Why A Consultation With Dr. Rothbart Is Different Than With Other Doctors
Profile Of A Typical Candidate For Therapy
Does your child have knees that are either turned inward (toward each other) or outward (away from each other)? Though not painful, these two conditions can be a harbinger of a more severe underlying problem.
When the knees are inwardly rotated and/or touching, this is called knock-knee, or technically; Genu Valgum.
Conversely, when the knees are excessively separated and turned outward (resulting in the lower legs bowing outward) this is called bowed leggedness, or technically; Genu Varum.
The easiest way to see if your child has knock-knees or bowed legs is to look at them standing. There should be approximately three finger-widths separation between their knees. If there’s less, they’re knock-kneed, if there’s more, they’re bow legged.
Another way is to look at the bottom of your child’s shoes. If the heels are worn excessively on the inside, your child is prone to develop knock-knees. If the heels are worn excessively on the outside, they are prone to develop bowed legs.
Are Knock-Knees And Bowed Legs A Serous Condition?
Knock-knees are fairly common in healthy children under the age of seven, and are commonly viewed as a normal part of growth and development. But if this persists after the age of seven, it needs to be addressed. If your child has bow leggedness after the age of three, this is something that definitely needs to be looked at.
If a child has either of these conditions; up until recently, if severe enough, the knees were placed in lower leg casts (in an attempt to straighten the legs). In the most severe cases, surgical reconstruction of the lower legs was advised.
But both these interventions proved inappropriate because, in many cases, after the intervention the problem returned. It became apparent that both these conditions were symptoms, and that in order to get rid of these symptoms, it’s necessary to identify the cause and treat the cause directly.
My 45 years of research and clinical practice has demonstrated that the cause of knock-knees is an inherited, abnormal foot structure, the PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity. This common foot structure causes the arch to collapse (creating a flat foot) and so forces the child to walk on the inside of their feet. During the course of their childhood, this excessive flat footedness generates a force starting from the inside of their feet, which travels up through the inside of their legs. This results in the knees being forced inward.
