Emersyn Elaine was born at 25 weeks weighing only 1lb 1.6oz. During her three months extended stay in the CHKD NICU, she developed torticollis causing her to favor laying on her left side. Unfortunate no amount of tummy time could fix the significant flatness she had developed, so the only option was to start the process of getting her a plagiocephaly helmet. This little warrior has gone through so much and is improving by leaps and bounds. Her torticollis is improving with the therapy offered by her early intervention program, and the helmet is in the process of reshaping her little head. We are so blessed that these orthoses are available so that Emersyn won’t have to suffer as much from the effects of her plagiocephaly.
