Advanced Topics for the Evaluation and Treatment of Torticollis


Torticollis is identified by the posture of the head and neck from a unilateral shortening of the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) causing the head to tilt in one direction and rotate in the opposing direction. This asymmetrical positioning can directly affect the child’s early motor development, specifically vision, early hand control, and reciprocal movement. This course aims to progress the participant’s knowledge of torticollis’ impact on a child beyond cervical range of motion impairments. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
