Common Causes Of Baby Flat Head Issues

Many babies have misshaped heads which is known as Plagiocephaly. The main causes include:
pain
Baby neck tension leading to a tendency to always hold the head to one side
pain
Tensions in baby’s delicate head following birth

Flat Head Syndrome Explained In Plain English

You may have noticed that your baby’s head is not quite symmetrical, or you just want an expert to check your baby over. Sometimes with care and time things improve, but more often the problem doesn’t seem to get better or even gets worse, with an intuitive feeling that things aren’t right. So what causes these problems?

Neck Tension (Torticollis)

If your baby lies on their back as is often recommended, if they favour looking one way rather than the other this can lead over time to uneven pressure on the back of the head and a flat spot at the back to one side.

We will gently allow baby to move their head evenly to each side, which with advice about best sleeping position and feeding will often very quickly improve the appearance.

Baby Head Moulding

Sometimes baby gets strain in their head during the birth process, whether that birth was natural or assisted. Delicate Cranial Osteopathy can feel those strains and tensions, so that the head is free to move and expand  properly. We are trained to recognise any more worrying  conditions which might lead to head shape issues, and always refer to other specialists if we need to.

Baby Digestion & Tummy Tension

Often not properly diagnosed, this can lead to baby crying, and a vague sense that everything is not right. We specialise in these collicky presentations, and will clearly explain to you our findings and recommendations, and whether Osteopathy can help your baby. We always work with your Paediatrician to make sure baby care is safe and effective.

I’ve seen several osteopaths at Fulham Osteopaths over the past 3 years. All have been excellent and assisted with pain in pregnancy, migraines and back/neck tension . Staff is also friendly and helpful. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this practice!

Wonderful, wonderful staff and excellent results. It was my first time starting an ongoing osteo programme and the progress has been huge. It's given me the freedom of my body back.

My experience with Giulia is incredibly positive. I have suffered from chronic back pain and coccydinia for over two years and have seen many different specialists during that time. Since I started working with Giulia I have seen by far the strongest improvement in my conditions. Our weekly craniosacral therapy appointments have definitely reduced the pain in my back and clearly improved my overall posture. I am really happy with the progress and will continue to see her in the future. I could not recommend her enough.

Amazing experience when we brought our newborn son. Katie was super knowledgeable and made us feel as ease straight away. She helped ease any concerns and the osteopath treatment was brilliant. We couldn’t recommend her highly enough for baby and parent.

We have been seeing Melinda with our little one since he was 3 weeks. After the first session, I noticed a significant improvement in his latch and posture. We have really appreciated the small exercises suggested which we can leverage to keep improving. Also, the little videos are a really kind extra thought, and helps us remember things we may have forgotten after the session (especially with the lack of sleep). Melinda has been a wealth of knowledge at every session, and our little one is so calm in her presence.
