What is Torticollis?
Torticollis is fairly common in newborns. Boys and girls are equally likely to develop the head tilt. It can be present at birth or take up to 3 months to happen. In newborns, torticollis can happen due to the baby’s position in the womb or after a difficult childbirth. This is called infant torticollis or congenital muscular torticollis. Torticollis causes the baby to have a neck tilt and tight neck muscles. This can be corrected with physical therapy.
