"Knee pain is now being treated with regenerative medicine at The Center for Regenerative Medicine," according to A.J. Farshchian MD an orthopedic regenerative practitioner at the center for regenerative medicine.
Bowleggedness produces a disturbance in the biomechanics of the knee and misalignment between the involved muscular skeleton system. This contributes to Degenerative Joint Disease. A recent Northwestern University study concluded that people with arthritis or DJD (Degenerative Joint Disease) whose knees are misalignment with their ankles and feet have up to five times the risk of their getting worse.
It is very important for the knee to be be aligned properly. Patients who become bowlegged is usually because of more pressure on the medial (inner aspect of the) knees. This condition is also known as "Genu Varus." This abnormal distribution of weight causes wearing of the cartilage and joint to accelerate and makes arthritis worse. In this condition legs are bowed outwards in the standing position
