A lot of people report back problems after an auto collision.
A 2002 study conducted by researchers at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine examined the biomechanics of lumbar spine injury from car wrecks and discovered that the car seat is very likely the root cause in these types of injuries.
Your spinal column has an innate curved structure that absorbs shocks and stress and also makes it possible for freedom of movement.
There are dozens, if not hundreds, of different designs of car seats with unique shapes, coverings, stiffnesses and geometries. If your carseat doesn't match your spine exactly, the violent acceleration of the carseat during a wreck can cause some areas of your spinal column to shift much more than other parts.
This shearing action can pull or rip the ligaments of your spinal column, resulting in pain, swelling, scar tissue, nerve injury, and even permanent damage.
