Torticollis – Spasmed and Twisted Neck

 What is torticollis?

Torticollis is when the neck is “stuck” in position that prevents a person, often a child or infant, from moving.  The neck is typically stuck in a tilted and slightly turned position, but can be stuck in many different positions.

What is done to help torticollis neck?

In the past, medical efforts were done to surgically cut the muscles.  Fortunately now chiropractors can specifically align the shifted bone in the neck without surgery.  By addressing the shifted bone, it can assist the spasms in the neck muscles.  By addressing the shifted bone in the neck (the shifted bond in the neck is called a subluxation) it can also “reset” reflexes along the neck which can greatly help the person to improve the condition of their neck.

How do you know if you have torticollis?

Torticollis is quite a dramatic experience for a patient or a family.  It is painful when your neck is stuck in the wrong position, and very scary to not be able to turn your neck.  Your local chiropractor, including us in Mississauga at Erin Mills Optimum Health, can examine your neck to determine what has happened.  Depending on what has happened, x-rays may be necessary.
