Introduction to cervical neck braces

Protective supportive cervical neck braces

Protective supportive cervical neck braces are used to support the cervical area of the neck due to minor injury or surgery.

Cervical neck braces are suitable for elderly people and those with high lesion fractures and also people suffering from Sherman’s Disease.

Softer cervical neck braces, also known as ‘Philadelphia Collars’, provide support to the cervical area in such a way as not to completely immobilize the neck, and are used mainly as protective braces as a result of physical activity. A softer brace is also suitable for post-surgery use. A ‘Minerva’ brace is used for moderate to severe surgical injuries.

Protective supportive cervical neck braces are available in a range of styles and sizes.
