#Torticollis or #WryNeck is a common complaint in #children.
Children will keep neck turned and/or tilted to one side. This can be a sudden occurrence especially after sore throat or upper airway infection, fall or maybe seen after difficult birth due to stretching and injury to the neck muscle (called Sternocleidomastoid .
