Torticollis or Wry Neck in Children

#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 .

While many are simple spam or contracture of neck muscle some torticollis as shown in the picture below could harbour problems like compression of #spinalcord by #neck bones which have gone off alignment. These problems in the structure of neck bones occur at birth and are due to a developmental error in the shape of the neck vertebra.
