When I woke up yesterday one muscle in my neck was totally in spasm. I threatened it by saying: "If you don't stop this, I am going to rip you right out of my body!"

Alas, it did not stop, so I used a towel and a piece of rope to make a neck brace, which really helped me keep from stressing my neck further.

Instructables member superlefty (who is also my sister) was luckily in town and was able to help me demonstrate how you can make your own neck brace too.

Check out her writing at www.superlefty.com. It's awesome.

Step 1: Materials

This one is pretty darn simple, all you need is a towel and a piece of rope thats at least two feet long.
<p>Those last two steps are starting to sound a bit grim when taken out of context :D</p><p>Step 4: Wrap the rope around your neck</p><p>Step 5: Tie a knot in the rope</p>
<p>I found it to be a huge help. I use a long piece of ribbon instead of rope but it still worked out great.</p>
Funny, I just wrapped a sheet around my neck before this.:)
About a month ago I had a neck sprain and I completely forgot about this. I really wish I had remembered!
god that hurt when i tried to put it on, you need to work on it a bit
i love your sisters site now. i literally opened it by reflex into another tab, forgot about it, and then read the WHOLE thing... its about an hour later now, im wondering how she knows french, and realizing i have about 7 unread email messages... this was a very special past hour and 14 minutes. im going to wait until it has been 1hour and 15mins......... NOW
Thanks, m[r/s]. latobada! I, superlefty the person, am touched by your kind words about superlefty: the site. If you come back frequently we'll do our best to entertain you!
She looks more than happy to help =p<br/>
