Auto Injuries and Back Pain

Many folks say they experience back pain after an auto collision, and it's one of the most common problems we see in our Henderson clinic.

A 2002 study carried out by scientists at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine examined the biomechanics of lumbar spine injuries from auto collisions and discovered that the car seat is most likely the culprit in these types of injuries.

Your spinal column has an innate curved form that absorbs jolts and stresses and at the same time permits freedom of movement.

There are dozens, if not hundreds, of distinct styles of car seats with different shapes, coverings, stiffnesses and geometries. If your carseat doesn't accommodate your spine exactly, the violent acceleration of the car seat during a wreck can cause some regions of your spine to move more than other parts.

This shearing motion can pull or tear the ligaments of your spinal column, triggering discomfort, inflammation, scar tissue, nerve injury, and even long-term damage.
