Odd knee shape

I know that it's common for people to have over or underdeveloped muscles, but in both my knees on the inner parts the muscles are very visibly overdeveloped, and the outter muscles are underdeveloped. So if I were to put my knees together, say in standing at attention, it's obvious there's something wrong with my knees.
I was in Minnesota for a time and saw a chiropractor, and he told me to do some dead lifts, which, he assured me, would take care of the underdeveloped muscles. What he didn't address was what, if anything, I can do about the overdeveloped muscles.
If I work out my underdeveloped muscles and have them start sharing the load, would my overdeveloped muscles decrease to normal size from not having to do as much work or would they stay the same, or get even bigger from doing the deadlifts?
It's embarrassing, because I can't lay my legs out straight, or even walk without it being obvious that there's something wrong. What can I do about it?
