Default Stick insect has bent legs

One of my sticks (Giant Thorny/Trachyaretaon Bruekneri) had a molt last night and now 3 of her legs are curved weirdly, Iíve never seen this with any other sticks Iíve kept. Is this a molting issue or does she have some sort of deficiency? I feed them a variety of different plants (usually hazel, dogrose, ivy, and brambles) so I donít know what else I could do with their diet if it is something like that. She can still walk and climb, she just struggles a bit.
You can kinda see it in two of her legs here
