So your child has a "cute" head tilt?
A head tilt is not "normal". We have seen many children with "head tilts" over the years that range in age from a few weeks old to early teens. I have also seen adults with head tilts that are created for various reasons. Chiropractic is a wonderful treatment and has very successful outcomes. This head tilt is medically known as torticollis.
Torticollis is a painfully twisted and tilted neck. The top of the head generally tilts to one side while the chin tilts to the other side.
This condition can be congenital (present at birth) or acquired. It can also be the result of damage to the neck muscles or blood supply.
Torticollis can cause debilitating pain and difficulty performing daily tasks. Fortunately, therapies can relieve symptoms. Treatment is most successful if it’s started early. This is especially true for children.
Syptoms of torticollis can begin slowly. They may also worsen over time. The most common symptoms include:
Getting treatment quickly can keep it from becoming worse. You can improve congenital forms of torticollis by stretching the neck muscles. If started within a few months of birth, it can be very successful.
Your doctor can treat acquired torticollis according to the cause if it’s known.
Treatments for torticollis include:
Dr. Kim Maziarz Carlucci, DC
I have been a chiropractor for since 1996 but an athlete since I played baseball with the boys in the early pee wee leagues. I continued with sports throughout my high school career: softball, basketball, skiing and competitive horseback riding. In chiropractic school I was introduced to functional exercise and structural rehabilitation and continue to do this type of exercise to this day with great success.
