A cervical spine orthosis includes a neck collar, a load bearing chest plate and a support strut coupling the neck collar to the load bearing chest plate. The support strut can be pivotally connected to the neck collar so that when necessary the entire chest plate and support strut can be moved relative to the neck collar so as to permit access to a chest area of the patient without completely removing support for the patient's head and neck.
