Goodbye Helmet

Goodbye cranial orthotic therapy and our beloved helmets. Little O is officially finished with her therapy. This has been a long, drawn out process since August 2011. After the age of 1, cranial therapy becomes less effective as the skull fuses together and growth drastically slows down. Over the last 2 months we have seen super minimal growth and minimal change. Since our last appointment 4 weeks ago, Little O's head didn't grow or change at all. Needless to say, we hit that "wall" in our therapy.

Starting at an 11 mm difference from left to right, we ended therapy with a 4 mm difference. Drastic improvement! She still has some assymetrical aspects to her face and ear missalignment, but this is something we will simply have to deal with. Or, shall I say, she will. Certain hairstyles, etc will always be important to her.

However, after all is said and done. I couldn't be happier with the results. I'm happy we selected this long process for our little one because we did see results and noticeable results. She can now go on to be our spunky, little 1-year-old and enjoy life without her helmet.
