Do I have Knock Knees?

7462401?1322804406
Hi,

I was wondering if you could tell me whether I have knock knees or not. I'm not really quite sure, as my knees are almost touching and bow out around the tibia/shin, but my ankles are touching.

When I was younger, my doctor told me I had Osgood-Schlatter's Disease, but that I would grow out of it. My knees don't hurt anymore, so I'm assuming that I have grown out of it.

I'm not sure if this helps or not, but I also had a sleep study done and they said that I have Restless Leg Syndrome and Periodic Limb Movement. I also have slight scoliosis.

Thank you!

Hi there!

There is an inward bend, however it is mild and not severe enough to consider the diagnosis of knock knees. If there are no other symptoms around the knee joint(s), this should not be anything to worry about.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
