A 24-year-old male asked:
Is there anyway to prevent bowlegs from bending further?

Bowleggedness: Once your growth plates close (after puberty), the bones should not bow that much more, unless they are very severe or have outside forces placed upon them. Bone is a dynamic structure, and my adapt to constant pressures or forces applied to them over periods of time.
