hi there,
thread like fractures in past about 10 years ago-it might have healed,to confirm it you need to get an x-ray done of foot AP and LATERAL view,besides that the cause of curved leg is different it may be due to various other reasons,i suggest you to get consulted with a orthopedics doctor,he will examine and get some investigation done then only the cause of curved legs could be known,as of now your father can take some multi vitamins and calcium tablets these are available in market by the name BECOSULE and CALCIUM GLUCONATE to be taken daily once.
