Need a Neck Brace for Spinal Muscular Atrophy?

Spinal Muscular Atrophy is one of the symptoms that causes severe weakness to the neck muscles. A Spinal Muscular Atrophy Neck Brace will help prevent further injury to the neck. Damage is caused by radiation fibrosis, muscle degeneration and other conditions. Also, it can result from an increase in muscle tone of the neck flexion muscles. Austere cases, can result in a chin on chest deformity can inhibit the ability to look straight ahead.

Generally, this is not a fixed condition and can be corrected by lying on the back, having someone passively range the head back for a few minutes or by using various head support devices. Regularly it is seen isolated from a myelopathy involving the spinal cord or myopathy in the elderly and can result from severe degenerative disease of the cervical spine.

Occasionally It’s called the isolated neck extensor myopathy (pathology of the muscles) when seen in absence of a general neuromuscular disorder. Furthermore, dropped head syndrome can bring degenerative changes or cause changes in the cervical spine and possibly result in myelopathy. Dropped head syndrome can increase the risk of falls due to the ineptitude of not being able to see clearly when walking, therefore, head support can be an integral part of management, increasing quality of life

Sleep on Your Back

It is recommended to sleep on your back unless instructed to sleep in another position by your physician.

Use a Firm Mattress

A soft mattress that is too soft may not offer the most optimal neck and spinal support.

Make Sure Your Neck Brace Fits Properly

Wearing an incorrect size won’t offer the right support to help keep your neck in a neutral position.

Use a Single Supportive Pillow

Sleeping on extra pillows can bend and put more pressure on your neck.

Learn the Log Roll Technique

If done correctly, the Log Roll Technique is a helpful method that teaches you how to gently roll in and out of bed without stressing your neck.

“I have only had this neck brace for a few days, but I have found it to be comfortable enough to wear for an extended period of time AND rigid enough to actually prevent poor positioning of the neck and head. Making adjustments for fit and comfort is easy, in terms of both tightness around the neck and the amount of support the brace provides.“

“I am a senior citizen. I have cervical vertebrae deterioration resulting in a weak neck with serious neck pain. At my age I am afraid to risk the possible side effects of neck surgery. I found the Optimal neck brace on the internet. I’ve worn this brace for a year, day and night (yes, even during sleep) and absolutely love it. After a few days you’ll hardly know it’s there except for the comfort it affords. This brace is cool, lightweight and non-restrictive. I feel undressed without it. I wear it even when doing neck exercises. Unlike similar devices it ‘s not unattractive. It supports my head but doesn’t weaken the neck muscles. I made several colored covers for it by cutting the top and bottom out of tube socks. The bulky, ugly, hot brace that Medicare provides went in the trash. Shane Peters is a genius for inventing this device! That’s my story and I’ll stick to it!.“


“I bought this for my father, who has dropped head syndrome. It’s by far the best neck brace for him (and we’ve tried a lot!). It provides air circulation, and is very comfortable. Other neck braces are designed to just stabilize the neck/head, which caused a lot of pressure on my father’s jaw. Shanes Neck Brace is comfortable, supportive, and easy to use. We had to request longer tubes to adjust the brace to the right height, and Shane replied immediately and shipped them out right away. Great customer service and great product.“
