Head Shape

Since discovering that putting your baby to sleep on his or her back significantly decreases SIDS, the occurrence of deformational plagiocephaly has increased from 1 out of 300 infants to an estimated 48%.  

Being able to increase your babies range of motion and other unseen muscle tensions and conditions, such as torticollis, can significantly prevent and treat flattened heads.

It was once thought that an asymmetrical skull was solely an aesthetic problem, however research has shown that infants with flattened head syndrome may be at risk for a delay in the acquisition of certain motor skills.

Studies have shown that in most cases chiropractic treatment can help cure flat head syndrome without the need of a helmet.
