This randomized controlled trial evaluated the effect of physiotherapy on infants with congenital muscular torticollis using ultrasonography before and after the intervention. 61 infants participated in the study. Findings indicate that infants in the physiotherapy intervention group were more likely to have complete resolution of symptoms. Patient sex, size, volume, echogenicity of the lesion, and thickness ratio were not associated with resolution of symptoms.
