*What is Torticollis?
Congenital muscular torticollis (CMT) is a tilting and/or turning of a baby’s neck to one side as a result of a muscle strain to the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) muscle that runs along the side of the neck from your clavicle to the back of your ear. When this muscle becomes tight or weakened, your baby’s head tilts to one side and/or turns to the opposite side. CMT is seen in approximately one in 250 babies.
Torticollis can cause or worsen plagiocephaly and requires separate physical therapy treatment.
*What is Plagiocephaly
Plagiocephaly (play-jee-oh-sef-uh-lee) can usually be identified by flattening on one side of the back of the head, and one eye or ear may appear higher than the other.
-Forehead protrudes slightly on one side
-Back of the head flattened on one side
-Sometimes referred to as a parallelogram shape because it looks like one side of the baby’s head has been pushed forward
-Eyes and ears may be misaligned.
