CONGENITAL TORTICOLLIS

What is Congenital Torticollis

The term “Congenital” refers to any condition that exists in a patient from birth. Torticollis, sometimes known colloquially as “wryneck,” refers to when a baby comes out of the womb with a tilted head. With Congenital Torticollis, a baby’s chin will angle towards a shoulder, while the top of their head tilts the opposite direction. Physicians urge for immediate treatment in order to prevent the baby from growing an uneven bone structure that will limit future range of motion in the face and skull.
