Congenital Muscular Torticollis and Acquired Plagiocephaly Primer in Early Intervention and Pre-School
Course Objectives, Outcomes & Other Relevant Information

Estimated to occur in one infant of every 300 live births, Congenital Muscular Torticollis (CMT) is the third most common congenital musculoskeletal anomaly after congenital hip dysplasia and club foot as all three congenital deformities are associated with fetal intrauterine malposition and often co-exist with torticollis. Acquired positional Plagiocephaly may contribute to torticollis, or may result from unaddressed torticollis, and a spike in incidence has occurred ever since the American Academy of Pediatrics initiated the Safe-to-Sleep campaign launched in 1994.


Understand the postulated etiologies of torticollis and the accompanying craniofacial, ocular asymmetries and deformities and compensations which result in compensatory posture or scoliosis. Learn about the kinesiology of the sternocleidomastoid muscle, and how its two-headed origin endows it with dual extensor-flexor function during unilateral contraction, as well as why one sided shortening with or without pseudotumor causes ipsilateral tilt and contralateral rotation. Discern how this congenital muscular deformity negatively impacts on the achievement of gross motor skills especially diminished head control in anti-gravity positions, and abnormal movement such uneven weight shifting through the trunk, and asymmetrical transition movements. Absorb why delayed acquisition of gross motor milestones will result in a cascading delay in the acquisition of milestones in all other developmental domains.


Therapists will learn about classification, diagnosis, and how sequelae may result in changing of the level asymmetric placement of the relative ear and eye position, eye strain, mandibular deviation, and even facial hypoplasia if left untreated. Become familiar with the various treatments for both torticollis and acquired plagiocephaly, and why parental passive stretching is not always an effective carryover program.


This primer is a MUST READ for all early intervention and pre-school therapists who service the professional needs of the infant, toddler, and child with torticollis or developmental plagiocephaly.
