Free Torticollis help @ Ranicki Chiropractic Wellness Center, Pooler

Monday, May 12th, 2014

free Torticollis help Pooler Savannah

Torticollis or wry neck is a condition where a child’s neck is twisted, stiff, painful or sore. This condition can cause the head to tilt to one side while the chin tilts in the opposite direction. Torticollis develops due to problems with the upper spine and/or the muscles and nerves located in the neck.

Torticollis can affect infants at birth or it can develop throughout childhood and adult life. Either way, it can severely limit movement of the neck and cause a great deal of discomfort and pain.

The symptoms of torticollis with an infant or child may include:
(1) Tilted head
(2) Frequent crying and discomfort
(3) Stiff neck or limited movement of the neck
(4) Neck pain
(5) Headaches
