Torticollis in a newborn child is a disease of the muscles and spine, in which the baby’s head is constantly tilted to the side. It appears due to abnormal development of muscles in the cervical region. Outwardly, the torticollis looks as if the baby laid his head on his shoulder. The disease must be treated immediately after its diagnosis. The longer the treatment of torticollis in a newborn is delayed, the more difficult and longer it will be necessary to eliminate it.
