All About Bow-Leggedness

Postby osim » Thu Jul 04, 2013 9:52 pm

Anyone has a child with this problem. Pls share your experience.

When did it start and did the condition deteriorate over the years?

Any medical help, good orthopaedic doc to recommend?

Podiatrist has to do with the feet? Bow leggedness something to do with the tibia bone. Nevertheless, thanks for checking.

Do your FIL and hubby get any pain at their legs at their age? Their problem is curving of the lower leg bone?

Did not hear any mention of pain. It was not curved suddenly, hubby said born like this.

That's good. I heard some get pain later part in their life. My boy has the problem only in adolescent. Thought of bringing him to see a specialist to get a record so that we can monitor if it gets worse over the years.

Yes, I agreed that if children at young age, better to bring them see doctor rather than regret later. I regret that did bring my boy to see specialist earlier.
