Re: C5 /C6 disc prolapse

After my surgery in June my physical therapists suggested not wearing the soft collar. He said it works great when you have it on, but when you take it off its like a weak neck holding up a 15 pound bowling bowl and that it justs puts pressure on the spine again. I wore my collar for 2-3 weeks after surgery. I am wearing it some now at night as my neck has started bothering me and it does help me sleep better.I have also ordered a cervical therapeutic pillow that I can't wait to get.
