Whiplash Therapy and Back Pain
A lot of folks say they experience back pain after a motor vehicle accident.
A 2002 study conducted by scientists at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine investigated the biomechanics of lumbar spine trauma from car crashes and discovered that the car seat is most likely the root cause in these kinds of injuries.
Your spine has an innate curved form that absorbs jolts and stresses and also makes it possible for freedom of movement.
There are dozens, possibly even hundreds, of different styles of car seats with different forms, coverings, stiffnesses and geometries. If your carseat doesn't correspond to your spine precisely, the violent acceleration of the car seat during a wreck can cause some areas of your spine to move more than other parts.
This shearing motion can pull or tear the ligaments of your spinal column, producing pain, swelling, scar tissue, neurological injury, and even long-lasting damage.
