Killeen Auto Injury Treatment: Back Pain
Many people say they experience back problems after an auto collision.
A 2002 paper carried out by scientists at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine investigated the biomechanics of lumbar spine injury from auto collisions and discovered that the car seat is most likely the culprit in these kinds of injuries.
Your spine has an innate curved form that absorbs shocks and stress and also allows freedom of movement.
There are dozens, perhaps hundreds, of distinct designs of car seats with distinctive forms, coverings, stiffnesses and geometries. If your car seat doesn't accommodate your spine exactly, the violent acceleration of the car seat during a crash can cause some regions of your spine to move much more than other parts.
This shearing motion can pull or rip the ligaments of your spine, causing pain, inflammation, scar tissue, neurological injury, and even irreversible damage.
