Bowleg is a term used to describe outward curving of the legs. Also known as genu varum, this is part of normal development. It is actually abnormal for children less than 18 months of age not to be bowleg but if left untreated it will be a physical deformation of the bones to grown ups and adults.
A Knock Knees is a term used to describe inward curving of the legs. It is a condition wherein the knees angle in and touch one another when the legs are straightened. Also known as genu valgum.
It is a common leg problem that can cause self-diminishment, self-inferiority, and socially discomfort. Any forms of deformities like bowlegs and knock knees affect our daily lives, physically and socially. Bowlegs and Knock Knees also add strain to the bones and leg joints and can cause flat footedness, osteoarthrosis, and gonarthrosis.

In order to determine your leg type, compare them with the pictures shown above. Ideal legs would look similar to those in picture A. With straight, non-bandy legs, knees and ankles are touching when you stand. In this case, the “right” legs form four windows: between the foot and the ankle, above the ankle, directly under the knee, and above the knee in the lower part of the thighs.
3 types or forms of leg curvature:
Picture B. О-shaped curvature is a congenital bone deformation where in the standing position - only ankles are touching, and the knees separate; both ankles in this deformation come off like the letter O.
Picture C. Х-shaped curvature is a congenital bone deformation where the standing position shows the touching of only knees, and the ankles are apart; in this type of deformation, the closed legs look the letter X.
Picture D. Other than the true shin deformation, there is also a false shin curvature.
The false curvature is in the unique structure of the lower limbs, which is clearly revealed with a visible curvature, such as when there is no bone deformation and it is related to the complications of muscle tissue distribution.
