When an infant is born with its head turned to one side and has difficulty moving it to the other side, this is known as infant torticollis, or wry neck. Relatively common, it can happen due to positioning in the uterus, but can also result from birth trauma. Symptoms include discomfort, pain, and tight neck muscles. Many parents take their babies to a chiropractor for non-invasive treatment, to which babies respond very positively. Chiropractors do not treat their tiny patients the way they treat adults. It doesn’t take much force to adjust a baby. Chiropractors utilize a combination of gentle spinal adjustments, cranial realignment, and soft tissue therapies, which can produce quick results in many cases.

Doctors of Chiropractic (DC) are licensed and trained to diagnose and treat patients of all ages and will use a gentler type of treatment for children. DCs can also prescribe exercises designed to help children develop strong muscles, along with instruction in good nutrition, posture and sleeping habits.
