Auto Injury Therapy: Back Pain
A lot of folks report back pain after an auto collision.
A 2002 paper carried out by researchers at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine looked at the biomechanics of lumbar spine injury from car wrecks and discovered that the car seat is in all likelihood the culprit in these types of injuries.
Your spine has an innate curved form that absorbs shocks and stresses and at the same time enables freedom of movement.
There are dozens, perhaps hundreds, of distinct designs of car seats with unique shapes, coverings, stiffnesses and geometries. If your car seat doesn't correspond to your spine exactly, the violent acceleration of the carseat during an impact can cause some regions of your spine to shift more than other parts.
This shearing motion can pull or rip the ligaments of your spinal column, triggering discomfort, irritation, scar tissue, neurological injury, and even irreversible damage.
