What is Torticollis?
Torticollis comes from the Latin words “Tortus” for twisted and “Collum” for neck. Babies with torticollis have tightness at their neck muscles and will have difficulty moving their head and looking to both sides. They can have difficulty keeping their head in midline and are often tilted to one side. Torticollis can also affect other areas of growth and development such as head shape and alignment throughout the face, shoulders, trunk, and hips. Therapy incorporates stretches and exercises in order to gain mobility and proper muscle activation needed to meet milestones, such as rolling, sitting, crawling, cruising, and walking.
