Slender and long beautiful legs are the dream of most women. Sometimes an offensive, casually expressed remark can cause serious complexes and personal dramas. In order not to torment oneself with unnecessary doubts, it is necessary to determine how real this problem is.

How to know if your legs are crooked or not


Step 1

The curvature of the legs can be roughly divided into true and false. True curvature is caused by the curvature of the bones. This problem requires consultation and treatment with an orthopedic surgeon. Fortunately, this situation is not very common.

Step 2

As a rule, we are talking about a false curvature of the legs. In this case, the appearance of curvature occurs due to the unfavorable location of the soft tissues. The bones of the legs are straight.

Step 3

In order to determine if you have curvature of your legs, you need to take off your shoes and stand directly on a flat surface. Place your feet together and close your hips tightly. Perfectly straight legs should touch at three points - ankles, calves and knees. In this case, four "gaps" are formed - above the knee, below the knee, above the ankle, and between the foot and ankle. True curvature of the legs is diagnosed in the absence of two points of contact.

Step 4

If there is no contact in the area of ​​the knees and calves, then we are talking about an O-shaped curvature of the bones. If there is no contact in the area of ​​the ankles and calves, then this defect is called an X-shaped curvature.

Step 5

If only one point of contact is missing - in the area of ​​the calf muscles - then there is reason to talk about a false curvature of the legs.

Step 6

You can correct the false curvature of the legs with the help of special exercises. If this method does not suit you for some reason, then plastic surgery will come to the rescue. False curvature can be easily eliminated thanks to silicone implants or autologous fat injections.

Step 7

With the true curvature of the legs, contouring is usually ineffective. The only way to correct this deficiency is to seek help from an orthopedic surgeon. In such cases, the doctor may perform an operation to remove the bones of the lower leg. For fusion of bones in the desired position after the operation, the Ilizarov apparatus is applied. It should be noted that this operation is a serious surgical intervention and has many contraindications. In addition, during its implementation, there is a risk of various complications. The rehabilitation period can be 2-3 months.

Step 8

The easiest and most enjoyable way to get rid of the curvature of your legs is to choose the right clothes. For example, jeans and straight-cut trousers will visually "straighten" any curvature. Mini skirts can be combined with tights with a large geometric pattern or with over the knee boots. For legs that are too thin, tights with horizontal stripes are suitable.
