Torticollis refers to unbalanced neck muscles. It frequently pulls the infant’s head into an abnormal tilt. It can be congenital (present at birth) or acquired from inadequate repositioning.
It requires intervention frequently by applying a stretch to the tight muscle. Physical therapy is often involved with treatment to correct this.
Torticollis, which is part of Flat Head Syndrome, can be prevented by adequate positioning which Tortle can accommodate.
