My daughter kept her head always turned towards left. We discovered that there was a lump behind her ears. We met or pediatrician and she told us that she has Torticollis. She asked us to do some stretches which didn't help her. So went to chiropractor with no results. Now we are going to physio therapist. Is anyone going through the same problem>?

My four month old had the same problem. He actually had plagiocephaly (flat spot on his head) from being breech. At first we were told he would need a helmet to correct it, but we got a second opinion from pedi neurosurgeon who simply suggested physical therapy since he also had torticollis. He would not even look at us or toys on his one side. He started physical therapy at about 9 weeks old and just finished. He his head is perfectly fine now as is his neck. We took him three times a week and did all of the exercises the therapist told us to at home. He cried during therapy sometimes but it was worth it because now he has full range of motion to his neck and does now scream the entire time he was on his stomach like he did previously.
just made sure you find a pedi therapist...good luck!!
