Plagiocephaly Treatment Overview

Seeing an irregular head shape on your baby, and the thought of treating him or her with a cranial remolding orthosis (CRO), also known as a band or helmet, can be overwhelming. We are here to make things simple and to provide your family with the resources you need to make an informed decision about plagiocephaly treatment.

Hanger Clinic is a leader in treating babies with cranial asymmetry, the most common type of which is plagiocephaly, sometimes called “flat head syndrome.” We have certified orthotists who are also cranial specialists all over the United States. They follow our clinical practice guidelines for the conservative treatment of plagiocephaly, which have been published as an industry benchmark. We call this our Cranial Asymmetry Protocols (CAP) program.

Early detection and prevention is key to successful treatment. If you are concerned about your baby’s head shape, talk to your pediatrician or contact your local Hanger Clinic.
