My toddler and bow legs

Posted by: Shelley in Categories: Bow Legs, Children Bow Legs.

It’s been a while. I have a toddler now, so I didn’t have much time to write.
Like all babies, he was born with o legs. Now that he is walking and running I constantly worry that he will have my legs, bow legs. His legs are already straighter than mine, but still not 100%. I’m taking him to the doctor once every 6 months to check it. So far the doctor thinks it’s OK. I know that this should not worry me, but since it took me a long time to accept my legs, I really don’t want my baby to go through the same thing.
Has anyone here had these feelings?

Last week ‘Not a Cowgirl’ left a great comment with a personal story regarding her bow legs surgery.

I think this story really helps understand the meaning of going through a bow legs surgery, and I personally wanted to read more about this after reading this comment. So…I’ve decided to share a link to her blog, where you can see pictures of the bow legs before and after and read more about her bow legs story – http://notacowgirl.wordpress.com/

In addition, I wanted to thank all of you for sharing your experience! Most people that visit this site suffer from bow legs and are looking for answers and your stories are important.

Don’t forget to read the comment and add your own -http://bow-legged.com/bow-legs-correction-interview-with-someone-who-had-the-surgery/

Have a great weekend!

Hi all,

I’ve been writing about bow legs for quite some time now. I’d like to know what you would like to read about regarding bow legs, and I’ll do my best to research it and try to write about it.
In addition, whenever I find products that are relevant to bow legs I update you all as well, but please help me by giving me feedback on what you would like to know:

Would you like to read more about bow legs exercises?
Would you like to see more bow legs correction videos?
Would you like to read about bow legs real life stories?
Are there any products you are interested in?

I started this blog because I couldn’t find information regarding adults with bow legs and ways to fix this deformity. I would like this blog to be helpful for all of you who are also interested in bow legs and would really appreciate your feedback.

Thanks,

- Shelley

I have bow legs and I’m running 5 KM once a week for over a year now. I saw in several websites that running with bow legs might cause problems and saw someone mentioning “under-pronation” which I wasn’t sure what it was so here are a few resources I found that talk about bow legs and running in general:

I use Nike Air mostly and New Balance for running, and I really like both of them.
New Balance WR1224 (Women's) - Silver/Azalea New Balance WR1225 (Women's) - White/Blue
adidas adiStar Ride 2 (Women's) - Running White/Dark Steel Metallic/Art Red adidas Supernova Sequence 2 (Women's) - Running White/Dark Steel Metallic/Art Green
Enjoy,

Bow legs correction

I found this video today on YouTube. In this video you can find some information on bow legs correction treatment.

Personally, I don’t think I’ll ever do the surgery (unless I have to of course), but I hope this helps anyone who is considering it.

Please write a comment/add a new post to the forum if there’s something you think this blog should cover as well regarding bow legs. I will try to find the relevant information if relevant.
