A neck orthosis used in a head support system 980 and a method for supporting a head of a patient having a medical condition comprises a body 100 made of a material which is flexible and stretchy, having a releasable fastener, which may be hook and loop, and shaped to cause the neck orthosis snuggly to conform to the anatomy of the patient. The head support system includes a plurality of differently shaped and stiffness support struts 822, 834, 832 & 824 which are releasably attached in a variety of positions to the neck orthosis, for example by a hook and loop system, to provide different types of support to the head of the patient. An aperture or alternative material may be incorporated in the body to relieve pressure on the larynx.
