Within the basic patterns of cranial deformities (Plagiocephaly, Brachycephaly and Scaphocephaly) there are an almost infinite number of variations of differing degree. Obviously, the simplest deformities respond better to orthopedic treatment than the more complex.
Due to the sum of two simple basic deformities. For deflection in different planes (axial, sagital and coronal). Due to deformities accompanying craniosynostosis.
Misshapen heads at birth normally sort themselves out by the time the baby is a few weeks old. If the deformity persists for longer, we should consider other causes.
