Genu valgum is an x-shaped formation in the knee bone alignment, especially in children. As the age grows, it shows some improvement. It appears more frequently in girls than in boys. Genu valgum (knock kness) can be seen for many reasons but one of the most important reasons is the lack of vitamin D. It is a disorder called rickets.
Preventing rickets will help improve the appearance of the leg. Therefore, it is very important to take the necessary vitamin D and calcium and phosphorus in the early period. In the sunlight, it will be useful to be 15-20 minutes a day.
This situation may cause different and serious problems in later times. Exercise can also help improve this appearance. If you take advantage of vitamin D, calcium and phosphorus and sunlight enough, another thing to do is exercise.
