    Default Seeking advise from physios and chiropractors

    My 3mth old has congenital torticollis. We've been seeing a private physio and are waiting to be assessed in the public system. He was briefly assessed last week and he was flagged as bad. His ears are obviously out of line and the right side of his forehead is out of line too. I'm really open to whether it would help to take him to a chiropractor. The physio I saw advised against it, but I know there's a certain time frame in which his head develops and I really want to get this sorted sooner rather than later, and I've been recommended a local chiro. I am doing all the exercises with him, and he does seem to be improving, he is moving his head to both sides, but how do we correct the ear and forehead issues. Do they realign themselves or will he have to wear a helmet? The physios said he also has low muscle tone, so isn't holding his head up yet, though this does seem to be coming along with the exercises.
