Skilled Treatment for Bowed Legs
Pediatric Orthopaedists in Palm Beach
Bowed legs is a condition in which the lower leg curves outward from the
knee. It is a normal part of a toddler’s appearance, and many grow
out of it. However, in the event that the bowed legs do not correct themselves,
there are other possible causes.
One is Blount’s disease, where a child’s skeletal growth plate
will cause the legs to bow. Another cause is Rickets, a bone disease that
cause bone deformities, including bowing. In any case, bracing and therapy
may correct the problem, but in later stages of the disease, surgery may
be the only corrective measure for bowed legs.
