My 2 year old daughter tends to keep her head bent to the left side and as a result her neck doesnt appear straight and her right shoulder appears to be higher than the left. I surfed the net to realize that it could be torticolis.

We even consulted 3 physicians who also diagnosed it as mild Torticolis and one suggested surgery and the other 2 said it will be fine with neck exercises at home. But to our disappointment, there hasnt been any relief. She doesnt complain of any pain as such. However am extremely worried and cant seem to decide what mode of treatment should we really follow. Am scared of surgery and not sure if there's any other alternate treatement existing that will cure her completely. Kindly advice what we should next?

Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question and for finding EmpowHER. A similar question was asked late last year. My fellow moderator, Pat, gave a great resource that may be able to provide some assistance for you: Tortocollis Information
Good luck, and let us know how you're doing.
