Cervical Collars and Neck Braces
Cervical neck braces
are used to support the neck after strains, sprains and whiplash. They are critical in stabilizing a patient's spinal cord after a traumatic injury to the head or neck. A cervical collar can also be therapeutic by realigning the spinal cord and relieving pain. Because such critical areas of the body are involved, you should always consult a doctor to see which cervical collar is right for your situation, as well as to make sure that you are wearing it correctly and for the proper length of time.
