There are numerous physical health challenges that athletes experience due to the continuous repetitive movement. For some athletes, one of the most problematic conditions is knock knees. When athletes with knock knees straighten their legs, the knees will angle inwards and the ankles remain apart.
This valgus deformity can cause a lot of pain if you leave the medical condition untreated. The chronic pain will not only limit your athletic activities, it will also affect daily activities such as walking. You might also develop a limp due to the discomfort on your knees. Knock knees is not just a cosmetic problem; it will also increase your risk of developing stress fractures and arthritis in the future.
