Only your PT can tell you exactly what you should be doing. I am

just saying that it sounds like your daughter is presenting

atypical. That is what my son was. We did the rotation stretch,

turning chin to left shoulder. And we did the sidebend stretch, left

ear to left shoulder. This is not the case for most tort babies. It

is called an atypical presentation. Alot of people have not even

heard of it. Most are just Left or Right Tort. Yes, totally

confussing, but very important to figure out. Ask your PT if your

Abra is atypical presentation. If she is a good PT, she should at

least know what atypical presentation is. I am curious what she

says. My son had difficulty turning his chin to look over his left

shoulder and also had a right head tilt (chin pointed to left

shouler, head tilted slightly right).
