Spine surgeon: I think that in your case, you need to find this out from your spine surgeon. I assume that you have one who fitted you with the halo.

3-4 months: On average, a halo is used for 3-4 months. Usually a ct scan will be done to confirm that you have healed. Good luck.

Discuss with MD: The duration of bracing is highly dependent on the type of fracture. You need to discuss this with your spine surgeon who is treating you.
