Physio therapy helps in treating the injuries and different types of pain can be easily treated with the help of physio therapy.

Can you tell us more about your specific Congenital Torticollis, as the information I have found said that physical therapy can help this condition in children, once it is first diagnosed. I assume you are experiencing complications due to your torticollis? (You can read more about this condition by clicking on the term above).

Since you have had surgery to correct this, I am curious to know if the surgery was successful or not? There are a few different types of this condition, with other complications (in the hips, for instance), and it depends on your specific situation and severity as to whether or not physical therapy or massage would be beneficial.

How long ago was your surgery? What have doctors said is your prognosis, and are you still suffering from the muscles in your neck being stretched severely (what other symptoms do you have, as an adult with a congenital diagnosis?). What treatments (if any) did you receive when you were 2 years of age?
