I am 23 and was diagnosed with knock knees when I was 9. It didn't start really affecting my life until very recently. I don't know what it is but since mid month my right knee has been acting oddly. It started with the knee feeling strange when I would bend my leg, like something wasn't where it was supposed to and now my right knee is in almost constant pain ranging from mild to severe. It's now interfering with my life and my job even when I wear the knee brace. I've had orthodics since I was 9 and have knee braces for whenever it gets too much.
Anyone else have this problem and know how to solve it? I don't want to go to a doctor since he won't say anything useful-he hasn't been much help to me in telling me how to manage this. I'm going by what my pediatrtion told me way back when I still went to one.

  • Yes it can be treated. I am 38 years old and I just had my knock knee treated by specialist in Edinburgh, Scotland. The doctors do one leg at a time. The reason for this is that, you cannot put weight bearing on the operated leg for six weeks. It depends on the surgical procedure your doctor will use. Some people walk the same day but It took me 7 weeks before I was able to put partial weight bearing on my operated leg. All my pains are gone and I have straight legs now. These doctors are amazing and they are our Gods on this earth.
