Usually nothing


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

Interesting Fact

For those overweight with knee pain, for every pound you take off, you take 6-8 pounds off the knees.

 Knock knees Knee Cartilage

Unfortunately not


Normal knee alignment spreads the forces of weightbearing evenly across both sides of the knee. Unfortunately, knock knees (aka valgus knees) and bowlegged knees (aka varus knees) overloads the lateral side (outside) and the medial side (inside), respectively. This overload can cause early wear of the cartilage as well as causing dysfunction of the patellofemoral joint (kneecap).

See an orthopaedist


Specifically a pediatric orthopaedist. If the child's growth plates are still open, a small surgery called guided growth can help correct the patient during growth. If they are no longer growing, the only option to "fix" the problem is an osteotomy (cutting of the bones).

I suppose


Genu simply knee and valgus is the deformity that means the lower part (toward the ankle) is jutting to the outside. I believe that this is the more scientific name for "knock-knees". The opposite deformity, genu varum, would be when the knees are bowed to the outside and one has the proverbial "can't catch a pig in a ditch" problem. Both problems lead to uneven loading of the knee.
