What causes angulation at the knee?
Can be corrected with braces.
Thanks for posting your query.
The angulation at the knee that you have can be due to removal of the meniscus or due to an injury to the knee joint in the past. The treatment depends on the degree of deformity that you have.
X-rays are necessary to evaluate the degree of angulation. Minor angulation can be corrected by using a knee brace and orthotics or shoe inserts.
In case the deformity is a major one and is associated with symptoms like problem in the gait or persistent pain then surgical correction of the knee joint may be needed.
I encourage you to consult an orthopedician for a physical examination and relevant investigations so that proper treatment can be planned according to the degree of deformity.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
