An introduction to Plagiocephaly and Repositioning from Technology in Motion who have been providing plagiocephaly treatment since 2003. The two words Plagiocephaly and brachycephaly are used to describe an unusual head shape. Technology in Motion are regarded as the leading clinical team managing flat head syndrome.
Plagiocephaly is the word that is used to describe a diagonal asymmetry across the head shape. This word particularly describes a flattening which is to one side at the back of the head and there is often some facial asymmetry.
Brachycephaly describes a very wide head shape with a flattening across the whole back of the head. We usually see babies who have a combination of these two problems.
