    Somi Brace - How to get some sleep!

    Seeking advice on how to get comfortable in a supine position with a Somi brace on. The bar across the back of the head creates pressure points that are oh, so painful. Tips, tricks, and hacks for easing this pain would be welcomed.

    Thanks in advance, y'all.

    Hi not sure what a Somi brace is. I had a ACDF and wore either a hard or soft collar. I found sleeping and sitting in the recliner gave me the most relief. Good luck
