Postural Assessment in Plagiocephaly

Postural Assessment in Plagiocephaly

Official Title

Postural Assessment in Children With Non-synostotic Plagiocephaly

Brief Summary

      The positional plagiocephaly is a condition involving craniofacial asymmetry. The purpose of
      this study is to evaluate the spine, the posture and the psychomotor state in children who
      were diagnosed with infant plagiocephaly.
    

Detailed Description

      Positional infant plagiocephaly is a clinical entity in which the shape of an infant's head
      becomes altered as the result of external forces applied to the malleable bones of the
      cranium and can occur pre- or postnatally. It is characterized by asymmetric occipital
      flattening (one side or the central part of the occiput is flattened)with ipsilateral frontal
      bossing.Viewed from above, this results in a parallelogram deformity of the head. We
      hypothesize that children who had plagiocephaly when they were infants, they have postural
      and spine implications at 3-5 years old.
