Parents share DOC Band success

“Our son wore a DOC Band in 1999 due to plagiocephaly for approximately four months. As new parents, we were terrified and we elected the DOC Band to avoid surgery. We traveled from Yuma, AZ to Phoenix, AZ on a weekly basis. After reading the recent study that came out my entire family is appalled by the findings. Our son is now 15 years old and if it were not for the DOC Band, he would not be where he is today.

He is about to complete his freshman year and is very active in wrestling and football. We are proud to say our son wore the DOC Band and it made a huge difference for him. Thank you, Cranial Technologies." – M. Duran, May 2014

What is Plagiocephaly?

 

Plagiocephaly often results from external forces applied to the soft infant skull.

There are actually three different types of misshapen heads. As causes of plagiocephaly are combined, it’s not uncommon to see heads that illustrate two of the deformities.

What is the DOC Band®?

The DOC Band, a 6-ounce device, consists of an outer plastic shell with a foam lining. Each DOC Band is different and made specifically for each child by the experienced Cranial Technologies manufacturing team in Tempe, Ariz. We only use high-quality materials to ensure that it does not cause irritation. The light weight of the DOC Band is important because it doesn’t interfere with a child’s balance or daily activities.

 
Online Head Shape Assessment

One of the most common questions that we get from parents is, "Am I really seeing what I think I'm seeing?" Our first recommendation is to schedule an evaluation with the closest DOC Band clinic. 

Of course, we know that this question can happen at night after your baby's bath and we understand that you came to our Web site for answers.  To ease your worries, we have provided an at-home assessment to help you get the best view of your baby's head shape.

Please note that these steps do not take the place of an official evaluation by a licensed medical professional.
