Kennedy, Asher and Forrest
Elizabeth and Tina first noticed that their triplets were showing signs of head shape asymmetry around 3 months old. They followed recommendations for at-home exercises, such as lots of tummy time and repositioning techniques. However, it wasn’t enough to correct their babies’ head shapes, and so they started looking into treatment with cranial bands.
A family member was already familiar with the ROKband Pediatric Headshape Clinic, having received head shape treatment for her two children at our New Westminster location. She recommended that Liz and Tina come into our clinic for more information. “She said that prices were very similar across the board, but that the team there were the best- and she was right!”
At first the family was a little nervous about introducing three little ones to a new world of living with a ROKband on their heads. But, after meeting with Jason and Nicole for their initial assessment, their minds were put at ease. They learned that most babies adjust to wearing a ROKband quite quickly, and many don’t even notice they are wearing it at all! Luckily, all three little ones were very accommodating to the whole process. “There really was no adjusting to the ROKbands. We put them on, and the kids went on with their day like nothing new (except they looked super cute with their new gear)!”
Forrest, Kennedy, and Asher each had different areas of flatness to correct, so each received a ROKband with a different opening design. It was exciting to have one family in treatment with us with three unique head shapes! Each triplet also had a different length of treatment with us. Forrest had the shortest treatment length, at just over 4 weeks. Kennedy was next, with a total treatment time of 10 weeks. Asher was the final graduate, with a treatment time of just over 16 weeks.
It was bittersweet to say goodbye to these three little ones, who were always such good sports at the clinic. But we are so proud of how far they have come, and are so pleased with the results from their ROKband programs! Here is what Liz and Tina had to say about their experience working with the ROKband Pediatric Headshape Clinic:
