Wearing the original Philadelphia collar was a life-saver for me, I’m certain of it. I was waking 3 times a night with all over body pain from hell and barely able to move. This pain fell to 3/10 overnight, I couldn’t believe it. I used to get severe pain at the base of my skull and a nagging neck and shoulder pain, on and off throughout the day, a real drag, this went too. The arrhythmias became less profuse, over time the fasciculations calmed right down, less intense, shorter duration, less often. These are just things I remember off the top of my head (it was 5+ years ago). Certainly the best treatment I have found, better than any drugs, for sure.
