Femoral anteversion: On of the more common causes of "In/toeing" is known as femoral anteversion, in which the femoral neck of the hip is angular end anteriorly. This can cause a person to swing the leg internally at the hip to try to out it in a more neutral position. It can be associated with symptoms along the tensor fascia Lata that can cause hip and knee pain. Therapy can often help dramatically for symptoms.
