Yes, but not for the reasons you are thinking.

I had a 4WD drive over my head a few years back, CT scan showed no damage, but my neck muscles were certainly tweaked and the pain just wouldn't go away.

Finally had the brilliant idea of using an MX neck collar - those are just foam and fabric intended to reduce compression impacts on landing. That took the weight of my helmet on the commute and on weekend rides. (1)

Worked brilliantly within a month the nagging pain was gone. I've only just stopped wearing it (3 years later).

1) Why did I keep riding the bike ?, because commuting by car or public transport was worse, at least the bike had decent suspension.
