When to use a cervical collar

Cervical collars are commonly used for neck injuries, such as whiplash. Whiplash is a soft tissue injury to the neck, and is also known as a neck sprain. It’s often a result of car accidents where the head is thrown forward suddenly, straining the muscles in the neck. After serious car accidents, victims are often placed in a neck collar for precautionary measures. If you experience head or neck pain, check with your doctor to determine the source of your symptoms before using a cervical collar.
