ABSTRACT

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of modified motor developmental intervention on the SCM muscle thickness and the range of motion (ROM) of neck in subjects with congenital muscular torticollis. METHODS: Thirteen subjects who had congenital muscular torticollis were participated in this study and they were offered the modified motor developmental interventions for 8 weeks by pediatric physical therapist. SCM thickness of affected and non-affected side and ROM of neck rotation were collected between before and after intervention. SCM thickness was measured by using Ultrasound Unit (IU 22, Ultrasound system, Philips, Netherlands) and ROM of neck was measured by using the goniometer (Arthrodial protractor, North coast, USA). Data were represented as means ± SD. Paired t-test was used to determine the effect of interventions on the SCM muscle thickness and neck ROM. RESULTS: SCM thickness of affected side was significantly decreased after the modified motor developmental interventions and that of non-affected side was generally increased but it was not significantly difference between pre and post interventions. ROM of neck rotation and lateral flexion was significantly increased after interventions. CONCLUSION: These results suggested that the modified motor developmental interventions could improve the recovery of SCM muscle thickness and neck ROM.
