Soft Cervical Collar 


Soft Cervical Collar
The soft cervical collar is constructed of foam rubber and covered with a stockinette material.  Normally, the closure is achieved with Velcro.  Depending on the patient’s pathology and body structure, your physician and/or orthotist will determine the proper height of the collar.

 

When worn, the soft cervical collar is a reminder to keep your head and neck in a restricted position.  It is the mildest design of cervical immobilization.
