Knock knees treatment-braces
Hello! I'm almost 15 years old and I've got knock knees. It isn't a big deformation- when my knees are touching, my ankles are about 4 cm apart. I would like to do something with it because it bothers me while doing exercises, walking etc. I don't want a surgery becuase I know I don't have a big problem. Would exercices help me? I just want to correct about 1 or 2 cm. Maybe some night braces? Please help me!

Hi there!

Exercises and conservative management is unlikely to help with knock knees at the age of 15 years. The only definite solution is a surgery, which is again best avoided if the deformity if mild. You may consider an evaluation by an orthopedician for suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
