This course will focus on foundational information regarding the anatomy of torticollis and its presentation in infants starting in the NICU through the first year of life. Understanding torticollis is essential to all neonatal therapists, regardless of discipline, as it affects all aspects of infant function, including motor, visual processing, sensory development, and feeding. It will look at underlying causes, different types of torticollis, anatomic involvement, and how it affects much more than just neck range of motion and head shape. This course will briefly review the Congenital Muscular Torticollis Severity Classification System and basic treatment recommendations. The course applies to all therapists working with the family-baby dyad to implement change and improvement over time.
