    Default Plagiocephaly treatment in Perth

    Hello,

    My family will be moving from the US to Perth very soon and I am trying to find a place that treats plagiocephaly in Perth. The only thing I have found online is Ortho Kids in Melbourne and we are trying to avoid the extra expense of traveling back and forth from Perth to Melbourne. Also, any suggestions on a good pediatrician is appreciated. My son is almost six months and is on Neocate formula for MSPI. We will be living in Beeliar, specifically.

    Thanks in advance! I am sure I will be on here asking questions quiet often until we get settled.

    Default Plagiocephaly treatment in Perth

    I'm not familia with your son's condition but Princess Margaret Hospital for children may be a good place to get in contact with to begin with. Good luck with the move

    Default Plagiocephaly treatment in Perth

    I'm not sure but someone who I think will is Dr Scott (can't remember surname sorry!) at Mt Hawthorn Chiropractic. He does a lot of paediatric work and has a lot of contacts in Perth. I don't have their number on me but google can help

    Default Plagiocephaly Perth

    Hello
    My name is Shanelle, and I'm a certified Orthotist/Prosthetist.

    I've been making Plagiocephaly Helmets for 8 years in the Eastern States. I'm now living and working in Perth.

    I will complete a full assessment of your baby's head shape, and can discuss whether the use of a cranial remoulding orthosis (helmet) could be helpful for your child.

    Please don't hesitate to get in touch with me should you have any questions.

    Thank you,

    Hi Everyone,


    I wanted to update my above comment from last year regarding plagiocephaly helmets, with my current contact and clinic details.

    We are treating lots of children for plagiocephaly using custom made cranial re-moulding helmets, and plenty of parents have told me that they have found my details on this thread- so I thought it best to update!

    I am the Senior Orthotist and Practice Manager of our clinic in West Leederville called Interface Orthotics-

    Please don't hesitate to email me on shanelle@interfaceorthotics.com if you had any questions regarding this treatment.

    Kind regards
