Flattening of head
Flattening of the back of the head or occiput, known as positional head deformity (PHD), is often one of the first reasons for a newborn or infant chiropractic visit. PHD is often caused from lack of upper cervical spine (upper neck) rotation. Current medical treatment for this condition is an orthotic helmet that is supposed to be worn 23 hours a day and costs on average $1935.

Instead, we use gentle chiropractic adjustments and exercises at LiveWell Chiropractic & Wellness Center to restore that function and allow your child’s head to mold appropriately. These cases take time, but we have a very high success rate of accomplishing good cranial molding and the out of pocket cost is comparatively small.
