Abstract: This paper describes the successful treatment of an infant with wry neck associated with birth trauma using low force, relatively long-duration cranial adjusting, and soft-tissue techniques to the whole body with special attention to the cervical region, and parental management of home care procedures. Wry neck, or congenital muscular torticollis (CMT), has been a well – recognized condition for centuries. CMT is often associated with plagiocephaly, which has long-term adverse effects on physical and mental functions. A review of some of the literature relating to this condition is provided.
