Torticollis

Torticollis is a condition defined by an abnormal, asymmetrical head or neck position. Many conditions may lead to the development of torticollis including: muscular fibrosis, congenital spine abnormalities, decreased blood supply to the muscle, difficulty during delivery, and positioning of the baby inside the uterus during the last few weeks of pregnancy.

It is very important to have torticollis treated to prevent a permanent shortening of the involved muscles.  In addition, therapy can help a patient avoid surgery and lead to decreased head and neck pain.

Objectives of physical therapy for torticollis:
  • Improve child’s ability to turn head left and right
  • Improve child’s ability to bring chin to chest.
  • Improve child’s ability to orient their head to mid-line against gravity.
  • Encourage child to lift head against gravity while lying on stomach.
  • Achieve normal weight bearing and shifting over upper extremities.
  • Encourage symmetrical use of upper extremities.
  • Allow child to experience proper weight shifting during developmental activities including sitting, rolling, creeping, and walking.
