Need a Neck Brace for Torticollis?

Torticollis or dropped head syndrome is one of the symptoms that causes severe weakness to the neck muscles. A brace for  torticollis will help prevent further injury to the neck.

Torticollis, also known as neck extensor myopathy or Drop head syndrome, is a condition in which the muscles in the neck that allow a person to lift their head become weak or paralyzed. As a result, the head droops or falls backward, and the person may have difficulty holding their head in an upright position.

Drop head syndrome can be caused by a variety of factors, including nerve damage, muscle damage, and neurological disorders. It can also be a side effect of certain medications or medical procedures. In some cases, the cause of drop head syndrome is unknown.

Symptoms of torticollis may include difficulty holding the head in an upright position, neck pain, and muscle weakness. Treatment may include physical therapy, medication, and surgery.

Sleeping with a Neck Brace

If you are dealing with Dropped head syndrome, sleeping with a cervical collar can have its challenges. We have a few tips for sleeping safely with the Optimal Neck Support Brace to ensure you still get the high-quality sleep that your body needs:

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.“
