How can head tilt in a child be managed?

Q: My two years old daughter slants her head towards the right. It happens in the morning and when she plays. It was noticed one and a half years back, but I thought it will correct with the time. It doesn’t pain. Her head circumference is 49 cm. What is the cause behind it?

A:Your child has head tilt or torticollis. The causes could be many, and rather than increase your anxiety by listing the causes, I suggest you meet a child neurologist who will examine the child, and if required, proceed for tests to exclude a vision, neck, or spine problem.
