Torticollis – what is its origin and how can it be cured?
Torticollis can be congenital or acquired. It is usually treated by means of physical therapy. An operation is necessary only in extremely serious cases. If you notice that your child tends to keep his or her head in one position, finds eating from one breast more comfortable than from the other, or sleeps with his or her head turned on one particular side, buy HeadCare™ pillow, which will instantly reduce the pressure of the surface on the child’s head and, consequently, reduce the risk of flattening. Make sure to consult a paediatrician, who should send you to an adequate specialist in case torticollis is diagnosed. In most cases, it is necessary to start a physical therapy which will improve the free rotation of the head.
