CMT is a condition present at birth, and according to the Hospital for Special Surgery, it affects around 1 in 300 newborns. Children experience abnormal tightness or shortening of the sternocleidomastoid muscle, which causes a noticeably tilted head.

Dr. Phillips-Williams sought to create a comprehensive resource that you could use to better understand the symptoms. She understands the pain points that you may feel when you learn of the diagnosis, such as overwhelm and confusion or the challenge of incorporating therapy exercises into your daily routine. “With the book, you can discover all the answers you need for caring for your infant,” she explains. “In its 16 chapters, you’ll get practical strategies to guide you through the unique journey each child faces.”

Learn how to mitigate further issues

The resulting difficulties with head and neck movement can often cause a preference for looking in one direction. If left untreated, Dr. Phillips-Williams says that the condition may lead to developmental issues, such as flat head syndrome - or even delays in reaching certain motor milestones.

The book offers insight into the practical aspects of managing CMT, providing you with tangible tools to use as you play an active role in recovery, and insights into the role of orthotics as well as comprehensive repositioning programs.

Become a more active caregiver

Because it is important to build a nurturing environment for the child, the book also includes a dedicated section offering engaging activities that you can incorporate into your daily routines, promoting quality bonding time while supporting your child's development.

Dr. Phillips-Williams' passion for pediatric care inspired the book, which she hopes acts as a roadmap. She states: “In essence, this book provides clarity and direction. Whether it's understanding the condition, exploring treatment options, or implementing practical strategies, it’s a valuable resource if you’re looking to empower your child's developmental journey.”

It can be an incredibly stressful time when your little one is struggling, but you can rest assured the book will be a huge help.
