Back Pain After Auto Injuries
Many people say they experience back problems after a motor vehicle accident, and it's a common symptom that we see in our auto injury patients here in Fargo.
A 2002 study conducted by researchers at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine investigated the biomechanics of lumbar spine trauma from car wrecks and discovered that the car seat is very likely the root cause in these kinds of injuries.
Your spine has an innate curved form that absorbs jolts and stresses and also allows freedom of movement.
There are dozens, perhaps hundreds, of different designs of car seats with different shapes, coverings, stiffnesses and geometries. If your car seat doesn't accommodate your spinal column exactly, the violent acceleration of the car seat during an impact can cause some parts of your spinal column to shift more than other parts.
This shearing movement can pull or tear the ligaments of your spinal column, triggering discomfort, swelling, scar tissue, neurological injury, and even long-term damage.
