Torticollis and Plagiocephaly

Plagiocephaly (aka “flat head syndrome”) results from babies being placed on their backs for prolonged periods of time beyond just during sleep. Another common incidence of being on their backs for too long is Torticollis (aka “tight neck syndrome”). These are some techniques that parents can use at home to help round out their child’s head and make their neck feel less tight. This helps their head not only become more rounded, but also helps the child be able to achieve their motor milestones and helps facial structures to grow symmetrically as they get older.
