Genu Recurvatum Exercises
What is the cause of genu recurvatum gait? Is it weakness in the hamstrings muscle or quadriceps? If you have helpful source please help me
Varies: There are a number of possibilities, primarily stemming from musculoskeletal to neurological abnormalities. In simple terms, genu recur stun refers to a hyperextension of the knee. The hamstrings and the intrinsic ligaments of the knee are the usual structures that limit this hyper extension.
Multiple etiologies: Etiologies: bilateral genu valgum physiologic renal osteodystrophy (renal rickets) skeletal dysplasia Morquio syndrome spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia chondroctodermal dysplasia unilateral genu valgum physeal injury from trauma, infection, or vascular insult proximal metaphyseal tibia fracture benign tumors fibrous dysplasia osteochondromas Ollier's disease
Knock knee: If persists after age 7 yrs-greater than 8cm between medial maleolus with knees facing forward
Is there a problem in making children if you have genu valgum? I mean...Can men make sex or they have some difficulties?
Yes: The musculo skeletal system is complety independand of the reproductive system, that means that yes they can have intercourse and reproduce.See 1 more doctor answer
Genuine Varum: If you are having pain and it is due to the deformity and you have good joint space, you can have an osteotomy to cut and bend the bone.
Yes there is treatme: Blount's disease is a deformity in the legs, mostly from the knees to the ankles. The affected bone curves in or out and forms the usual "archers bow" which can also be called bow-legs. Yes there is treatment for that.
Give it time: Babies often change from appearing "bow legged" as they start to walk; "knock kneed" at 4-6 and straightened up by 8-10. The most some do would be to document the amount (measurements from x-rays), since this is all relative. This is a conversation you can have with the kids doc. If s/he did not explore the issue it was probably mild enough not to do so, but I would discuss that.See 1 more doctor answer
It depend: Genu valgum is a condition where the knees angle in and touch one another when the legs are straightened. It depend on the method use for that. There are the general complications with any surgery and the risk of the correction it self. Malunion, postoperative infections and problems with healing. Compartment syndrome, recurrence of the deformity, re some of the potential complications.See 1 more doctor answer
Bowlegged.: The legs bow outward at the knees. It can occur in one or both legs.
