Halo brace - aftercare

Halo brace - aftercare


A Halo brace holds your child's head and neck still so the bones and ligaments can heal. Your child's head and trunk will move as one when your child is moving around. Your child can still do many activities when wearing a Halo brace.

To learn how to take care of your child's skin while the brace is in place, please see the article Halo brace.
