Congenital Muscular Torticollis, or CMT, is a condition characterized by an abnormal neck position or posture in newborns. According to experts, it affects approximately 1 in every 250 infants, making it a relatively common concern among parents and healthcare professionals alike. With treatment, the condition eventually passes; however, the experience can still be troubling for both infants and parents alike, Dr. Phillips-Williams explains.

"Our guide is a comprehensive tool crafted for parents facing the challenges of CMT," explained the author. "In fact, it's more than just a guide; it's a supportive companion, empowering parents with the knowledge and confidence needed to foster their child's optimal well-being."

A significant portion of the book is dedicated to helping parents cope with the "pain points" or feelings they'll encounter on their CMT journey. From sadness and worry to stress and anxiety, the author provides strategies for recognizing these feelings and dealing with them in healthy ways.

Also in the book are several exercises and activities parents can do with their infant at home to reinforce any repositioning treatments and surgical interventions performed by physicians.

The book stresses the importance of early detection and intervention when it comes to addressing CMT. If diagnosed and treated early enough, the condition can go away in as little as six months. If left untreated, however, the condition can worsen and eventually turn into Infant Head Tilt or Flat Head Syndrome, both of which can seriously stunt a child's motor development.

"Whether it's understanding the condition, exploring treatment options, or implementing practical strategies, 'Parents' Guide to Congenital Muscular Torticollis' is a valuable resource for parents seeking to empower their child's developmental journey," said Phillips-Williams. "I invite you to join me in transforming the lives of those affected by this condition."
