So your pediatrician recommended physical therapy, now what? A lot of thoughts are probably running through your head right now including “what does physical therapy for a child even look like?” The answer is….it depends on the child, however the general layout is the same.
Torticollis is a muscular condition in babies in which the sternocleidomastoid muscle is tight on one side of the neck. As a result, the babies’ heads will be tilted towards and rotated away from the tight side. Torticollis can be present at birth (congenital) or occur later in infancy (acquired).
