Why Your Child’s Neck Tilting Manners Could Be Indicative of Torticollis
If you think your child’s tendency to tilt his head to one side is a display of bad manners than a physical condition, think again. What most people think as an awkward pleading gesture could turn out to be Torticollis, a mucoskeletal disorder that causes the patient’s head to tilt to the same side as the affected muscle.
Once your child exhibit such movements frequently, take him to the pediatrician right away. The doctor would then refer you to seek assistance from a physical therapist, which would then provide the right treatment. At Advanced Physical Therapy, our resident therapist will apply personalized treatment, which includes stretching, to help strengthen the muscles in your child’s neck.
