The Non-Newtonian Fluid Spine

What got me thinking was, how do we add more spinal support for humans in cars and car crashes? And, what if humans needed more spine support for different activities?

Using non-newtonian fluids (or some other fluid) as the basis for a spinal cord support, if the person is moving slowly, then they are allowed to flex and flexible. But, when they encounter a sudden change, the support will become rigid-like.

I'm probably missing some facts (or a whole premise may be missing), so some more original research is required.
