Effective treatment of crooked skull
Does my baby have a crooked skull?
The typical signs of a crooked skull are seen from above that the ears are staggered or one side of the forehead is more protruding. It can be changed so that your baby gets a symmetrical head shape. It typically takes 2-3 hours of treatments.
Get rid of crooked skull
We treat your baby's nervous system with the method, P-DTR which consists of gentle pressure and a deep tendon reflex triggered under the foot or on the stomach. It is a gentle form of treatment without twisting or jerking.
We help your baby get rid of crooked skull - quickly and efficiently.
The skull consists of plates that, during pregnancy, begin to grow together and have sutures in between. The fontanella in the neck grows together when baby is approx. 2 months old, while the fontanella at the top is head grows together when baby is between 7-18 months. This flexibility in the skull, helps get head through the birth canal during childbirth. As the baby grow, the crooked skull will become more apparent.
Causes of crooked skull
A crooked skull can also be seen as a crooked head, an uneven head or an asymmetrical head or face depending on where you are looking from. The reason for this is that in the sutures between the skull plates, tensions can arise, which can help to create a skewed skull. If the baby has been sitting crooked during pregnancy, stuck in the pelvis during birth or has been taken with a suction cup, this may have created an imbalance in the sutures. If the baby has been sitting with its head against your tailbone during birth, it may have pressed on one side of the skull so that there is a flat forehead, ear that is offset or a flat back head on one side. Many doctors believe that this corrects itself. We do not think so. In our optics, the imbalances will always be there until they are addressed. We have treated many adults, with the same imbalances that we find in babies.
The natural movements of the skull
In babies and adults, the plates will move minimally when we e.g. breathing. If there is tension in between the plates, the movement will be reduced and the body will have to compensate. Depending on where the tension is in the skull, it can cause problems with digestion, headaches, weak abdominal muscles, etc.
What do we get?
A typical set of treatment involves treatment of the classic problems in babies. So in addition to a more symmetrical head shape, the desire to lie on the stomach, which helps motor development, is also affected. Many parents experience a generally better movement in the body and a happier baby.
A typical Treatment session
The treatment takes place at the baby's pace and consists of gentle pressure and a deep tendon reflex typically under the foot or on the abdomen.
The treatments typically extends over 1-2 months spread over 3 hours. This allows your baby to adapt to the changes we make and you can detect what is still a problem for the next treatment.
