What it is Genu varum (bowed legs)?
Medically referred to as Genu Varum, Bow legs are a condition where the child’s legs are bowed outwards in the standing position. That is, when the ankles are placed together the knees are apart. When misalignment is mild and pain-free, bowed legs are not usually of concern. However, it is possible that bowed legs predispose people to other issues such as pain, osteoarthritis, lateral ankle impingement, and issues associated with excessive loading.
