This is a condition where the knees are pointing in towards one another whilst the feet and legs are facing straight. This can be to the point where the ankles are unable to touch without the knee’s “knocking” into one another.
Based on an average child’s growth patterns, knock knees begin to be most prevalent between the ages of 3 - 5 years of age. Prior to the ages of the three as babies begin to walk the legs are further apart to sustain balance and support their centre of gravity. And above the ages of 7 the legs tend to be straighter as the hips and femur rotate into a posturally sound alignment.
There are 5 key factors relating to seek treatment for knock knees.
