Frequently Asked Questions On Cervical Collars

A neck brace or cervical collar is a medical device that is used to support a persons neck in case of traumatic head and neck injuries. These braces are used to treat chronic medical conditions.

It is always recommended to wear the neck brace all the time, even during sleep or as by the surgeon. It is necessary to wear the brace until your spine has healed or fused, which may take as short as 4 weeks or as long as 4 to 6 months.

A soft cervical collar can be worn by following the steps below:

  • Look straight such that the chin is parallel to the floor.
  • Fit the collar snugly around your neck.
  • Attach neck brace fasteners at the back of your neck.
  • Make sure that you can breathe easily.
  • If the collar feels very tight, remove it and put it on again.

Hard cervical collars are designed to be used for spine problems or injuries. These collars are intended to limit the forward and backward movement more than the soft ones. Hard collars are used to support a person''s neck right after a trauma or injury.

Soft Neck Brace is fairly flexible and is the least limiting, it can be used for minor injuries or after healing has allowed the neck injury to stabilize.
