Craniosacral Therapy Works for Plagiocephaly

(NaturalNews) Plagiocephaly, or flat head syndrome, is a deformation of the head due to an infant's skull being flattened as a result of pressure from outside forces. Because of the "Back to Sleep" campaign (a campaign encouraging parents to lay their baby on his or her back to decrease the risk of SIDS) there has been an increase in the number of infants with plagiocephaly. Torticollis (head tilt) or incorrect womb positioning can also cause plagiocephaly. The most common treatment for plagiocephaly is having the baby wear a helmet that helps to reshape the baby's head. A more conservative and very effective option before helmeting is craniosacral therapy (CST).
