Abstract

Objective: The study was emphasis an exercise rehabilitation program for children with Congenital Muscular Torticollis (CMT).

Materials and Methods: This were a case study to review the protocol of treatment of CMT and set an exercise rehabilitation program for children with CMT. The case was a typical case of CMT that was identified though a vast assessment. The objective analysis would preface a valid measurement tool that is Baseline Large Joint Arthrodial Goniometer. Then priorities the problem list that mainly focus on structural and functional dysfunction. The secondary complications also focus as state. In the study the impact of physical function of untreated CMT make a center of attention. The essential considering issues for treating CMT would address for set the rehabilitation goal easier. The rehabilitation protocol for CMT be contingent on the parents or caregiver education along with range of motion exercises which includes neck and trunk as well emphasis on symmetrical movement and overall, the environmental adaptations.

Study Period: The case was taken from CRP Savar, Dhaka, Bangladesh at the year 2015 data base.

Conclusion: The case reported that the child with CMT had showed typical physical problems, so the exercise diversity in the frequency of interventions utilized was observed. Parental education and understanding were identified as very important issues during exercise rehabilitation program. The literature search did not find any established home exercise protocol for CMT. So, exercise is varying from child to child and the exercise program also dependents upon the child’s home environment.
