Hello, my fiance fractured his C7, in a rollover accident and seems to be very very lucky as he has no defecits at this time. The neurosurgeon we saw says he more then likely will not need surgery, and that everything is in alignment and will heal on its own. He has to wear a reverse halo, (CTO vest by vista/aspen)for 3-4 months. I'm concerned about him having pain and issues later on down the road. Is there anyone out there who has had a similar injury??? Thanks!
