No misalignment. Odontoid fracture at C2, surgery apparently not required, just a hard collar, of the Vista/Aspen type for 6-8 weeks.

It seems that an erect posture would be best, but I sometimes want to recline in a position that most recliners offer. Is this a bad idea? With the hard collar, am I overly concerned about how much movement the fractrure will experience over the next month or two?

What about laying sideways to sleep?

Should I avoid or completely stop ALL pressure from the rear, such as lying in a fully extended recliner?
