Definitions of Torticollis:

A symptom, not a disease, of a twisted neck. In most instances, the head is tipped toward one side and the chin rotated toward the other. The involuntary muscle contractions in the neck region of patients with torticollis can be due to congenital defects, trauma, inflammation, tumors, and neurological or other factors. - (Source - Diseases Database)

An unnatural condition in which the head leans to one side because the neck muscles on that side are contracted - (Source - WordNet 2.1)

Torticollis is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Torticollis, or a subtype of Torticollis, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.
