Hi All
I’ve received letter in post from hospital orthopaedics and they’ve sent me a copy of the letter they’ve sent to my GP .
They state in letter I have antalgic gait and wondered if anyone knew what it meant or experienced this ?
Also states I have mild Varus alignment .
I know I’ve been limping for while so just thought it may be that .apparently it is correctable it states in letter .

    An antalgic gait is a subconscious way of walking to relieve pain and a varus alignment means that the knee is not aligned properly.
