Dear friend
There are many books showing lots of things to cure so many problems.
I am not saying that the book is wrong but just suggesting you to visit physiotherapist before you go for any exercise.

First of all hats of to you for considering exercise. Whether you use the book or not exercise will help you anyway. Regarding bow legs. First ensure you have them in the first place. If you do then ensure you stick to your exercise goals. And remember it's long term the older you get the harder it becomes but it's not impossible with commitment. All the best to you.

Avoid sitting Cross legged. Avoid Squatting- Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports Taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area Contrast Fomentation (Hot and Cold).
