Back Pain After a Car Crash

A lot of folks say they experience back ache after an auto collision.

A 2002 paper carried out by scientists at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine examined the biomechanics of lumbar spine trauma from rear-end collisions and discovered that the car seat is in all likelihood the culprit in these types of injuries.

Your spinal column has an innate curved form that absorbs shocks and stress and at the same time permits freedom of movement.

There are dozens, perhaps hundreds, of distinct designs of car seats with different shapes, coverings, stiffnesses and geometries. If your carseat doesn't accommodate your spinal column precisely, the violent acceleration of the car seat during an impact can cause some areas of your spinal column to shift much more than other parts.

This shearing effect can stretch or tear the ligaments of your spinal column, producing pain, irritation, scar tissue, neurological injury, and even permanent damage.
