Picture of How to Make Your Own Neck Brace
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.

This one is pretty darn simple, all you need is a towel and a piece of rope thats at least two feet long.

Those last two steps are starting to sound a bit grim when taken out of context :D

Step 4: Wrap the rope around your neck

Step 5: Tie a knot in the rope

I found it to be a huge help. I use a long piece of ribbon instead of rope but it still worked out great.

Funny, I just wrapped a sheet around my neck before this.:)
