Help! How to help one year old with torticollis..

So my baby still has a crooked neck, I have done physical therapy but all the instructor did was give me guidance on what to do, he said to favor play to the right, and like try stretches. I just have such a hard time doing them with my baby.. I don't know what to do but it doesn't seem to be getting better...

    Ask for a new therapist. Ours spent about an hour with him weekly that included teaching me how to do the stretches. We also figured out we all feed him laying on the same side contributing to the problem. He had a remarkable improvement in 4 weeks. You would never know it happened now. Hang in there!

    Ask your pediatrician if they can recommend a chiropractor that works on children. My daughter had it and could barely move her neck to one side and developed a flat spot from sleeping with her head only on one side. The doctor was considering a helmet. I took her to a chiropractor 3x a week and now you can’t even tell there was a problem!! The chiro was very gentle and did massage and cranial sacral therapy, not the cracking and pulling you think of when you picture an adjustment.
