Whole Family Chiropractic – Dr. Tye Moe – Dr. Chelsey Henney – Pediatric and Family Chiropractors in Minneapolis and St Paul, MN 55116

Torticollis and Flat Head (Plagiocephaly)

Help your child turn their head freely, feel at ease, and assure optimal development.

“Jack was diagnosed with torticollis at 3 months of age causing a stiff neck and troubles feeding. We started physical therapy right away and didn’t finish the program until he was 12 months.

At around month 7 we started working with Whole Family Chiropractic and started to see improvements within the first few weeks. I would get reports from our physical therapist that she was seeing a significant improvement in my son and the only variable was his chiropractic work.

The entire experience has been special! Friendly, fast, and professional.

I personally liked the idea of working on the nervous system. It is a gentle approach that my baby thinks is some sort of playtime. We’ll be bringing future children to Dr. Tye and Dr. Chelsey as soon as they are born. Couldn’t be happier with the care they have and continue to provide!”

Torticollis: Crucial Insights Parents Deserve to Know (4.5 minutes)

With the rapid and significant rise 📈 in birth interventions and birth trauma, we see more and more cases of torticollis each and every year.

But did you know that countless cases of torticollis can be completely missed by the standard pediatrician?!

Mild to moderate cases of this common infant 👶 condition are not super easy to spot, but even the most minor challenges can show up big time later in life by altering the child’s motor milestones, 🏃‍♂️ neurological function, 🧠 and overall development. 💪

Be sure to watch this informative video 🎥 from Dr. Tye Moe as he takes us through the crucial things all parents deserve to know about torticollis. To not only understand why your kiddo has this challenge, but more importantly what you can do to help.

If your Mom or Dad gut is telling you there is more going on than your pediatrician or therapist can fully explain and address, then Neurologically-Focused Chiropractic Care is here for your baby. We’re ready to help dive deeper and find the root cause of addressing the challenges of torticollis!


Torticollis and Head Shape Webinar (18 minutes)

We know how heartbreaking it can be to bring home your new bundle of joy and it does not go how you imagined it would. 

Are your gut instincts telling you that something is not right with your little one? Have you felt dismissed by your doctor or pushed into cranial consults without other recommendations to try first?

Torticollis, cranial shape, and helmets in babies are difficult to navigate. It seems to be an increasing issue and you’ve been experiencing challenges with nursing, tension, tummy time, and screaming car seat rides for some time. You don’t understand why your little one is so stressed, tense, and uncomfortable and don’t know how you can help them! 

You’ve tried every solution you’ve heard of…tummy time, cranial pillows, stretches, putting focus items on the opposite side of their changing tables, etc., but progress has been minimal at best. 

That’s why we want to help you get the information and support you need to navigate through this difficult condition.

Parents, we understand just how hard it is to go from being so excited for your baby…to feeling overwhelmed, stressed, and at a loss for how to help them feel better.

By watching the above webinar, you’ll understand your baby more fully and how their body is trying to adapt to their stress. We’ll also discuss the benefits and differences between PT and chiropractic to help. Whether your baby’s body is keeping up or has fallen behind—we will help you to understand not only what to do to help, but how the stress inside their body is contributing to different challenges in everyday life, such as:

  • Stiff and uncomfortable posture, possibly holding their head upright after birth
  • Favoring one side and creating a flat spot
  • Stressful car rides with plenty of screaming because they don’t like the car seat
  • Ineffective tummy time sessions – either they are constantly screaming or you end up feeling horrible for keeping them in a position they do not enjoy
  • Recommendations for a cranial specialist consult from your pediatrician

If you’re feeling alone as to what is going on with your baby and are at a loss for how to help them be happier, please watch! This is a great webinar to get the answers as to WHY your baby is struggling with being comfortable and less tense, and WHAT you can do to HELP them. 

You’re not alone in this! We’re here to help.
