PEDIATRIC HEAD SHAPING CLINIC
REMODELLING ORTHOSIS FOR KIDS (ROK)
WHAT IS DEFORMATIONAL PLAGIOCEPHALY (DP)?
This term is generally used to describe 3 types of positional head shape asymmetries that persist past the age of 6 weeks:
Plagiocephaly, Brachycephaly (Flat Head) and Scaphocephaly.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR
Our pediatric headshape clinics can provide information about the causes, signs and treatment strategies for managing baby head shape deformities.
HOW TO PREVENT
While not all deformational plagiocephaly cases will correct on their own, there are some efforts that can help prevent or reduce its effects.
"Our [ROKband] experience has been such a positive one! We love that this is a non-invasive option for us. The staff was absolutely so helpful and accommodating with great communication. The whole process to get our baby assessed and fitted was so fast and we love that it was self referral. Highly recommend this option!"
