Chronic atlantoaxial rotatory fixation correction by cervical traction, manipulation, and bracing.


Atlantoaxial rotatory subluxation is a well-known cause of childhood torticollis. The rotatory displacement may occur spontaneously or may be associated with trauma, upper respiratory tract infections, or congenital abnormalities of the cervical spine. Unrecognized chronic dislocations can be successfully treated by cervical traction and bracing.
