Causes plagiocephaly, brachycephaly, scapocephaly and other cranial deformities

The head of a newborn baby is ¾ the size of an adult’s, whereas body length is only ¼. Control of head muscles is not attained until the third month of age.

Congenital muscular torticollis (CMT) affects a very large number of children with plagiocephaly. It is necessary to detect and treat it early.

Hence the importance of helping babies to change posture to avoid deformities attributed to positional flattening
