greghouse -> Body Stretches for Torticollis (June 24, 2011 1:56:08 PM)

Hi All,
Does anyone have a good list of full body stretches aimed at reducing/eliminating torticollis?  I have learned all the neck stretching but I've heard that stretching the entire body is more effective than only stretching the neck.

Cheers!

something I ran across might be along the same vein as the full body stretches you are looking for: total motion release. The information I read had to do with addressing pelvic and trunk asymmetries initially so the neck asymmetry can "correct" itself.
Here is the post:

I don't practice in the pediatric setting but I'm curious to see if you try this and what the outcome is.

If you visit ptschoolonline.com, there is an online Continuing Ed course which has videos of stretches you can perform on Torticollis patients. That is the only course that this website sells.
