Neck brace


Varied types of soft and rigid neck braces (or collars) are available to manage the needs of patients with different cervical spine conditions. The type of brace prescribed is based on the diagnosis and treatment goals. Soft collars are flexible and offer the greatest range of motion, while rigid braces provide more cervical stabilization.


The term stabilization is used to refer to immobilizing the head and neck to limit or prevent motion, which also serves to support the head and reduce weight off the cervical spine.
