Bow legs
« on: November 04, 2004, 08:24:46 PM »
I am concerned about my knees since i have bow legs.  The bone on the outside of my knees sticks out when im sitting and i little more when i sit.  Theres about a 3'' gap between my knees when my feet are together.  The inside of my right knee hurt once in a while.  I was wondering if anyone who knows about bow legs could give me alittle bit of facts on whether or not i should be concerned.
thank you.

Hey !!

If you are born with it there's no need to be concerned but if you have difficulties in walking and pain maybe you should let a orthopeadic surgeon look at you. There are surgery they can do to make the bow legs less bow, if you have problems in your daily life.
