Valgus/ Varus Knee

Common symptoms are knee pain and also a feeling of the knee giving way. In a Valgus knee, more stress is placed on the lateral (outside) part of the joint so outer knee pain is common. In a varus knee, more stress is placed on the medial (inside) part of the knee so inner knee pain is common. Due to altered lower limb biomechanics hip and/or back pain may also be experienced.
