If your child has bowlegs along with any of the following symptoms, they may have a more serious condition:
- bowlegs that continue to get worse after the age of 2
- the asymmetric appearance of the bowing
- difficulty walking
- knee or hip pain
- Problems with advanced forms of movement, like running
- Inability to stand upright
- Muscle and bone-related problems
You should talk to a pediatrician or orthopedic doctor if your child’s legs are still bowed beyond the age of 2, or if the condition becomes worse.
