"Pigeon toed" legs and calcium?
Is this condition really caused by a calcium deficiency? Can it be corrected in adults?

No, being "pigeon toed" has nothing to do with a lack of calcium. The condition can be from inward curving of the foot or a torsion of the knee or hip.

Yes, it can be corrected. How will depend on a variety of factors such as where the problem is stemming from, if the contracture is in the muscles or tendons and the extent of the problem. In some cases the problem can probably be fixed with massage such as rolfing to release the muscles and tendons. In some cases a chiropractor may be able to help correct the torsion. Bracing may be required and in some severe cases probably surgery.
