Hi there, yep my 3 month old has congenital tort (prob from being breech for a long time, although I had a successful Ecv where he was turned). We've seen a private physio a couple of times, and today had a group session in the public system. Feeling really down at the moment. DS favors his right side and has an obvious flat spot, he also has low muscle tone so can't hold his head up yet. His ears are now unequal and the right side of his forehead is obviously pushed out. He was without a doubt the worst baby there. I try to do all the exercises with him but he hates any type of tummy time, I made an appointment for a chiropractor but the physio didn't recommend it so don't know what to do. She said he will be a priority and hopes to make an appointment to see him within the next few weeks but I feel thats not quick enough under the timescale we have. DS has full movement of his neck but just springs back to his right every time.
ok enough about me - as you can tell I'm so pleased you have started this thread.

My dd had it when she was little - her head started to go so flat on one side because of favoring it! I was so worried but physio and Chiro really helped and she has a perfectly shaped head now! Just keep doing the exercises and persevere with it! It will get better! Highly recommend Chiro if you haven't already tried it!!

Just wondering if anyone is still out there with torticollis?
We have a case of it and I get so worried it won't correct itself. We are going to a physio and doing all our exercises as best as we can. But the tilt completely freaks me out. Not to mention his head shape. Very flat on one side.
Those mums that have been through it, did you see a Chiro as well? Why?
Did you bubs have one eye a little smaller than the other? did that correct itself?
When did you see your bubs getting better neck control?
The Ped doesn't seem to think it hurts them, but he seems to always be in pain, esp around the shoulder blades

None of my children had it but I did after my Mum birthed me a frank breech.
She did physio with me for the first year, taking me to the physio and also daily exercise to help build strength and neck control.
I never crawled but I did walk at 10 months and as far as I can remember have never had any issues since a toddler.

Thanks, good to know it sorted itself out. I think just looking at it every day, esp when he is in the pram makes me worry. He is only 4 months

Yep did Physio and Chiro! But it really seemed to improve after the Chiro - dramatically! Would definitely recommend giving it a go!! DD1 was severe to the point that her face was starting to get asymmetrical and the Chiro really helped! She look totally normal now hehe

Yes. It was noticed at 6 weeks and I got onto it pretty quickly. They think she was most likely in a head turned position in utero.
The pedriatrician manipulated her neck, and gave me exercises to do and that was it. it was sorted in over a week. She now sleeps on both sides. Her head looked a tiny bit flat on one side but now it is fine. I think because they noticed it early, I was able to sort it out.
