Plagiocephaly, also known as "Flat head Syndrome", is a condition characterised by a flattening on one side of the back of the head. It may also involve bulging of the forehead, fullness of the cheek and ear misalignment on the same side as the flattening.

The London Orthotic Consultancy has extensive experience in the treatment of babies with varying degrees of Positional Plagiocephaly (Flat head Syndrome). All our clinicians are state registered. We offer a Free, No Obligation initial assessment. Our objective is to provide parents with understandable information about their baby’s Plagiocephaly and the treatment options available.

All babies that have completed the LOCband treatment have achieved measurable improvements to their head shape regardless of their age or severity of Plagiocephaly.
