This is a condition that could possibly resolve on its own over several months, or may require "help" from a specialist. I would recommend finding a pediatric chiropractor in your area.

I have two resources for you:

1) http://www.icpa4kids.com/locator/index.htm

2) http://tinyurl.com/ahxhcs

The first is a directory of pediatric chiropractors, and the second is a directory of Upper Cervical specialists. Look into each of them, and choose accordingly.

These doctors will address this issue differently than pediatricians and physical therapists, so it would be advantageous to get their perspective as well - the sooner the better.
