Vista Brace

I wanted to share a picture from the internet of the new Vista brace I have now. It helps SO much. Mine is adjusted differently than this one you see. This woman has a nice long neck, mine is like a turtle's head coming out of its shell, so the brace is adjusted on the absolutely shortest setting possible, and then the yellow button in the front is turned somehow which locks it into place so that only the orthotist can change the adjustment. That was the first time I'd seen something like that, like we don't have the right to change something on our own bodies! But I know better than to make adjustment anyway. I've tried and they never improve things or make the dang braces any more comfortable or fashionable!
