Plagiocephaly - Custom Made Cranial Helmets
Positional plagiocephaly, also known as flat head syndrome, is characterized by a flat spot on the back or one side of the head caused by lying on one portion of their head for too long when the head is quite soft. Changing the head position while the baby is lying down/sleeping can help reshape the head naturally.
If that is not effective then a custom helmet may be recommended. Helmets are most effective if used early while the skull has maximum growth potential. At AOD we will assess, measure and fit a helmet to aid in the reshaping of your babies head.
