Does this leg shape have a name?
« on: June 11, 2020, 12:59:59 PM »
Hi everyone, I have been dealing with serious knee pain for 4-5 years. I have tried a lot and been to several doctors and physical therapists without results. I'm not going to bother you guys with all of the details to try and get a diagnosis, but there is one thing I could really use help with: My legs just look oddly shaped. None of the people I've consulted have ever had anything useful to say about this, but to me it just looks like there is a clear link. It's not classical valgus or varus or anything like that, so I'm wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction to figure out what's off and what I could do.

It looks like you might have some tibial rotational problem. It is not so easy to asses with the knees and feet apart - try a photo with the feet together and pointing forwards, and then one with the knees together and the kneecaps pointing forwards (and the feet where they are comfortable in that situation).
