Question Pulling dog - opinions needed re: Neck collars+damaging cervical spine?

I would appreciate any experiences on the most humane "device" to use, (at the end of a leash), when walking a very strong and large dog? I posted a question today on how to retrain a pullling dog, but I am also quite concerned with regards to damaging the dog's cervical spine from years of pulling and wearing a neck collar. At the moment the dog wears a collar that becmes so tight around her neck as she is pulling.....but she still seems to be pulling!! Are there any types of body harnesses that might be healthier for this type of dog to wear, to avoid future health issues concerning her neck area? If yes, are there any names, brands of any suggested products that I could receive so that I can help my neighbour and her beautiful rescued dog Jazz?
