Question: My baby keeps head on one side only and does not turn to other side often.
Is it alright?
Answer: If the child is holding the neck in an abnormal position or always turn at the same side so can cause the head to flatten on one side and face to appear uneven or out of line. If not treated, head tilt may lead to permanent facial deformity or unevenness and to restricted head movement.
Most cases of head tilt are associated with a condition called torticollis but sometimes a head tilt can be due to other causes such as hearing loss, misalignment of the eyes, a throat or lymph node infection,
But most common cause of head tilt is the result of injury to the muscle that connects the breastbone, head, and neck
The injury may occur during birth, but it also can occur while the baby is still in the uterus
Later the muscle contracts and causes the head to tilt to one side.
It is very important to seek such treatment early, so that the problem is corrected before it causes permanent deformity. Your pediatrician will examine your child’s neck and may perform X-rays of the area in order to identify the cause.
Once it is diagnosed that the problem is due to the torticollis that is the injury during the birth time
the doctor will give you the exercise program that how you turn the baby's neck to the opposite side
And perform these exercises several times in a day along with the heat application to the area and the massage,
Another, place the baby on his stomach upon a blanket or soft surface and putting toys in front of him. The aim is to encourage him to lift his head up and see all the action which helps strengthen his neck muscle.
If this not help that is by 1 year the baby still has weak neck muscles, you should meet orthopaedic surgeon.
