A cervical collar is a brace that is shaped like a doughnut. The collar is designed to cover the entire neck and rest under your chin. Typically, cervical collars are secured by hook-and-loop fasteners. Once in place, a cervical collar limits how much you can turn your head. Some collars are made out of flexible foam, while others are crafted out of a combination of foam and plastic and metal. The addition of metal or plastic makes the cervical collar more rigid, allowing it to restrict movement of the neck more.
For shoulder pain and injuries, your medical provider may recommend a shoulder support. There are two main types: double and single. A double shoulder support covers both shoulders and the upper back. A single support fits like a sling, extending from one shoulder diagonally across the body. Some shoulder supports are designed to hold hot or cold packs for temperature therapy.
Athletic or kinesiology tape, known as KT Tape, may be used to support the shoulders during physical activity. When applied properly, athletic or kinesiology tape helps to provide light support for the shoulder joint. The tape is slightly elastic, making it possible for you to still move while wearing it. If you opt for athletic or kinesiology tape, ask your medical provider to show you how to properly apply it.
Best Neck Brace
Before purchasing a neck brace or shoulder brace, be sure to consult your medical provider. He or she can discuss your injury or condition with you and recommend the best type of brace for your needs. A health care professional can also let you know when you should wear your brace and how long you can expect to need one. Make sure to read the product descriptions carefully when shopping for shoulder and neck braces. Most products are designed to fit people of a certain size. You should measure yourself before you complete your order to ensure that you select a brace that will fit comfortably.
