First consult orthopaedic surgeon. Take an x-ray. If it is slightly it's not a severe problem. We suggest you exercises and some precautions like avoid sitting cross legged.
If problem is severe doctor suggests you for the further treatment. It can be corrected through surgically.
Then, you need to do best physiotherapy.

Agree with orthopedicians for the need of scannograms and calculate the angles and see whether if uts too severe and the surgical correction can help or not. As many physiotherapist here are saying if Conservative then physiotherapy...yes thats true..but u need to understand that physiotherapy in this case is gonna strengthen ur muscle but its nit gonna change ur appearance or knocking or touching if knees at the end. So if the angle ot knicking botherng u a lot then surgical correction advised after thorough check up. Thanks

You need to do a standing xray of both lower limbs called as a scannogram.It helps calculate the angle and if its in an acceptable range or needs surgery to correct the angle.Note that your treatment will either be accept what u have now or correct the angle by doing a small surgery.There is no role of any other treatment as you are 25yrs old and are skeletally mature.
Next Steps
you can email me your scannogram reports

Get a xray done in standing position...depending upon the angle of curvature we can decide whether its correctable conservatively or needs surgical invention...
For conservative intervention physiotherapy is highly suggested.

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).
