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).

Knock knee in a fully grown adult cannot be rectified by physiotherapy or bracing. (In fact, bracing has been shown to be ineffective even in children.) Physiotherapy cannot correct the deformity, but may be used to strengthen the muscles around the knee. The deformity has to be studied by full length standing xrays of your limbs. Usually a corrective osteotomy(surgery) will be required if the deformity is severe.

Hello there.....well knock knees or genu valgum deformities of knee can be a problem cosmetically as well as pathologically....65% cases of knock knees will have pain,stiffness and degeneration of knee joint by the time they are above 55 years....however knock knees can be corrected through hinge bracing as well as through surgery... please remember that knock knees are anatomical joint bone deformitiy  and exercises will help mostly in strengthning the muscles around your knees and giving you good stability....however the joint mal-alignment as such can be corrected only through surgery (if you want quick results) or hinged bracing (prolong time period)....what ever you choose...you would need to undergo rehabilitation/physiotherapy with or without surgical intervention. Regards & take care.

Hello I suggest you to consult an orthopedician as we have to examine you to see what you have described in the question...  generally knock knees means  valgus deformity which is caused due to vitamin d  deficiency .....  thank you
