A condition of limited neck motion where your baby holds his head tilted to one side and rotated to the opposite side. This results from shortening of the neck muscles while in utero or with poor positioning.

The risks of complications include:
○ May lead to plagiocephaly
○ May be reduced with stretching, positioning, and exercise, all of which physical therapy can provide.
○ May be related to visual deficits (pseudo-torticollis)
○ Most infants will demonstrate good results within 6 months, however treatment varies

Keep your eyes on the look out for:
○ Head tilted to the left and rotated to the right (Left side torticollis)
○ Head tilted to the right and rotated to the left (Right side torticollis)
○ Sometimes presents with head tilted and rotated to the same sides
○ Weakness of the neck muscles on the opposite side of the tightness
○ Sometimes a firm, non-tender mass may be felt in the mid portion of the tight neck muscle in young infants
○ Flattening of one part of the head (plagiocephaly)
