In fact, while a halo vest does indeed provide more rigid immobilization in the upper cervical spine, it is not entirely clear that it actually increases the rate of union when compared to a hard cervical collar.

Others have theorized that Chiari-1 malformation, cervical spina bifida occulta, cervical scoliosis, Klippel-Feil deformity, atlantoaxial assimilation, atlantooccipital fusion, and basilar invagination maybe developmental variants along a spectrum of severity common to the base of the skull and upper cervical spine [6].
As a necessary compensation, the upper cervical spine must become hyperlordotic to bring the eyes and inner ears level for proprioception (Figure 4).
[19]: (1) unilateral or bilateral pain starting in the neck and radiating to the frontotemporal region, (2) pain aggravated by neck movement, (3) restricted cervical range of motion, (4) joint tenderness in at least one of the joints of the upper cervical spine ([C.sub.2]-[C.sub.3]), and (5) headache frequency of at least 1 per week over a period greater than 3 months.
Use of an intraoperative 3D C-arm for registration after the patient has been positioned and fixed in place prevents movement of the upper cervical spine without the additional invasiveness of halo application, while allowing optimal positioning rather than being limited to a neutral position.
(19) This distortion mechanism appears supported by cord deformation observed in MRI studies of the upper cervical spine. (20)
