Community Health and Education Services announces the release of a new guide to Congenital Muscular Torticollis (CMT).

Now available in ebook form, the CMT guide was authored by healthcare professional Dr. Phillips-Williams to equip parents to make informed decisions about their child's long-term health. If left untreated, Torticollis can lead to developmental issues such as flat head syndrome and failure to reach milestones in terms of motor skills.

Babies with CMT are born with a tightness in the sternocleidomastoid muscle located in the neck. This muscular contracture causes the head to tilt to one side with the face and chin rotating to the opposite side with flexion. The condition is most commonly diagnosed during the neonatal period or in infancy.

The ebook covers several topics including common medical interventions and surgical options while exploring the connection between CMT and Sandifer Syndrome - a type of movement disorder that causes arching of the neck, back, and head. It is often associated with gastroesophageal reflux in children.

The author guides readers through the various specific forms of torticollis including ocular and benign paroxysmal presentations of the condition. This chapter helps parents and guardians recognize and respond effectively to various CMT manifestations.

The guide explores the role of orthotics in correcting the muscular deformities associated with CMT. Using specially designed braces, clinicians can correct the maladapted muscles by gently stretching the head and neck back into an optimal position.

Readers are also given a series of torticollis exercises that they can try at home, giving parents and children the tools to help themselves.

A spokesperson says, β€œIn essence, this book is a roadmap, providing clarity and direction for parents navigating the intricate landscape of CMT. Whether it's understanding the condition, exploring treatment options, or implementing practical strategies, "Navigating Torticollis" is a valuable resource for parents seeking to empower their child's developmental journey.”
