Have you ever seen an elderly with severe genu varum (bowleg) like this? It could be very painful.

Is there any way to reduce the pain? Is there any way to slow down the deterioration?

The knee is one of the joints subject to the most injuries, since it has to bear 3/4 of the body weight all the time and 2-4 folds of body weight during upstairs.

Normally, the cartilage helps to reduce the pressure and friction in the knee joint so that we do not feel pain when we walk. However, the cartilage is worn out with age, and may lead to degeneration known as osteoarthritis. For the people with bowleg, the stress is more on the medial inner side of the knee. They starts to have medial knee pain when the cartilage is worn out and damaged.

The symptoms of medial osteoarthritic knee are:

  • Medial knee pain
  • Stiffness on the knee in the morning
  • Knee becomes swollen and hot.
  • Clicking sound during knee motion

For people with bowleg condition, the cartilage of knee joint will get thinner due to the excessive stress on the medial side of the joint. The reduction of the cartilage thickness will in turn increase the loading on the spot, leading to more severity of the bowleg condition.
