Thanks for any help

extended position or elongated position [of the cervical spine]
Explanation:
I assume it's the symptom that's being described as Streckhaltung, not the therapy? (The latter might be s.th. like traction or cervical collar.)

All my medical references are silent on the subject or do not fit into your context, but see if this is of any help and/or use:
The hyper-ability for ossification, characteristic for ankylosing spondylitis, might be beneficial when it comes to healing of a fracture in a slightly extended position. When a progressive neurological deficit is present despite optimal immobilization, operative stabilization is indicated.
www.belgianorthoweb.be/cases/uza1.htm

In 24 patients, spinal canal compromise worsened with the neck in the extended position; with the skull base and the dystopic os moving into the ventral spinal canal in the extended position. Thus, the motion dynamics varied with flexion and extension in each patient. Of 10 patients with extreme basilar invagination and with the axis body already within the foramen magnum, the application of skeletal traction only partially reduced the cranial settling in three patients.[36]

Haltung - position, posture
