Knock Knees in Defense Selection  Medical Test or Army Medical Test

     Knock Knees is a cause for rejection in the medical test for Armed forces.
First I will explain,
What is knock knees?
     Knock knees is the deformality of the knee bone in leg.  The scientific name for knock knees is "Genu Valgum".  i.e. While standing straight, the two knees should not touch each other.  If this touches each other mean, then the candidate is declared as having "Knock Knees".
   
i.e. basic about this is, two knees should not go away from each other of get much closer to each other.  
How they examine this in Medical board or Defence Medical Test:-
     Usually the knock knee test is conducted by an Orthologist.  He conducts this check by examining the candidate while he is standing straight.  Also, if the doctor gets any doubt, they will conform this with a help of an X-ray.

Treatment for Knock Knees:-
     There is no specific treatment for knock knees.  How ever there are some treatments such as practicing yoga for a long time, doing some physiotherapist exercises may cure this.
These are about knock knees examination in Armed Forces. Thank you friends.
