Torticollis

Torticollis

Torticollis, also known as wry neck or loxia, is when a child's head becomes persistently turned to one side. It can happen in infants as a result of positioning in the womb or a traumatic birth, but can take up to 3 months to develop.

It is rarely common and most infants do not experience pain from it. Positioning can often improve from a few simple stretching exercises.
