Hi. My name is Samantha. I have two children, Hannah will be 2 in February and Connor is 6 months, almost 7 months. We had his well child checkup today and was told he has Torticollis along with positional plagiocephaly . We go to Physical Therapy on Thursday. I am just here for some support and to see if I can learn what to expect. I hope this group can give me a little comfort. Thanks everyone!

Welcome! My son had severe torticollis that was fixed with surgery. We tried PT for 6 months and his neck wouldn't stretch out AT ALL. His head was seriously sideways! His face is still asymetrical (he's 3 1/2 now) I think his head was smashed in utero making his torticollis more severe. BTW he went to PT 2 days a week for 6 months before the surgery.

Hi Christy. So when I go for the evaluation, they should tell me how extreme his is right? This is all just so new to me and I am confused and don't really know anything about it. I did my research, but it is still very new. Im glad to hear your child had his fixed. Thanks for the info.
