Physical Therapy and Long-Term Consequences of Torticollis
Although my baby was born with Torticollis, the problem went undetected until she was 4 months old, when our pediatrician noticed her left eye was less open than the right side. He suggested we see Estelle Le Clair for physical therapy who quickly cured the most obvious manifestation of Torticollis in our daughter Sonia, who is now 4 years old. Physical therapy was highly effective in strengthening and training our daughter's neck muscles to move in both directions. In addition, Estelle encouraged a reluctant mover to roll, sit, and eventually crawl (though she much preferred scooting). All of these seemingly natural and easy movements were, in fact, quite difficult for Sonia. Now, at age 4, Sonia continues occasional physical therapy for assistance with basic activities like running, walking up and down stairs , climbing, and riding a bike. The long-term effects of Torticollis are real, but in my personal experience they can be ameliorated with physical therapy. Estelle is a miracle worker!
