It is estimated that 1 in 5 children have some degree of head shape asymmetry, or plagiocephaly, also known as "flat head syndrome". Plagiocephaly can be the result of a baby's in utero positioning, torticollis (tightening of the neck muscle), or even prolonged periods of time spent on their backs while sleeping and in carriers. Repositioning techniques and "Tummy Time" can help.
If you notice flat areas on your baby's head, we suggest that you talk with your pediatrician. If repositioning and "Tummy Time" does not help, your pediatrician or a craniofacial specialist can determine if your baby will benefit from a STARband cranial remolding headband.
Falk Prosthetics and Orthotics Inc. specializes in providing cranial remolding headband treatment for infants with plagiocephaly.
