In brief: Several ways

The head is tilted to one side and rotated to the opposite side.
Common in newborn babies. Other causes include trauma/injury, tumor, infection, medications, arthritis, vision problems, and more. To make the diagnosis the patient may need to see a neurologist or an orthopedic surgeon. Cervical dystonia also called spastic torticollis is a neurological condition which can be treated with botox.
