Treat cervical spondylotic disease with a cervical brace

- Dec 25, 2019-

With the changes in modern lifestyles, more and more bow-headed people, mobile phone parties, and car-driving people, the incidence of cervical spondylosis is also increasing. Some studies have shown that the incidence of cervical spondylosis has surpassed diabetes and has become a human health Great threat! But do so many cervical spondyloses require surgery? The answer is of course no! Most of the cervical spondylosis can be treated conservatively, and surgery only accounts for a small part.


When I was in the clinic, the final treatment for many patients with cervical spondylosis was a medical cervical collar fixation for three weeks. After three weeks, the outpatient review, many people were troublesome, many people did n’t understand why they did n’t prescribe the medicine but strictly followed my method. The results of the patients who performed the review were very good! So do not ignore the role of the small cervical support in the treatment of cervical spondylosis!


1. Let me talk about the role of the medical cervical collar. The main points are as follows:

Fix the cervical spine in the proper position to maintain normal physiological curvature;


Limit abnormal cervical spine movements and reduce instability;


Support the weight of the head and reduce the pressure on the cervical spine;


Reasonable wearing plays a certain cervical traction effect;


Effective external fixation significantly reduces local inflammation and nerve root edema, and effectively relieves symptoms!


2. Method for wearing a medical cervical collar

There are some considerations for cervical support applications:

Wear it strictly, don't be afraid of ugliness, don't be afraid of trouble, three days of fishing, two days of sunscreen wear will not be effective;


Choose the right type and size. I prefer the rigid foam material. It has a certain support force, is relatively secure, and the size is appropriate. If necessary, a partial lining or towel is used.


The neck support cannot be worn for a long time, otherwise, it will cause dependence and easily cause the neck muscles to be weak and atrophic.


In short, the rational application and skillful use of medical cervical braces can effectively treat cervical spondylosis, which is a sharp tool for conservative treatment of cervical spondylosis!
