Neck Collar Brace: Soft Cervical Collar for Neck Pain

Do I need a neck brace?

The purpose of a neck brace, commonly know as a cervical collar, is to support your neck and spinal cord.  Also to limit the movement of your neck and head. They’re typically meant for short-term use while you recover from an injury, surgery or pain.

Some conditions that may require the use of a cervical collar include the following:

  • Whiplash and trauma. If you’ve been in a car accident or sustained some other kind of injury, like a fall, a cervical collar may protect your neck and prevent further injury.
  • Neck surgery. A cervical collar helps to prevent injury after surgery by limiting rotation, as well as side-to-side and back and forth movements.
  • Nerve compression. Cervical collars are occasionally used to reduce pressure on the nerves in the neck.
  • Cervical spondylosis. A cervical collar may offer temporary relief from pain caused by cervical spondylosis — an age-related condition that’s caused by wear and tear of cartilage and bones in the neck.
  • General neck pain or stiffness. A cervical collar may help to take some strain off your neck muscles

What types of cervical collars are available?

Cervical collars come in soft and hard varieties.

Soft collars are usually made from materials such as felt, foam, or rubber. They fit snugly around your neck and sit below your jaw. Some doctors may prescribe them for temporary relief from moderate neck pain.

Soft collars are unlikely to help manage more serious neck injuries.

Hard collars are usually made from plexiglass or plastic. They restrict head rotation and side-to-side movement more than softer collars. They often have a chin support to allow the muscles in your neck to relax.

Hard neck braces are often prescribed for severe neck pain, spinal fractures, and trauma injuries.
