Foot X in the medical term is called genu valgum. This condition can be caused by genetic disorders, rickets (vitamin D deficiency), obesity, certain disease conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, bone infection or due to a history of injury to the knee or surrounding bones.
To fix this, the doctor will first perform a physical examination. After seeing the level of severity and causes, the doctor will determine the most appropriate therapy. Therapy that can be chosen from using assistive devices, doing certain sports, physiotherapy, losing weight (for those who are obese or overweight) to the choice of surgery.
