Our journey through plagiocephaly and brachycephaly

The three reports:

Posted by mymaysa on January 6, 2009

Alright, I had a minute to scan Maysa’s reports this morning and here they are:

The first one was taken on 6/24/08 during our initial evaluation, when we were still trying to determine what she actually had and if she would benefit from helmet treatment or not.

The second one was taken on 10/13/08 back when I had doubts about how well Maysa’s passive helmet from Eastern Cranial Affiliates was working for her.  I let you be the judge, but in my opinion and looking at the report itself, the helmet didn’t do anything about keeping her head from growing on the sides.  It didn’t correct her plagio at all either.  In fact, Laura Plank from Orthomerica, explained to me that looking at both scans, both her brachy and plagio got worse.

STAR Scan June/October 2008

The third one shows how she’s progressed since she’s been in the DOC band and since we’ve done CST.  Her plagio is now within normal range at 2.1mm and her brachy has gone down from 98.2% to 93.2%.

STAR Scan October 2008/ January 2009

There you have it.  Love the DOC band and love the Starscanner a lot!
