Soft Cervical Collar!

I'm super new at this, so take it with a major grain of salt. Ace bandage! Cheap and (for me so far) seems to do the job. Also, putting on the chin strap first and the mask on over it helps stop it slipping off. Apologies if you already tried all that.

Me too. Seems to work.
