´Prior to coming to AktivOrtho, we visited a few centres but the results were negligible. The rehabilitation process at AktivOrtho is very different… All our previous treatments had a western approach; however we have seen better results at AktivOrtho´

Torticollis/Bent Neck

“We came to know about AktivOrtho through two patients, Ms. Renu Munjal and Ms. Anita Walia. In March 2014, I took my son (Kamran) to AktivOrtho for the first time to get his neck and its movement checked. He suffered from a medical condition known as torticollis.

Prior to coming to AktivOrtho, we visited a few centres but the results were negligable. The rehabilitation process at AktivOrtho is very different. Ms. Aditi Midha (Kamran’s physiotherapist) is just wonderful. She is patient, friendly and has really been able to help him.

Now, his head is straighter and has greater range of motion. There is an overall improvement. All our previous treatments had a western approach; however we have seen better results at AktivOrtho”.

Comments by Physiotherapist Ms. Aditi Midha

When Master Kamran Uppal was brought to AktivOrtho, his neck was slightly bent towards left. He was diagnosed with torticollis three months after his birth. In comparison to his right side, his left upper extremity was weaker and movement was slower.

We worked at strengthening his neck and arms through gentle myofascial release and used neuro developmental therapy for posture control and mild craniosacral therapy for neck alignment.

With our treatment, the patient’s neck symmetry improved and now he has increased strength in his arms, especially on the left side. Other benefits include improved postural control and balance.  His neck is in a neutral position and his performance for his age has improved”.
