Exams and Tests

  • If the patient is transported to the emergency department with a cervical collar strapped around the neck, the emergency physician will remove the collar when appropriate.

  • In most cases, the collar will be removed without the need for x-rays if the patient meets all of the following criteria:

  • Normal level of consciousness or alertness No muscle weakness or sensation problems No evidence of intoxication with alcohol or drugs No tenderness in the back of the neck No other painful injury elsewhere on the body

  • Your collar will remain in place if the doctor determines that the patient needs x-rays of the neck.

  • The doctor will first examine the functioning of the spinal cord in order to determine if any damage is present. The following areas will probably be assessed:

  • Physical strength in both arms and legs Ability to sense the touching of the skin in different parts of the body Reflexes at the joints of the arms and legs

  • The doctor will also inspect the patient's head and neck for any external signs of trauma including bruises, cuts, and abrasions. The patient's neck will be pressed in specific areas to be sure the patient does not perceive any pain or tenderness. The patient may be asked to move their neck in a controlled way to the left, right, up, and down. Tell the doctor if neck pain, numbness, or tingling in any of the arms or legs, or any other abnormal feelings during these maneuvers is felt.

  • X-rays may be taken of the neck bones to make sure there are no fractures or signs of other serious injury. The doctor will review these x-rays and order further imaging with a CT scan or MRI if needed. If the patient's x-rays are normal, then the cervical collar will probably be removed, and should not need any further x-rays.
