A large majority of children with torticollis are also diagnosed with plagiocephaly ( mis-shapen and/or asymmetrical head shape) as they always put pressure on one side of the head. Every session I will use the Skully Care app which measures the degree of skull deformation to monitor progress.
Physiotherapy intervention will include
- Passive and Active Range of Motion
- Strengthening Exercises
- Repositioning and Handling Guidelines
- Visual Exercises
- Righting Reactions/Postural Education
- Environmental Adaptations
Parents will be instructed to execute all of the above in their daily schedule of their infant. Handouts will be given out with the protocols and easy to follow instructions. I do recommend parents to take videos of the techniques.
