To have knock knees can be annoying and cause discomfort and pain as a person grows older.
However, a knocked knees condition can be addressed by strengthening the supporting muscles in the hip and knees area. Such corrective exercises may even slightly improve the alignment of the knees as well.
Many toddlers have either bowed legs or knock knees from their infancy to roughly the ages of three to four years old when the legs straighten themselves out. However, for children who do not grow out of this condition or perhaps for those who suffer an injury to the leg which causes one knee to drop inward, there are corrective exercises that can provide more support and improve the overall alignment of the knees.
Stabilizing the Knee
This is a balancing exercise where you are using one leg to stabilize the body while the other leg is moving. These exercises are designed to work the outer and then inner thigh area of the leg that is moving.
You’ll want to watch the position of your standing leg to ensure that the knee stays in proper alignment with the ankle and the hip. .
Bent Knee Bridge
This interesting exercise starts by lying on the floor with both knees bent upward as your feet are flat on the floor. .
You should alternate with both knees even if only one is bent inward. .
Squeeze the Ball
This exercise helps strengthen the abductor muscles which supports the knees. You will need an exercise ball for this routine. .
By doing these exercises, you will work the appropriate muscles without putting any undo strain on your knock knees. .
This type of exercise uses a circular resistance bank to help properly align the legs so that the workout can improve the strength of the knees and hips. You start this exercise by placing the band around the ankles. .
You can watch yourself in a mirror to ensure that you don’t cheat or have your knees go out of alignment.
These types of corrective exercises can help improve the strength of the muscles around your knock knees to provide better support.
