses and geometries. If your car seat doesn't correspond to your spinal column precisely, the violent acceleration of the car seat during a crash can cause some areas of your spine to shift more than other parts.
This shearing motion can stretch or tear the ligaments of your spinal column, producing pain, swelling, scar tissue, neurological injury, and even long-lasting damage.
