Expert in Bow Legs Treatment at Kukatpally

Bow legs, also known as genu varum, is a condition where the legs curve outward at the knees, causing a distinct space between the feet and ankles when standing with the knees together.

There are two types of bow legs:
1.) Physiological bow legs: A common and normal condition in infants and toddlers, and typically resolves on its own as the child grows.

2.) Pathological bow legs: They are caused by underlying medical conditions such as rickets, Blount's disease, or arthritis.

Symptoms of bow legs can include walking with a waddling gait, knee or hip pain, and a noticeable gap between the knees when standing.

If left untreated, bow legs can lead to joint pain, arthritis, and difficulty with walking.

Treatment options for bow legs include:

  • Bracing
  • Physical therapy
  • In severe cases: surgery to correct the alignment of the bones.

    Dr. Venkatram takes a comprehensive approach to diagnosis and treatment, providing personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient's specific needs and medical history.

    The doctor will first conduct a thorough evaluation of the condition.

    Dr Venkatram will primarily conduct a physical examination to determine if the gap in your child's legs falls within the normal range.

    This assessment will involve measuring the distance between their knees, and it will be regularly reviewed as the child grows until the gap reduces on its own. If the gap does not reduce, Dr Venkatram will decide the treatment depending upon the severity.

    To exclude any bone development problems, an X-ray may be necessary, and a blood test may be performed to identify any underlying causes of bow legs.

    If your child is experiencing symptoms of bow legs, it is important to seek prompt medical attention.
