We had a few patients' with Torticollis which is also called wryneck. The patient complains of moderate to severe neck pain, the neck is difficult to turn but turning one direction is easier than the other. It can be caused by trauma but 90% of the patient's I have seen over the past 25 years don't know what they did. They wake with severe neck pain. Light chiropractic manipulation, muscle work, ultrasound and light traction are very effective. We have seen dozens of patients in Roseville and know exactly what to do. With chiropractic treatment the condition will resolve in about 3 days. Without chiropractic treatment, 2-3 weeks. Give us a call at our Roseville office. (916) 784-2727.
The Symptoms of torticollis are essentially a very stiff neck, so stiff that it is extremely difficult to turn to one side. Turning the other direction is usually easier due to the cause of the stiffness (rotated and restricted motion in the vertebra of the neck). Ice, chiropractic treatment and light massage can help to gently restore motion and reduce the pain and muscle spasms associated with this painful neck condition.
