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!

Many people are looking for a way to fix their bow legs without a surgery. I was looking for such information many times in the past as well. What I hoped to find was that there were exercises to fix bow legs that will help me control the shape of my bow legs.

After a lot of research I came to the conclusion that there aren’t any exercises to fix bow legs :(

My Doctor (Orthopedist) told me that the shape of the bow legs (in my case at least) can only be fixed by a surgery.  My Pilates instructor told me that exercise won’t change the shape of my bow legs, but it can help me change my posture, so that my bow legs would look better. Both recommended me to try Pilates.

If exercise cannot help to fix bow legs, at least it can help reshape your body and posture. I started Pilates a couple of months ago, and I really feel better as a result.

Here is a list of eBooks and Videos that are supposed to help make your lower body/legs look better (I never tried them):

  1. Leg Exercises/Lower Body Workouts for Women
  2. Fitness Ebooks

If you have bow legs, and especially if you are a women, you probably went many times to the shoe stores looking for the perfect boots that will make your legs look straight and pretty when you wear short skirts…but when you finally find a pair of boots you like and you try them on, you realize that they are so tight on the leg that your bow legs outline is shown…! I know this happened to me so many times that at one stage I thought about giving up on boots :(

Although searching for the shoes is hard, there are many boots, sandals and shoes that will look good on curved bow legs!

Here is what I think:

What NOT to wear:

  • Shoes/Boots that are tight and emphasis the bow legs outline
  • Sandals with high straps – in many cases it “cuts” your bow legs in the middle, making it look shorter and curved.

What to Wear:

Where to get such shoes?

Many stores have fashionable shoes that will look good on bow legs; you just need to remember the guidelines of what to wear and what not.

Online shopping sites for shoes:

  • jshoppers.com – They have special shoes for bow legs. Just search “bowlegs” or go to the “Special Shoes/Special Sandals” category.
  • – They have great designer shoes.
  • Shoebuy.com
    They have many shoes and many brands. They have Clarks (where I usually buy my shoes), ECCO, Crocs and much more…

I was looking for information on bow legs surgery and found this interesting video on YouTube.
It shows a person who had a bow legs correction surgery and according to the title, walks just before Ilizarov-Veklich apparatus removal.
I wonder what it looks like after the removal, if it hurts or if there are scars on the legs.

– Video was taken from http://www.youtube.com/
