Expert Treatment for Torticollis at Anodyne Pain and Health Group
What is Torticollis?
Torticollis, commonly known as “wry neck,” is a condition in which the neck muscles contract, causing the head to twist or tilt to one side. This condition can be either congenital, meaning present at birth, or acquired later in life due to various factors like muscle strain, injury, or underlying medical conditions.
The severity and duration of torticollis can vary, but it’s essential to get a proper diagnosis for effective treatment. At Anodyne Pain and Health Group, we specialize in diagnosing and treating torticollis, offering a range of therapies aimed at relieving pain and improving neck function.
What is Torticollis Caused By?
Torticollis can arise from a variety of underlying causes, making it important to properly diagnose the condition for effective treatment.
Congenital torticollis is often due to abnormal positioning in the womb or complications during childbirth, affecting the neck muscles from an early age.
Acquired torticollis, on the other hand, may be caused by factors such as muscle strain, trauma, or injury to the neck. It can also result from infections affecting the neck or upper respiratory tract, or as a side effect of certain medications.
Less commonly, underlying neurological or orthopedic conditions can contribute to the development of torticollis.
