MAEVE LAWLOR

KINESIOLOGIST

Special delivery! 💌 We received the cutest package this week from our dear friend Carolina of @fisioterapiabebe in São Paulo, Brazil! 🇧🇷✨

Carolina works with babies to treat infant head shape asymmetry and torticollis, and her clinic also uses #SnugKap cranial bands for their treatment programs! 👶 🙌

These beautiful handmade dolls are given as a gift when a baby is finished treatment and has 'graduated' their program 🥳 Each one has a SnugKap and a little @fisioterapiabebe logo on their shirt. How adorable are they?! We are blown away by how creative and beautiful they are 😍

You might notice the date on the letter: Carolina originally sent this package to us in February of this year, but due to Covid-19, it was not able to be delivered and was returned all the way back to Brazil. We are so lucky that it finally arrived at our clinic here in New Westminster Canada, over nine months later 🥰 🇨🇦 What a journey these little dolls have had!

Thank you Carolina and @fisioterapiabebe for the beautiful dolls! We are so happy to be working with you, too 💕

Happy Friday 🙌 We are kicking off the long weekend on a high note: sharing some incredible treatment progress with you!

We always recommend that families with head shape concerns for their babies come in for an assessment sooner rather than later 👶 💕 The prime window to start treatment is 4-6 months of age, and this photo is a perfect example of why!

This baby came to our Edmonton clinic when she was 4 months old for an initial assessment. Her CVAI and CR values put her in the severe range for Brachycephaly, and the moderate-severe range for Plagiocephaly. She was fit for her #SnugKap in early September, and after just FOUR weeks of treatment, her head shape has already corrected to normal ranges for both Brachycephaly and Plagiocephaly!! 🥳 Her CVAI went from 7.0% to 1.7%, and her CR went from 92.7% to 84.4%. We are absolutely thrilled with her progress so far 👏👏

The reason why we prefer to treat infant head shape asymmetry at this age is that in order for treatment to be successful, rapid head growth, sutures of the skull being open ("soft spots"), and consistent orthosis wearing are necessary. Babies at 4 months old have incredible growth potential to harness, so correction typically happens faster than with older infants! (This is not to say that we cannot achieve amazing results after this age - we simply get the fastest and optimal results during this timeframe.)

Do you have questions about your baby's head shape? 👶 We would love to hear from you! We are happy to give you more info about our practice and treatment programs 😊 You can call us at 1-844-944-3237, or visit our website (Link in bio!) to learn more.

Have a great long weekend everyone! 🍂🥧✨
