Torticollis is a condition in which there is a neck muscle disorder that causes the head to be leaning to one side. When experiencing torticollis the top of a person's head will tilt to one side and chin tilt ken one sis to another. If left unchecked will cause pain that also disturbs daily activities.
Torticollis can appear from birth called congenital torticollis, or appear at an older age which is also called torticollis in can or acquired torticolis, for example due to disorders of the neck muscles.
Treatment of congenital torticollis is usually done primarily in the form of stretching neck muscles. Stretching can be done passively on the patient or using a buffer to maintain certain body positions.
In addition, trotikolis caused by disorders of the muscles or spine. Treatment can be done include using a heater or massage the neck to relieve pain, do stretching exercises or use a neck brace to deal with tense muscles, and do physiotherapy.
Neck braces or cervical brace can be used as a treatment for the construction of tense muscles in torticollis. The use of this neck collar can be as a buffer or immobilization. The use of a rigid cervical brace can usually have more immobilizing effects than a semirigid. However, rigid cervical braces tend to be uncomfortable and are usually used in ways regarding the duration of use. Consideration of the type of cervical brace that will be used usually depends on how much immobilization is desired for the neck. However, torikolis is usually used cervical brace semi rigid with the appropriate usage rules. The most important thing in principle, giving cervical brace to torticolis is to relieve or stretch tense muscles.
