  • If that's where they can't really turn their head to a particular side then yes my son had it when he was a baby back in 97/98. We went to Therapy twice a week for four months and it straighted out. His head was a little flat on the left side and it still is a little bit but you can't really notice it. I forgot the name for it but what you said sounds like it.

  • One of my twins had torticollis. We did stretching therapy at each diaper change and symptoms subsided within a few months. We still continued to do the exercises until he was about 14 months.
