Built with a Tilt

What is Built with a Tilt?

Have you noticed a constant tilt of your baby’s head or trouble turning to one side? This could be signs of torticollis, a tightening of the neck muscles that can limit movement. This class can assist parents with regaining motion and maintaining progress of motor milestones. In addition, education concerning head shape caused by torticollis can be addressed. This class includes hands-on parent and child interaction of the skills taught during the session. Therefore, due to the direct nature of this class, siblings will not be allowed.

Who would benefit from this class?

Any infant with good head control to pre-walking skills that prefers to look towards one side or head tilted towards one side.

What activities do you do in this class?

Therapists will be reviewing pain free stretches of the neck and body. With the new range of motion, therapists will teach how to strengthen within their new range through positioning. In addition to position, therapists will review imbalances in different gross motor skills that are common with a torticollis diagnosis.
