How a person may develop bow legs

You might wonder why it is so important to know what actually causes bow legs. All one is really looking for is a feasible method of treatment. But, without a fair deal of knowledge of the condition, it may not be possible to find the most appropriate method of treatment from what's available. In this, bow legs are like a good many other disorders. For example, because we know what causes arthritis and how the condition worsens, we can treat it with the right medication that targets the condition specifically. It's the same with bow legs. Indeed, the two conditions are often related.

Besides, with bow legs, due to it being a time-critical disorder, it is vital to be able to find a treatment regimen that works without fail. Young children with bow legs cannot afford to have incorrect treatment options chosen for them, lest their condition worsen and become chronic or permanent. Adults may also need to be treated without delay, especially if their condition is worsening and they are heading towards the development of more serious issues like arthritis. So, let's now talk about the different possible factors that could cause bow legs.

Breaks and fractures in bones
At times, especially during accidents, our bones are subjected to unusually high or sudden pressure, causing them to either completely snap or just develop a fracture. If any of this occurs and is left unattended without ensuring proper healing, then this might at times lead to bow legs.

Rickets
This is a very common cause of bow legs seen in adults. It is caused by a deficiency of vitamin D and can give rise to bow legs as a secondary disorder.

Tumor cells within bone tissue
At times, due to various predispositions, people develop tumors within their bones. If these tumors happen to occur within the bones of the legs, then one could see themselves developing bow legs very rapidly. Please note that these tumors can also be cancerous and one should always seek medical advice in such situations.

Blount's Disease
This is a type of disease that affects the normal growth of bones, particularly the shin bone, and this results in an individual suffering from bow legs. Since all children are born with bow-shaped legs it is usually difficult for a doctor to tell if a child has Blount's Disease or not, until of course, the child develops past 3 years of age or into an adult. The only way to detect this disease is through an X-ray report of the legs.

Brittle bones
This condition, called brittle bone disease, is also medically referred to as osteogenesis imperfecta. It is known to be a genetic disorder found to weaken bones to such an extent that even small amounts of pressure could result in them snapping or developing serious fractures. It is not surprising that such a bone condition can also give rise to bow legs.
