Product Description

Philadelphia Collar – Cervical Immobilizer

Philadelphia collar is a neck brace used to prevent head and neck movement after a spinal cord injury. It supports your neck muscles and gives your spinal cord and ligaments time to heal. A cervical collar, also known as a neck brace, is designed to stabilize and support the cervical spine in a neutral position while limiting head movement to help immobilize the cervical spine. Used by emergency personnel for traumatic neck or head injuries, it can also be utilized therapeutically to help relieve pain by realigning the spinal cord after strains, sprains or whiplash.

It is important to put on the collar correctly so your spine is lined up properly. Our team of therapists will advise you on how to fix up or you can check the information below:

  • Lie on your back with both pieces of the collar within easy reach.
  • Carefully slip the back half of the collar under your neck and slide it into position.
  • Put the top half of the collar on.
  • Tighten the straps to make sure the collar fits snugly.

Check your skin every day. Have someone else check your skin if you are not able to see it well. Your healthcare provider may recommend a gel pad if the collar irritates your skin. Gel pads help decrease the pressure on your skin.

Shower with the collar on. After your shower, lie down to remove the collar. Have someone clean your neck and chin with warm water and soap. Rinse the soap and dry your skin. Do not put lotion on your skin under the collar. Replace the collar and secure the straps.

Always lie flat if the collar needs to be opened. You or someone else should check your collar before you get out of bed. Do not allow anyone to adjust the collar unless they are trained to do it.

When should I contact my healthcare provider?

  • The collar is too tight or too loose.
  • You have back pain.
  • You have neck pain or a headache.
  • You have a red, painful, or open area of skin under the collar.
  • You have questions or concerns about your condition or care.

Philadelphia Cervical Collar is designed with a large trachea opening which makes pulse monitoring and emergency tracheotomies easy. The Tracheotomy Philadelphia Cervical Collar has anterior and posterior rigid plastic that helps limit movement. It is a lightweight two-piece design that is made of Plastazote foam, X-ray, CT, and MRI. Please see the individual size for the height of the collar.
