the best torticollis treatment in Ipoh 


Torticollis (wry neck, or loxia) is one of a broader category of disorders that exhibit flexion,

extension, or twisting of muscles of the neck beyond their normal position. The Latin definition

of torticollis means "twisted neck." In torticollis, the neck tends to twist to one side, causing

head tilt. The condition can either develop slowly if you have a family history of the disorder,

or acutely from trauma, or as an adverse reaction to medications.

When the disorder occurs in people with a family history, medical professionals refer to it as

spasmodic torticollis (also called cervical dystonia). The characteristic twisting of the neck is

initially spasmodic (involuntary contractions of the neck muscles that lead to abnormal

movements and awkward posture of the head and neck) and begins between 31-50 years of

age. If the condition goes untreated, it likely will become permanent.

   Bending or twisting your neck too far can lead to acute torticollis. This condition appears

with few symptoms, although often you will appear uncomfortable and will hold your head

straight or rotated to one side. It will hurt to move your head to the opposite side, and you

will have limited range of motion. Your neck muscles on the affected side that hurts often

are tender to the touch. The doctor will check your nerve and motor function to rule out

spinal cord injury.

   Benign paroxysmal torticollis of infancy (BPTI) is a rare medical disorder in infants

characterized by recurrent episodes (or attacks) of tilting of the head to one side

What Are Torticollis Symptoms and Signs?

  • Because spasmodic torticollis is an abnormal contraction of the muscle in one side 
of the neck, people will appear with their head turned to one side. Neck muscles and those
between the neck and shoulder will be tense and tender, causing neck pain.
  • People with acute torticollis will be unwilling to turn their head to one side or may 
have their head turned slightly away from the side of discomfort.
  • Deviation of the eyes (oculogyric crisis) where the eyes involuntarily look upward 
and protrusion of the tongue (buccolingual crisis) where the tongue sticks out involuntarily
may also occur.
  • With spasmodic torticollis (cervical dystonia), there may be neck muscle spasms 
that are sustained (tonic) or jerky (clonic).
  • Other symptoms may include shoulder pain, back painheadache, neck cramps,
 muscle tightness, muscle pain, or burning sensations.
  • Attacks of benign paroxysmal torticollis in infants mayaccompany symptoms 
such as vomiting, irritability, and drowsiness.
