What is Varus Deformity?

Varus Deformity also known Varus Knee is a condition that causes the ankle to turn inward (valgus). When a person has this condition, their feet are turned inwards, and their ankles appear knock-kneed.

Varus Deformity can affect people of all ages, including children. It is most common in adolescents and adults who have flat feet or pronated feet.

What are the types of Varus Deformity?

Varus deformity is a condition characterized by an abnormally increased angle in the ankle joint. This can be either intra-articular or extra-articular.

Intra-articular Varus Deformity

The ligaments around the ankle joint are damaged and cannot support the joint, causing it to become unstable. If this is the case, you may experience pain and swelling in your foot when walking on uneven surfaces or after long periods of standing.

Extra-articular Varus Deformity

There is no damage to the ligaments around your ankle joint, but rather an issue with your bones or tendons that causes them to rotate inward and create an angle. This type of varus deformity can occur after an injury such as a sprain or fracture of your ankle bone, but it can also happen for no apparent reason at all (idiopathic).

What are the causes of Varus Deformity?

Varus Deformity is believed to be caused by an imbalance of forces on the tibia and femur, which leads to abnormal development of the bones in those areas. This can happen for a number of reasons, including:

  • Excessive pronation – when the foot rolls inward when walking or running (usually the result of flat feet)
  • Ankle injury – like a sprain or fracture
  • Genetic conditions – like Marfan syndrome or Ehlers-Danlos syndrome

What are the symptoms of Varus Deformity?

The symptoms of varus deformity include:

  • Pain at the knee or around it
  • Swelling at the knee or around it
  • A popping sound when you move your knee
  • Difficulty walking, especially up and down stairs

What are the risk factors for Varus Deformity?

The risk factors for varus deformity include:

-Genetics – Having a family history of varus deformity can increase your risk of developing it yourself.

-Trauma – A broken ankle or similar injury can lead to varus deformity.

-Age – Varus deformity is most common in young people and older adults, but anyone who has suffered an accident that causes damage to their bones may develop this condition.

What are the exercises for Varus Deformity?

The exercises for varus deformity are designed to strengthen the muscles on the inside of your thigh, as well as your gluteal and abdominal muscles. They should be done daily, with each exercise performed as many times as possible until you reach muscle failure.

Standing Leg Curl

This exercise is performed by standing with your legs hip-width apart and keeping a slight bend in your knee. Then raise one leg up behind you while keeping your back straight and lower it down again slowly. Repeat this motion 40 times per leg.

Wall Squat

Stand against a wall with your hands on it at chest height, then drop into a squat until your thighs are parallel to the ground and stand back up again slowly. Repeat this motion 50 times per leg.

Crunches

Lie down on the floor with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Then raise your torso off the ground so that only your shoulders and upper back remain touching it, then return to starting position slowly (this counts as one rep). Repeat this exercise 50 times per day for maximum benefits!

What are the treatments for Varus Deformity?

The treatments for Varus Deformity depend on the severity of the deformity. In some cases, your doctor may recommend a brace to help correct the alignment of your ankle. In other cases, your doctor may recommend surgery to correct the alignment of your ankle.
