Child Neck collar for Neck Pain
Strains to the muscles of the neck are far and away the most common source of kids’ neck pain. Its symptoms, including pain at the back of the neck and limited range of motion, might stem from a sports injury or simply sleeping in a funny position or more serious neck strains, such as whiplash.
Whiplash refers to a forceful back and forth movement of the neck, often due to a rear-end automobile accident. Sports injury (especially in contact sports), physical abuse or other trauma can also cause whiplash.
This motion of the neck can damage one’s bones, discs, ligaments, muscles, nerves or other tissues of the neck. Therefore, it is important to seek medical attention if one suspects a whiplash injury.
Common symptoms include neck pain, stiffness, and headache, though other side effects such as tingling or numbness, blurred vision, dizziness, fatigue, problems concentrating, irritability and ringing in the ears are also possible.
Treatment for this kid’s neck problem will vary on a case-by-case basis, but for many, it will involve rest, ice and heat therapy, use of muscle relaxants and eventually stretching and movement exercises to return the range of motion to the neck.
In many cases, a doctor will recommend your child wear a soft cervical neck brace/collar to support the neck. Doing so can immobilize the spine in the neutral position and ease pain and inflammation.
