Birth trauma. A newborn baby affected by torticollis. This condition is usually caused by a minor neck injury during birth which triggers a spasm in the neck muscles. As a result the head is rotated and tilted into an abnormal position in which it remains. The treatment for torticollis in newborn babies consists in gently stretching the muscles of the neck several times each day.
