Do You See The Knee Alignment Problem On The Left Side???

This patient presents with bilateral bowlegs.  You can see in this photo that the left leg has more of a Bowing  at the knee joint.  This produces a compression force on the inside of the knee and a stretching on the outside of the knee.  If this patient presents with inside or medial knee pain, you must be concerned with medial compression syndrome.  Orthotic devices which oversupinate  the foot, can produce this effect even in a normal patient.  Due to the stretching of the outside or lateral side of the knee, ilio–tibial band syndrome is quite common.
