If you have concerns, discuss them with your doctor or health visitor. If your baby has been diagnosed with plagiocephaly, and re-positioning has failed, you may wish to contact us to arrange an appointment at our clinic where we will use the latest in scanning technologies to provide an objective assessment of your baby’s head.
Note: A visit to our clinic will not automatically result in a decision to have your baby fitted for a STARband™ helmet – we offer treatment in cases where repositioning has failed. Our orthotists often determine that no intervention is needed, and in some cases families may be invited back for a re-scan just to review any changes.
