Many people say they experience back problems after a motor vehicle accident. It's a common problem we see in our St Louis office.
A 2002 study conducted by scientists at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine examined the biomechanics of lumbar spine injuries from car wrecks and found that the car seat is most likely the root cause in these types of injuries.
Your spine has an innate curved structure that absorbs jolts and stress and also permits freedom of movement.
There are dozens, perhaps hundreds, of different styles of car seats with different forms, coverings, stiffnesses and geometries. If your carseat doesn't accommodate your spinal column precisely, the violent acceleration of the carseat during a wreck can cause some segments of your spinal column to shift much more than other parts.
This shearing action can stretch or tear the ligaments of your spine, producing discomfort, inflammation, scar tissue, nerve injury, and even long-term damage.
