If you notice when your child is standing that their knees touch but their ankles don’t, your child may have knock knees. 99% of the time kids under the age of four will actually have their knees straighten out by the time they’re about seven or eight.
If not and it persists into adolescence or develops later in life there may be more serious underlying causes.
Custom orthotics could benefit you if you have knock knees through adolescence or adulthood by realigning your feet and therefore realigning the knees further up the chain.
