What is a cervical collar and why is it used?
A cervical collar is a neck brace that limits the movement of your neck while providing support and some pain relief. Cervical collars are required for multiple reasons, the most common being for fracture management in the neck (broken bone). The collar is used for fracture management, they can also be used for support pre/ post-surgery. The cervical collar will encourage correct spinal alignment and aim to prevent the development of potential further problems. The cervical collar works by reducing the ability to move your neck, giving a degree of reduced mobility of your head and neck. This works by reducing the movement of bone in the neck to promote and aid healing. The collar will only limit movement in the neck, it will not eliminate it, so it must fit correctly. The cervical collar will help your neck support the weight of your head while the bone, the soft tissues and muscles in your neck heal. Following cervical spine (neck) surgery or sustaining a fracture, the collar will help keep your neck bones in line while you heal.
