something to learn! Emma was born with a stiff neck when she was born.
So it has a name huh? Torticollis. Okay> :) She is 9 years old now
and although her neck really isn't stiff, she tends to pull her head
down like that when I dry her hair, or when she is preparing to catch a
ball and tensing up, or getting her teeth brushed. Her head was kind of
smushed in a little on the one side but that went away in time. I
thought she would always have a misshapen head but it turns out she is
okay there. I really should get a book on Arthrogryposis but they are
so expensive! I really wonder why we didn't have to have constant
therapy on her neck like we did her other joints.
