It can be heartbreaking to watch your child slowed down by an orthopedic condition, whether it’s a broken bone, playground injury or complicated birth defect. Moore’s pediatric surgeons and therapists understand how these conditions affect growing infants, children and adolescents very differently than adults, and are dedicated wholly to treating children based on their unique needs. Our team is led by surgeons who are fellowship trained sub-specialists and are on call 24-7. Our pediatric rehab facility is the only one in Columbia that treats both children (0–8 years) and youth (9–17 years). And with equipment that is specially designed for children. With our focus on family-centered care, we’re here to help return your child, and your family, to a normal life.

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.
You may have wondered why as far back as you can recall you have never had anything wrong with your feet and all of a sudden you are plagued with painful feet or feet that no longer look like ones you were born with. Others may have always suffered with painful feet their whole lives or had a deformity that was painless. Why is this? In reality, the answer is quite complex and often not obvious to the untrained eye.
