    What I do is a gentle massage of the neck, as once the muscle has gone into spasm, you need to re-educate it to be 'normal' again. You can gently warm up the muscles with massage.

    Yes I have managed to straighten bunnies' heads, but I can appreciate you need to be very careful.

    I think I might just be judged by some for saying that, but I've said it anyway

    I'm glad to hear that the nystagmus resolved and I hope that he responds well to all of his medication. Something you may want to consider for the future to try to help his head tilt is Acupuncture. My Vet has carried this out on several of my Rabbits over the years for a variety of conditions.

    Also, a Veterinary Physiotherapist may be useful to consult
