Doctor Recommended Neck Brace
A doctor recommended neck brace for treating neck conditions, such as Torticollis, Cervical Spondylosis, and more!
A Professional Medical Opinion…
“I have known Shane Peters now for approximately ten years. He has been my patient for just as long. When he came to me, he was suffering from severe Torticollis, which is stiffening of the neck muscles drawing the head to one side with the chin pointing (usually) toward the other side, and appeared to be a tonic state (or permanent). Various methods of treatment were tried in an effort to rectify this, but to no avail. Shane had been working on a project of making a neck brace out of stiff yet flexible tubing, and over the past year has perfected it. He has told me that he now has a patent on it and hopes to be able to market it. Shane has worn one of these braces he made for the past several months, and has been able to hold his head erect, and feel more confident.
In my observation over the past several months, he has definitely improved, has described less discomfort in his neck, and has a better outlook on life. It appears that he has a good product that can help other people with this condition, or for any condition that a good supportive neck brace would be needed. It is also adjustable so that it can fit anyone. I commend him for his work and foresight, and I recommend it.”

Why are Neck Braces Recommended by Doctors?
Cervical Disc Degeneration is a very painful disorder and also one of the most common reasons people have neck pain or a stiff neck. Unfortunately, it can present itself due to aging. As you age, the vertebrae lose strength and this can create problems with the neck disc and other vertebrae. Flexibility decreases and shock becomes difficult for the neck to absorb. This is what leads to neck pain.
Using a high quality neck brace will help to control the pain and in some cases, alleviate it altogether when worn. Keeping the neck in one position will help relieve pressure from the muscles. The risk of movement increasing the pain is eliminated, providing comfort to the neck pain patient.
A neck brace will help with the pain and provide much needed support after a surgical procedure. Non-movement will control the pressure on the neck muscles and offer comfort to the patient.
Neck collars are also prescribed for accident patients. Trauma to the neck muscles can cause pain that requires support. A neck brace is useful not only for these conditions but others as well. There are many other disorders that neck collars can help with.

What Will Optimal Neck Support Brace Do for You?
There are many benefits and many uses for any neck collar and not just Optimal Neck Support Brace. A major benefit of using this device is that it will help support the neck as well as the spinal cord and the head. Many doctors recommend them to patients who have experienced trauma, stiff neck or for realigning the spinal cord. Regardless of the use and the reason it has been prescribed by your doctor, you will feel relief from pain by using one.
A doctor may also prescribe the use of a neck cervical collar to re-align the spinal cord, after a sprain or other injury and whiplash already. When a patient experiences whiplash, damage occurs to the spinal tissue and possibly the neck muscles also. Shane’s neck brace will help you ease the pain when used for the treatment of any type of disorder of the neck and from injuries.
Individuals who have herniated discs, tumors or other neck problems will also benefit from the use of Shane’s neck brace. The use of the device is becoming more and more popular because orthotists prefer this treatment over surgery because it is non-evasive and does not cause pain but alleviates it.
Always remember that any of the neck difficulties listed cannot be diagnosed yourself. You should always see a doctor before you decide to use the device, even if it doctor recommended neck brace. Additionally, make sure you use the device when prescribed and exactly as directed to prevent other injuries and worsening of the condition.
If you have been diagnosed with any of these conditions, your doctor may recommend a neck brace, like Optimal Neck Support Brace, to help.
READY TO BE FREE FROM NECK PAIN?
I have been an Educator for people with ALS for over 30 years.
Recently, I was introduced to a neck brace cervical collar developed by Shane Peters. Knowing how terribly difficult it is for patients to support their heads and the issues with tilt, turning, drooling, weight and durability – I wanted to check this out.
How excited was I to see that the Neck Brace was just what the market is looking for.
I had a patient in California – who had almost every neck support imaginable. The patient and family was skeptic but are thrilled to have Optimal Neck Support Brace. It is waterproof and has provided the patient with comfort, still allowing him to tilt his chin, rotate his head and so light weight. I will be adding Optimal Neck Support Brace in my Education programs nationally.
