Physical Therapy Program for Torticollis
Torticollis is a tightening of a child's neck muscles, which causes the head to tilt to one side and turn to the other side. This can make it difficult for the child to turn their head for visual tracking, hold their head in an upright position, and perform appropriate upper extremity movements necessary for feeding and play. It can also affect flattening of the child's face, ear, and head as well as appropriate cleaning of the neck and shoulder.

Velopharyngeal Insufficiency Treatment
Velopharyngeal closure (VPC) occurs when the soft palate (velum) and sides and back of the throat (pharynx) move toward each other and seal the air passages behind the nose during speech. This prevents air escape through the nose and allows the build-up of air pressure in the mouth for good articulation. VPI occurs when the velum and pharynx do not seal off during speech; this results in hypernasality. VPI may be due to structural problems, such as a cleft palate (not enough tissue to close off even with good movement) or certain types of dysarthria (a neurological problem resulting in muscle weakness or paralysis - not enough movement to close off). Some structural problems cannot be diagnosed by simply looking in the mouth. For example, an occult submucous cleft palate is a type of cleft in which oral examination is normal and palate even feels intact, but the muscle structure on the nasal surface of the palate is abnormal. This can only be diagnosed using nasendoscopy. Although anything is possible in medical and behavioral science, VPI does not usually occur in individuals with acquired apraxia associated with brain damage or with developmental apraxia of speech.
