Knock-knee (genu valgum)

Your kid suffer from Knock-knee? We can help you!

Cavous knees are an internal deviation of the knees giving the impression that they are touching in a standing position. There are certain age ranges (3-6 years) during growth that it is normal for the knees to appear this way however, in cases where they appear moderate to severe, a podiatric analysis is recommended. An internal deviation of the knees can be exasperated by flat feet or unacceptable internal hip rotation. Children with knee-out knees often complain of leg and knee pain preventing them from participating in sport activities.
