Since 1992, when the “Back to Sleep” was created by the American Academy of Pediatrics, Torticollis has been on the rise. A shocking number of babies, approximately 1 in 250-300 babies develop Torticollis with or without Plagiocephally. It is a simple problem that can be fixed with easy steps. Six years ago I created this course based on years of successful treatment of infants and toddlers with Torticollis. By utilizing fine and gross motor milestones along with principles from yoga, The Feldenkrais & The Anat Baniel Method I teach therapists how to easily create environments that foster the correct head and neck positions.
We ourselves will move on the floor, exploring some fundamental infantile motor patterns that alone can mitigate the problem. We have videos of treatment and try to have live babies for demonstration. The method that I have devised is based on side of the Torticollis and the age and skill level of the child.
