I have treated hundreds of babies with Torticollis and the only problem that follows if it isn't treated is postural.

Hello Debbie!
My 2 year old grandson was born with significant torticollis and wore 2 helmets. He has
been on target motor skills wise but is far behind with speech delays. He can say ma ma, dada, baby, vroom vroom (cars), yah, yum yum but that's about it. It is concerning and he is receiving weakly therapy. He understands everything and is very demonstrative and expressive to communicate. I do believe this is directly related to the torticollis. The therapist is teaching him the sign language because she thinks he will better be ale to communicate with these tools and I would highly recommend you start with your child. Praying for a good report for you! Keep us posted!
