A crucial part of our job is to help parents stay informed and educated regarding their healthcare provider's recommendations and treatment protocols.

This is even more important when a child is prescribed treatment for plagiocephaly, or flat head syndrome. Besides for the cost involved, there is also a stigma associated with wearing helmets. Just go out on a hot day and look around at all those bare-headed motorcyclists. No-one really enjoys their helmet.

For most parents, the strongest argument in favor of cranial remolding orthoses remains the obvious aesthetic benefits. As more is understood about this rather new deformity, though, we can come to better conclusions by weighing the associated medical benefits as well. See the following article about some new studies showing possible functional deficits associated with plagiocephaly, or flat head syndrome.
