Torticollis  Torticollis , aka "wry neck," is a painful pulling of the head to one side, often associated with severe spasm of neck muscles. Its cause is not well understood, and relief can be challenging, even with medication. Sometimes Botox injections are tried. There are no guarantees, but I try to help any patient who is suffering. I have had good results with torticollis with a patient who had been in agony with it for months. The treatment plan must be comprehensive, flexible, and carefully designed and monitored.
