Bowleg is generally characterized by extra space between knees and hip joint when standing straight with feet touching. After 40 years of treatment experience at Kasahara clinic, we recognize 4 different types of bowleg in addition to knock knee. These 5 types of leg deformity have different causes and appearances.

Mechanism of bowleg and knock knee

Even after a chiropractic adjustment, making the outer side of shoe sole higher, or wearing a supporter to tighten knees during night, bowleggedness will return in daily walking unless the mechanism of occurrence is understood. This key is correcting the sole balance, the foundation of the body.

Treating bowleg and knock knee

It is important to correct the sole balance by Kasahara Taping Treatment or 3-toe socks to avoid “twisted walking” and promote walking with well-grounded toes to kick straight. At the same time, it is necessary to tighten and support the slipped greater trochanter with a bandage treatment or back supporter.
