Neck Braces - Should You Be Wearing One?
I'll chime in, I wear one. My main reason is I have two discs in my neck that are fusing together from an injury (not biking related) I DH'ed for about 5 or 6 years before buying a neck brace. When I rode without it I had a couple crashes were I couldn't tuck and roll and had a side loaded crash where my head was the first to hit. The problem was I was able to take the force but it left my neck sore for a month and had to do physio regularly to get it back to form. So after a good few crashes I got a neck brace. The biggest crash I had with it was at highland this past summer full side load head first cracked helmet but my neck felt fine, did it prevent any serious injury I can't tell you that but it did prevent over extension and allowed my keep riding. As for the feeling uncomfortable I felt the same the first couple runs but adjusted to it, after I talked with my sports physio (I got lucky and deal with one that was a cyclist) and gave me insight that I was originally over extending my neck in turns and by slightly changing body position I could achieve the same effect and sight line without cranking my neck.
