When a curvature becomes apparent, provided there are no contra-indications, therapy can start in early teens and if the subject is well-grown, a bit sooner. The goal is to work periodically to correct the curvature and then maintain it. In some cases it never really develops and in others it is greatly minimized. There are many factors that come into play in these cases that determine degree of correction and maintenance of the correction. Since it is safe, gentle and non-invasive, Reflex Therapy is well worth investigating for the benefit of the developing youth.
