conditions we treat

It is estimated that approximately 15 to 46% of infants develop plagiocephaly after birth, and congenital torticollis occurs in 3.9-16% of infants according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. Developmental delay, torticollis, and plagiocephaly are all proven to decrease with physical therapy and aid in decreasing probability of delay later in a child’s life.
