Weekend Doctor: Infant torticollis

By Lisa Stewart, Physical Therapist, Julie A. Cole Rehab and Sports Medicine Clinic

Is your infant only looking to one side? Do they constantly tilt their head to one direction? Torticollis is a condition where the muscles on the side of your child's neck are tight, which prevents them from turning their head to both sides equally, or they tilt their head to one side more than the other. There are two types of torticollis. The first being congenital torticollis, which means present at birth. The second is called acquired torticollis, which means it occurred later in infancy or even childhood.

Letter to Ada Voters

To Ada Voters: 

A while back I called the local library to confirm the “tween waffle” night details.  I accidentally called the public library in Ada, Oklahoma instead of our Ada. Needless to say, the Okie was so confused. Quickly, I realized my mistake and said as much. However, that Oklahoman librarian stayed on the line and wanted to hear more details--More details about a regular event at the library for tweens in Ada, Ohio.  The Oklahoman said that tween waffle night sure did sound interesting and mentioned how lucky we were to have such an awesome library.  I could not have agreed any more with that stranger!
