Picture Gallery Assessment, handling and treatment


Time spent in prone position when awake is very important to build up head control, muscular strength/endurance, to prevent skull asymmetry and for motor development.

Stimulate rotation to the right side in right sided torticollis.

To carry the infant with the affected side down give some stretching to the sternocleidomastoideus muscle. On the picture above right sided torticollis.

If skull asymmetry is present the infant can sleep in side position with a "baby sleep" that prevent the infant to fall over to prone position when sleeping.

Stimulate rotation to the left for left sided torticollis.
