My wife who was diagnosed with PSP in 2011 is having difficulty keeping her head up. This makes it difficult for her to eat and drink without choking. She uses a straw to drink and we have not used thickeners, yet. Last summer (July 2014) we had speech therapy sessions to help her strengthen her throat & voice muscles with limited short term improvement. My question is, has anyone with similar problems tried to use a soft neck/collar brace to help their loved one support their head. I was hoping this may improve eating, drinking and maybe even speech. Any thought would be helpful.
