Physical Therapy Focus: Resolving Torticollis by Jessica Turchin LPT ATRIC

Monday, Oct 31, 2016 by Child & Family Development

 

October is National Physical Therapy Month and we are celebrating with the APTA #choosePT

Each physical therapist on our staff of 6 will share a bit of expertise, including Jessica Turchin MPT ATRIC!

Jessica enjoys evaluating and treating infants with torticollis, in part because quick improvements with intervention are common!

Torticollis is a tightening of the sternocleidomastoid muscle (SCM) which is a large neck muscle that runs from the mastoid process (close to the ear), through the neck and down to the sternum. The SCM function is to rotate and tilt the head.  When the SCM is tight on one side, it causes the head to tilt in that direction and rotate to the opposite direction. The muscle on the opposite side becomes overstretched and weak.  

The cause of torticollis could be related to how the child was positioned in the womb, positioning following birth during sleep or resting, a secondary effect of arching the back strongly and/or if the child is not getting the necessary amount of tummy time.  

Parents noticing that their baby tends to prefer keeping their head to one side versus the other and intervening early with recommendations from a physical therapist can lead to quick and early correction of this condition.  Activities to help resolve this condition include massage, gentle stretching and exercises to strengthen the opposite side, all done in a fun, play-based manner.  

A "wait and see" approach is generally not recommended and can lead to delays in gross motor and fine motor skills, muscle imbalances in other parts of the body and flattening of the skull one the side the child prefers.

A pediatric physical therapy evaluation and treatment usually results in habilitation of this condition and return to track of typical child development.

National Physical Therapy Month #choosePT

Friday, Sep 30, 2016 by Child & Family Development

 

October is National Physical Therapy Month and we are celebrating with the APTA #choosePT

Pediatric physical therapy is not just rehabilitation of injuries or therapy for “little adults”. While it certainly includes rehabilitation from sports injuries, post-surgery, broken bones and other conditions, it more commonly addresses “habilitation” rather than “re-habilitation”. That is, we are working with children to develop gross motor skills for the first time, rather than regain skills after a loss.  This “habilitation” often occurs when there is a gross motor delay related to late crawling and late walking.  At times, a delay is present in conjunction with a medical diagnosis, such as cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, mitochondrial disorder and spina bifida, to name just a few.

Jessica Turchin, physical therapist, celebrates 6 years at C&FD

Friday, Aug 5, 2016 by Child & Family Development

 

Happy C&FD Anniversary to Jessica Turchin  

Jessica Turchin MPT ATRIC is a physical therapist at the Pineville office. She is celebrating years at Child and Family Development this month.   

She knew she wanted to work with children even before she knew she wanted to be a physical therapist, because children have a drive to succeed no matter what their circumstances.  She loves the positivity and determination that children have to obtain a goal because they don’t know that they “can’t” do something…they just find another way!  She sees her role in their life as someone to guide them along the way and show them different ways to try something until we find the best fit for them.  

A colleague shares: 

I admire Jessica's passion and drive to give the best possible care to each and every one of her clients. She is very approachable to ask questions about specific treatments, handling techniques and diagnoses.  She gladly shares her extensive knowledge on a broad spectrum of pediatric topics. You can tell her commitment to care for her families is reciprocated back to her, as everyone wanted weekly updates throughout her maternity leave J

Summer 2016 Aquatic Therapy at the Harris YMCA

Wednesday, Jun 8, 2016 by Child & Family Development

Child and Family Development continues pool-based physical therapy at the Harris YMCA!

We have offered aquatic therapy for more than 10 years and three physical therapists will be in the water this summer:

Erin (Harkins) Krueger, DPT, ATRIC
Katie Eggleston, DPT
 Jessica Turchin, LPT, ATRIC (upon her return from leave)

Pool therapy is a great complement to a physical therapy or occupational therapy intervention, in addition to regular land based therapies. 

  • The aquatic medium provides a number of unique properties that are almost impossible to replicate on land. 
  • The hydrostatic pressure of the water really helps our pediatric patients with body awareness and sensory integration.  Not to mention the undeniable aid with postural support for not only standing, but also for breathing! 
  • The buoyancy aids in off weighting the body to make coordination of activities much easier, as it can be used to lessen the strength required to perform a movement successfully.  Many people learn to walk first in the water and then on land. 
  • The confidence they have in the water is remarkable.  Imagine seeing a 7 year old motor plan and successfully walk for the first time in the water - now that 10 year old is walking independently on land! 

For the last 6 years, we have partnered with th Harris YMCA in Charlotte near South Park Mall.   The indoor pool has several features that are especially therapeutic including:

  • zero tide entrance, like walking into the ocean
  • whirlpool, with variable resistance and pressure 
  • heated water
  • floating equipment and toys

craniosacral therapy with C&FD occupational therapists and physical therapist

Tuesday, Dec 1, 2015 by Child & Family Development

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on treatment technique utilizing the bones, soft tissues, and fluids surrounding the cranium, spinal column, and sacrum, along with the fascial diaphragms in the body.  The goal of CST is to encourage the self-healing properties within the body and reduce restrictions in fascial movement and the flow of cerebrospinal fluid.  Based on an understanding of neuroscience principles, the membranes of the fascial and craniosacral systems can undergo palpable, sustained change. 

As the body changes, the flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) changes its rate, rhythm, symmetry and amplitude.  CSF is the filtrate of the arterial blood, which supplies the brain and central nervous system with nutrition, energy and a watery environment in which brain cells and organs can live and function.  

Therapeutic benefits can include:

  • Improved body alignment and function
  • Improved cranial alignment
  • Reduced pain
  • Improved digestion
  • Improved respiration
  • Movement from heightened sympathetic state to a calmer parasympathetic state
  • Increased focus
  • Improved body awareness

People with these conditions and others may benefit from CST:

  • Torticollis/ Plagiocephaly
  • Recurrent ear infections
  • Feeding difficulties
  • Colic and digestive issues
  • Poor attention
  • Reduced impulse control
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Spina Bifida
  • Pain
  • Neurodevelopmental difficulties
  • Balance and coordination disorders
  • Sensory processing disorders

Three members of the Child and Family Development team are trained in CST:

OT and PT including craniosacral therapy

Thursday, Sep 24, 2015 by Child & Family Development

Recently two occupational therapists and physical therapist from the Pineville office of Child and Family Development completed a craniosacral therapy continuing education course.   

Jessica Turchin, MPT, ATRIC, Jessica Hoffarth, MS, OTR/L and Marion Wilm, OTR/L have already incorporated this technique into their pediatric therapy work.  

Sheryl McGavin is a Charlotte-based occupational therapist whose has an expertise in this area and offers services and courses to others.  

Sheryl's website states, "craniosacral therapy (CST), and the somatoemotional process, addresses the body as well as the emotions and considers the individual with regard for his or her unique situation. CST treatment principles recognize how all parts of the body and the person are interrelated, and how structure and function affect each other. The innate intelligence of the body is respected and treatment focuses on releasing blocks, tensions or restrictions that may inhibit the body's self healing abilities. The subtle, rhythmic motion of the craniosacral system (the membranes and fluids surrounding the brain and spinal cord) is palpated to locate the origins of symptoms and light touch is used to work with the structures involved. The gentle nature of this work makes it accessible to people of all ages and almost all conditions. 

CST can be beneficial for childhood concerns, including but not limited to:

  • feeding difficulties
  • sleep issues
  • recurrent ear infections
  • colic and digestive issues
  • torticollis
  • plagiocephaly (misshapen head),
  • sensory processing issues
  • neurodevelopmental difficulties 

Our occupational therapy and physical therapy teams offer free phone consultations and screens.  Call our office to schedule one with Jessica, Jessica or Marion.

Physical Therapy for kids

Tuesday, Feb 10, 2015 by Child & Family Development

Parents should be actively involved in their child's physical therapy sessions.  Our team of 6 PTs has these ideas to make most out of pediatric therapy sessions:

  • Tell your physical therapist about significant events in your child’s medical history, even if you feel that it doesn’t pertain to this particular appointment.  For example, is there a history of seizures?  It may not seem important but it will give us information that can help to guide things that we may or may not do during treatment.
  • Let your therapist know what other specialists are involved in your child’s care.  Do they receive therapy at school?  Do they go to any special doctors?  Oftentimes we like to collaborate with other healthcare professionals in the area to ensure the best care.
  • Ask questions.  We like to hear things like “what is this obstacle course helping my child work on?” or “what are you looking for when you are working on this activity?”  Sometimes we can get a little wrapped up in what we are working on but are always more than willing to talk about what we are doing and why we are doing it.
  • Let us know if something new is going on in your child’s home life.  Sometimes we may see behaviors that are different because of something changing in school or home, and we don’t know why.  Things like home changes or even medication changes can be channeled into different behaviors.
  • Do your best to follow through on your therapist’s recommendations.  Between all of the therapists and all of the families that come to see us on a weekly basis, Child and Family Development is a great resource for contacts in the community for things that your child may benefit from.  Also, therapy is designed to be carried over at home.  You will truly see the benefits of therapy much quicker if you are able to carry over some of the work at home.  It’s all about practice, practice, practice!
  • Have fun with it!  We try our best to find ways to motivate each child in their own way.  We work hard during therapy but like to have fun while we are doing it.  If you are able to keep the same fun environment when doing therapy work at home, you will see good results!

Developmental Reflexes in 1st Year of Life: Birth to 3-4 months

Tuesday, Dec 16, 2014 by Child & Family Development

Our physical therapy team provides this summary of reflexes that begin to develop at birth and take a couple of months to fully integrate.

It describes what to do to elicit the reflex and what you should see your child do in response.

Reflex

Timeline

Description

Response

Spontaneous Stepping

Birth to 1-2 months

While supporting the infant in the standing position with your hands under their arms and around the chest and their feet touching the surface, incline the child forward and gently move them forward to accompany any stepping.

Child will make alternating, rhythmical and coordinated stepping movements.

Rooting Reflex

Birth to 3-4 months

While child is lying on back with head in the middle and hands on the chest, use finger to stroke from the corner of the mouth out towards the check, upper lip and lower lip.

Stimulation of corners of mouth will result in a directed head turning toward the stimulated side. Stimulation of upper lip causes mouth to open and head to tilt backward. Stimulation of lower lip cause mouth to open and head to tilt forward. Infant tries to suck the finger.

Sucking Reflex

Birth to 3-4 months

While child is lying on back with head in the middle and hands on chest, place a finger or nipple in infant’s mouth.

Will result in rhythmical sucking movements.

Palmar Grasp

Birth to 3-4 months

While infant is lying on back with head in middle and hands free, place your index finger into the hands of the infant from the pinky finger side and gently press the palm surface.

Infant’s fingers flex (grasp) around your index finger.

Physical Therapy helps infants with torticollis

Thursday, Dec 4, 2014 by Child & Family Development

Our physical therapy team gets great satisfaction from helping infants diagnosed with torticollis or plagiocephaly. 

Infants experience such rapid gross motor development in the first seven months of life and with just a few tips to new parents, there can be huge improvements in their overall development.

A diagnosis of torticollis means that there is a neck musculature imbalance, and the sternocleidomastoid muscle (SCM) is the muscle involved. Plagiocephaly is usually a secondary diagnosis to torticollis. It is caused by the infant resting heavily on one part of the head which leads to a flattening of the head in that area.

A helmet is usually prescribed to improve head shape, but many of the cases I have treated by conservative measures have improved head shape and a helmet is not necessary.

The SCM is the large neck muscle that runs from the mastoid process (close to the ear), all the way down to the sternum. Its function is to rotate and tilt the head. When the SCM is tight on one side it causes the head to tilt in that direction and rotate to the opposite direction. For example, if the right SCM is tight, the child's head will tilt to the right and rotate to the left. Now, there are exceptions to every rule and sometimes a child's head will tilt and rotate to the same side, but for the most part, torticollis follows the previously mentioned pattern.

The cause of the musculature imbalance could be related to how the child was positioned in the womb, positioning following birth during sleep or resting, and/or if the child is not getting the necessary amount of "tummy time." 

Most of the time, a parent or a pediatrician notice the child's head is flat on one side or on the back or notice a slight tilt of the neck/head in photographs.

The treatment for torticollis is effective. Weekly physical therapy usually takes 6-12 weeks, depending on the severity. There's also a home exercise program of daily stretching.
