    Hi,

    does caroline and veronique does therapy for infant with torticollis as well? my girl is 4.5months now and is doing physio everyday but as she is getting bigger, she resisted us more and more each day thus i'm desperately looking for treatment here.

    I need therapies whom worked with infant as i had have therapies whom have not much ideal on working with infant, the crying and pain is absolutely unnecessary and i've lost alot of precious time on helping her on the recovery track previously.

    thank you
    cheers,
    haz

    My baby had very mild torticollis and a flat head and Caroline at the body group successfully worked out both when she was 7+ months old (were mild versions of both conditions though). She's was a big baby at the time of treatment, but I found that she reacted well to Caroline's technique and could sit for shorter length sessions (30 mins) done sitting in front of a video or with lots of toys.

    Hmmm... well, i guess that's the least i could help my child with for now.

    I don't want her to blame me for not doing anything about her flat head in the future.."laughs.. i guess we all been thru the teenage stages where we blame anybody for everything"

    could any of the mums whom have tried either caroline or veronique share an idea of how much is their treatment?

    thank you
    cheers,
    haz

    Hi everyone,
    I am about to adopt a nine month old baby with a flat head and I am curious to know if anyone has any results with Caroline or Veronique's ( or any other other specialist) with an older toddler. I am also curious about costs and length of time for this treatment.

    Thanks,
    coastal

    Here are a few links which might provide a wealth of info on flat head in babies known as plagiocephaly in medical terms. Unfortunately in Hong Kong noone provides Helmets for this condition :(

    headshape

    i recently had my baby treated by an osteopath at OT and P and the results were ok, but not great. i decided to use Caroline or Veronique and found that many other mums recommended Caroline because of her many years of training and experience, also Veronique is no longer in town.
    Caroline immediately spotted a crooked lower spine that made her bum crack (for lack of a better word) really crooked. Caroline explained that this had to be aligned before the head could be shaped. After 4 treatments,there is about a 75% improvement on the spine and 70% improvement on the head. I think it helped that she is only 5 months old and I didn't wait for her to "grow out of it".
