YouTube Video (8:44 mins)

Are you worried your baby’s head has a flat area on it? Have you noticed they always prefer to look or sleep with their head in one direction, or keep their head tilted to one side? This video series will teach you what to watch for in regards to plagiocephaly and torticollis, provide tips on how to start correcting the flat area using counterpressure, and offer suggestions on how to make tummy time easier. Chapter 2 in this series describes torticollis, which is a neck muscle imbalance commonly seen in babies, and explains the impact this condition has on head shape.  Lori Walker Krause, BSc.P.T., MCPA is a registered physiotherapist with over 17 years of experience treating infants with plagiocephaly, torticollis and a wide variety of developmental delays. Full bio is available here:

Janine Mak, offers this service right here in Canmore at Inspire Physiotherapy & Osteopathy. Janine worked at a pediatric clinic in Calgary for over 10 years and is a former colleague of Lori Walker Krause.

Anne-Marie Fafard offers manual osteopathy therapy for babies and mothers which is beneficial to treat breastfeeding challenges. For example, if baby has difficulty breastfeeding on one side, this can be due to his/her decreased ability to rotate his/her head and open his/her mouth wide enough, but it can also be due to the mother’s milk not flowing as well on that side due to restrictions or past injuries to her lung or ribs on that side, or a little bit of both.
