Torticollis

Do any moms have experience with torticollis (stiftening of neck muscles on one side)?
If so, what did you do to help correct it and how long did you need to do exercises and such?
Thanks!

  • Yes, my daughter had this when she was born. She started physical therapy at 3 months old; we also did a series of home stretching exercises on a daily basis, with lots of tummy time (which she absolutely hated). The therapy and home exercises helped but it was when she became more mobile - - - sitting, crawling, climbing, walking - - - that she really straightened out. Hope this helps!
