What are bowlegs?
Bowlegs occur when the knees bend outward more than normal. Most of the time this is normal in young children up to the age of 2 or 3 years.
What causes bowlegs?
Most of the time this is a normal part of the way children’s bones grow and change as they get older. In rare cases, a vitamin deficiency may be the cause.
Treatment is normally not needed. The medical provider will want to see your child for an exam if the condition:
- Is severe
- Involves only one leg
- Lasts past the age of 2
