Acquired Torticollis was an existing Victorian Statewide CPG that has been revised then reviewed by interstate CPG Committee members. It will be considered for PIC endorsement on 18 June.
- If torticollis occurs in setting of trauma, manage as Cervical Spine Assessment
- If the child has signs of fever, infection or abnormal neurology, appropriate imaging should be performed to establish a cause
- Most children will have a muscular torticollis and can be managed with simple analgesia
