Individuals more than 2.3 meters tall often have to walk with canes. Never the less, these fine details of medicine were not well known in the Bronze Age and people loved to embellish and embellish on embellishments in storytelling. As such it is little surprise that Giants, people who are of a much greater scale than normal Humans, are so common in mythology.
