Cervical collar

Soft neck brace and hard neck brace, showing person wearing soft neck brace

Cervical collars, also called neck braces, are sometimes used to support the neck for a short time. They may be soft and made from felt, foam, or rubber. Or they may be hard and made from plastic. The soft collar allows a little more movement than the hard collar.
