In brief: While there can

Be a number of associated neurologic conditions, isolated spasmodic torticollis is usually idiopathic, as we do not know the cause.
If there are other symptoms, there are many syndromes that include it, and neuro insults like brain injury or radiation treatments can also cause it. Even poor positioning in utero is speculated to be related. Best to have a thorough history to isolate that answer.
