The aim of this trial is to evaluate the effectiveness of osteopathic manipulative therapy in reducing the asymmetries of skull in infants with nonsynostotic plagiocephaly.
Nonsynostotic plagiocephaly (NSP) is defined as the deformation of the head resulting from external forces that mould the skull during the first months of life.
Four months seems to be a critical age for the development of NSP, but many positional head shape deformities may improve with time.
Early assessment and diagnosis is important not only for the shape of the skull, but also for possible clinical significant differences in gross motor development.
In paediatric conditions the effect of osteopathic manipulative treatment is documented in systematic reviews; in NSP the only study, which is a pilot, reveals an average reduction of 50% asymmetry on 12 infants who have undergone a course of four osteopathic treatments.

Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.
Treatment using irradiation with light of low power intensity so that the effects are a response to the light and not due to heat. A variety of light sources, especially low-power lasers are used.
A therapeutic approach, involving chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery, after initial regimens have failed to lead to improvement in a patient's condition. Salvage therapy is most often used for neoplastic diseases.
