In this article I will tell you that how to fix bow legs without surgery and straighten them with out any type of surgery.
Knock knees can be described as a condition where a person's knees bend inwards and possibly
touch one another when the person straightens his or her legs. This condition is caused due to
a weakness of the person's abductor muscles that are present outside the thighs and hips. To
straighten knock knees, practicing abductor-strengthening exercises would be a good option.
Many muscles like the tensor fascia lata, gluteus medius, etc... are involved in the abduction.
Here are some of the exercises that may help people with a knock knee condition:
Side lunges: This form of exercise is capable of offering workouts for the quadriceps,
