torticollis

 
 
 

    Torticollis is a condition that causes a baby’s head and neck to tilt or turn to one side. The cause is not known, but doctors suspect that if a baby is positioned in the uterus so that his/her head is tilted to the side, this results in some tightness in one of the two strap muscles that connect the breastbone, head, and neck, and allow the baby to turn their neck. Though the baby may look uncomfortable, this condition causes no pain for the child. However, physical therapy may be needed.
