Wry neck, also known as torticollis, is a condition in which the head and neck are twisted to one side or bent in an unnatural position. This can be caused by a variety of reasons such as poor posture, muscle strain, injury, sleeping with your head in an awkward position or nerve damage.
Symptoms of wry neck can include pain, stiffness, and limited range of motion in the neck. In some cases, it can also lead to headaches and dizziness.
Treatment for wry neck usually involves physical therapy and medications to reduce inflammation and pain.
Osteopathy is an effective treatment for this condition that helps to reduce pain and improve mobility. Through gentle manipulation of the spine and muscles, osteopaths can help to restore balance in the body and reduce tension in the affected area. Osteopathy can be used to treat wry neck in both adults and children, providing relief from pain and restoring normal movement.
