However it depends on severity. Severe knock knees can lead to early arthritis due to overload of one side of the joint. It may be treated in these cases with an osteotomy i realign the bones in a more favorable position. Often this is done gradually with external fixation to avoid nerve injury.

For knock knees usually nothing needs to be done as often times it corrects with time. In severe cases with minimal or no improvement, surgery may be indicated to correct the deformity. Have the knees evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate advice and treatment for your condition.
