It happens when the knees angle in and touch each another when the legs are stretched and straightened.
An individual with knock-knees tends not to have his/her ankles and feet touch one another.
It is medically known as Genu Valgum.
Knock knees are a part of normal growth and development. During early childhood, our knees help in maintaining balance and usually self-corrects by ages 7-8.
If the condition doesn’t improve when a child is 6 or older, it could be a sign of an underlying bone disease.
Obesity may contribute to knock knees, or cause a gait pattern that resembles it.
Custom in-toe gait bio-mechanical insoles are designed to restrict knock knees from rotational deformities of the foot (metatarsus adductus).
It alters the break of the ball of foot during propulsion to realignment the hip.
