    My 3 month old DD has Torticollis
    mommyin2011 posted:
    Have you or anyone you know had a child that has this? Im worried that there might be long terms problems. I read some info on WebMD about it. It doesn't see too serious, but I am still worried for my little girl.

    Any info you have about it would be helpful.

    Thank you!
    Proud mommy of DS (7/31/11) and DD (7/18/12)

    As a Physical therapist i can tell you Torticollis can become a serious condition. However, with proper treatment can be corrected. Talk to you MD about getting physical therapy for little miss. They will help you with learning how to stetch her neck and hopefully correcting it. Between now and then try to get her to look to the other side using toys or talking to her from the other side. If you are bottle feeding, flip the way you are holding her when she eats. So if her head is usually craddled in your left arm switch it so it is craddled in your right. Hope this helps!

    Thank you. I am doing the stretching exercises. I have noticed that her left eye goes in. Does this also have something to do with Torticollis? Its her left side that she always turns to...I am so worried for her!

    Don't worry .Children who have tortocollis tend to use one eye more than theother .SO try to place hre crib mobile toys on the other side so she practises more on other eye ,Close the left eye and then try to show her favouite Toy or book and see how she responds.Good luck
