Helmet Therapy

What is Deformational Plagiocephaly?

Deformational Plagiocephaly is an abnormal shape of a baby’s head caused
by external forces. The baby’s head may appear to be misshapen or asymmetrical immediately after birth, or the abnormal shape may become noticeable in the first few months of life. Parents, grandparents, and caregivers are often the first ones to
notice the unusual shape of the head and they usually bring it to the Pediatrician’s
attention during a regular visit.

Common Helmet Therapy Questions:

Flat spots (plagiocephaly) can happen for multiple reasons, sleeping position, being a twin, forcep or vacuum delivery, premie just to name a few. Each situation is unique and can be discussed with our therapist.
