Torticollis is most commonly seen in infants, and can be caused by trauma to the neck or spine, positioning in utero, reflux, visual dysfunction, or postural dysfunction. A child with Torticollis typically presents with head rotation or turning to one side and a head tilt to the opposite side. This is often a result of muscle tightness and can lead to a flattening, or change in head shape, called plagiocephaly. Physical Therapists use specific positioning and stretching techniques to correct Torticollis and provide educational tips to parents and caregivers.
