Stories of round heads and happy hearts

Great experience with Cranial Technologies! Our son wore two helmets for almost 5 months. Today he “graduated” and his head shape has shown so much improvement. Its pretty amazing. We are very happy with our decision of having him wear a Doc Band. The staff at Cranial Tech in Phoenix and Mesa AZ were always super friendly and helpful. Highly recommend the Doc Band and Cranial Technologies if your child has a head deformity. They will thank us when they’re older!

Andrea Tucker, Parent

Best decision we could have made for our daughter. The results were amazing and we couldn’t be happier. She will grow up and not be self conscious about her head thanks to Cranial Technologies. She wore her DOC Band for a total of 12 weeks and it has done wonders. The team in Phoenix, AZ is amazing. Thank you for everything.

Dee Olivia, Parent

My experience was amazing and life changing! As a Mom, I saw an irregularity with the shape of my child’s head when many said he would outgrow it. I pushed and succeeded….the results amazing!!! The same result would not have been achieved without Cranial Technologies. I also drove 2.5 hours one way for their professional consultations. It is LIFE changing! My favorite picture of my oldest child is in his helmet!!!

Amy Morris Burchett, Parent

They are amazing! Honest and up front about everything in the process. Got us booked quickly if we needed to come in for something and my sons head looks great. We live far but it was 100% worth the drive to get there. I tell everyone that if they were a pediatricians office we’d continue to go because we loved the staff that much. Thank you for everything!
