Congenital muscular torticollis occurs in infants when the neck musculature is shortened at birth or shortly thereafter.
Infants with muscular torticollis typically present with their chin pointing to one shoulder while the head tilts toward the opposite shoulder. Physical therapy for muscular torticollis can ensure that your infant can move their head properly, avoid a flat spot (plagiocephaly), and prevent permanent muscle tightening.
