Some tips for wearing a collar
Even “neglected” joint problems can be cured at home! Just remember to smear it once a day.
The instructions for putting on the device are simple. Ideally, the doctor should teach you this.
- Install the latch so that the neckline is clearly under the baby’s chin.
- The tire is clasped behind (by means of flypapers).
- After putting on, check that the latch is installed correctly. The distance between the tire and the skin should be one centimeter.
- The time that a child needs to wear a collar is set by the doctor. It can be half an hour, a day or even a year.
The device should not interfere and bring discomfort. It is more correct to wear it after medical gymnastics. In addition, do not forget to monitor its cleanliness. Before putting on the collar of Shants, be sure to treat the skin of the child.
When irritation, rash and redness appear, the latch is removed and not worn until the manifestations disappear. Because of this, therapy may be delayed. But this is rare. As a rule, the product is recommended to be worn for no more than two months.
You can only remove an orthopedic product while swimming. After a course of therapy, do not rush to remove the collar. Let the child carry it for several hours for two to three days. So you can fix the result.
