Krivosheya in children, kids

Congenital muscular torticollis. This diagnosis was indicated in the discharge of my son from the hospital. In this case, the child looked completely normal. A neonatologist told me about the presence of this pathology the next morning after his birth, but she did not give any explanation about this. It is good that later a district pediatrician wrote us a referral to an orthopedist.

At the reception at the orthopedist

Already at home, carefully looking at my son, I began to notice that he was indeed increasingly inclining his head to the left. In the hospital nothing was observed. Therefore, having received the referral to a specialist, we with the child immediately went to him.

The doctor confirmed my observations. He said that the child has a certain disturbance in the work of the muscles of the neck: one of them is less developed than the other. If you run it, the consequences can be very serious.

The possible causes of this pathology included the following: the incorrect position of the child in the uterus during pregnancy (which I didn’t seem to have observed), birth trauma, cord entanglement, or other complications during pregnancy. The true reason has remained a mystery to me.

Soothed one thing: torticollis was mild, and, according to the doctor, was easily treatable. What needs to be done for this, he told me in detail, and then wrote on a piece of paper. A month later, my baby and I had to come to his check.

Our experience in treating torticollis

According to the recommendations of the orthopedic surgeon, on the same day I began to struggle with the existing pathology. Her treatment methods were very simple, so I coped well with it.

1. First of all, I had to replace the previously purchased mattress with charming hares with a new, more rigid one. I put the baby to sleep without a pillow. Under his head lay only a diaper, folded in four.

2. During the nap, I often turned the child from one side to the other. Moreover, when he was lying on his left (sore) side, I put a small roll made of a bandage under his neck. It was not necessary to do this for the healthy side of the neck.

3. Four times a day, my son and I spent about ten minutes on special gymnastics and massage. Gymnastics included turning the baby’s head to the left and right side. The child was lying flat on his back.

Massage of the diseased cervical region consisted of alternate stroking / warming. I did warming up the neck with a diaper heated with an iron.

4. When I carried my son in my arms, I always pressed him to my sick side. In my opinion, it is very important for a baby to feel mother’s warm, especially during illness.

5. The list of recommendations also indicated that for treating torticollis, a sick child needs to wear a collar around his neck during the daytime. It was necessary to make it independently of cardboard and cotton-gauze lining. This collar was supposed to help the baby keep his head straight.

But I did not do it, because it was a pity for me to wear such a collar on my son. Once upon a time, my mother had to go to this, and he gave her a lot of inconvenience.

After a couple of weeks of classes, improvements were noticeable, my baby’s head gradually leveled off.

At the second appointment, the doctor praised us: there was no more torticollis. But in order to prevent advised to continue to engage in orthopedic massage and gymnastics.

We continued the classes, but we did it less often. When the son grew up a bit, we added swimming with a special circle on the neck to the number of preventive exercises. This occupation became his favorite.

More with crooked hair, we have not encountered. But, as far as I know, she can arise at any age, so I continue to monitor the posture and the position of my son’s head.
