HI moms! My son was diagnosed with right torticollis about 3 wks ago. He's going to PT & seems to be getting stronger & lifting his head, but now when I sit him up he just wants to lean his head to the right. Have any of you experienced this with your little ones, they get worse before they get better?

My daughter was diagnosed with right torticollis when she was 2 months old and she as well had a head tilt along with limited head rotation. She started pt at 2 months and now is 9 months and since the time she had started she no longer has limited head rotation and her head tilt is almost completely unnoticeable...the only time I can see it is when she gets tired. I know at times it feels like your being defeated especially when you work so hard to do the exercises to help but give it time and you will see results...some times our kids just have a bad week as my pt told me but keep up the good work mommy and your little one will be perfectly fine... the good thing about torticollis is the fact that it can be resolved...good luck and just keep your head up
