View all news Highlights One-Year-Old Jackson Storey’s Cranial Helmet Journey for National Plagiocephaly and Torticollis Awareness Day


KANSAS CITY, Mo. – March 19, 2021 – Since November, one-year-old Jackson Storey has been on a journey to treat his plagiocephaly (otherwise known as “flat head syndrome”) with a cranial helmet fit by Shannon O’Shea, CPO, Hanger Clinic Area Clinic Manager in Kansas City. His mother Abby Storey has also been on a mission to educate parents of children with Jackson’s rare condition, osteogenesis imperfect (OI) type III or “Brittle Bone Disease,” about the potential for helmet therapy to help their little ones.

O’Shea and Storey spoke with to help raise awareness around cranial asymmetry for National Plagiocephaly and Torticollis Awareness Day on March 20. Storey shared how Jackson is making progress with helmet therapy, and how O’Shea—a member of Hanger Clinic’s nationwide network of cranial specialists—has been using her expertise to educate and support the Storey family and, most importantly, ensure Jackson achieves the best outcome.

Storey advises other parents considering helmet treatment to “Just take it day by day. I have really enjoyed using it, and it has helped him immensely. And, view it as a positive thing because it is a positive thing."
