Orthotic shoe insoles

Bow legs will make you walk imbalanced and this can lead to issues in your spine. knees and your feet. There are orthotic insoles that can be made to fit your feet. They will help control the way your feet function, relieve foot pain and reduce any risk you may have of arthritis.

Performing bow leg exercises, will help strengthen the muscles, improve the posture and work on the flexibility of tendons. Bow legs exercises should involve working on your inner thighs, or abductors, and can be very effective in improving the look of your legs and your overall health.

Yoga and Pilates are great in helping you build your core, realign the body and improve your posture. There are a number of moves that will strengthen your overall body, but in particular the exercises that work the legs can be most effective.
