Deformational plagiocephaly (DP) is on the rise in pediatric patients. The current standard of care recommended for management is repositioning with possible addition of cranial orthoses. However, strong data are lacking to support these recommendations. Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) is another treatment option for DP that is also lacking evidential support

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder with a prevalence that is on the rise. Despite a growing body of research, definitive etiology or universally beneficial treatments have not been identified. Patients and providers try therapeutic modalities beyond the conventional interventions, including osteopathic manipulative treatment or OMT. Reports on OMT as therapy for patients with ASD are few. These case reports seek to add to the small body of evidence supporting the use of OMT in patients with ASD.
