Toe Walking

Toe Walking

Toe walking is a common condition seen in children, where they walk on their tiptoes rather than using a typical heel-to-toe gait. While some children outgrow toe walking naturally, persistent toe walking can sometimes indicate an underlying issue. At Children’s Podiatry, we have a special interest in diagnosing and addressing toe walking, providing expert care to ensure your child’s healthy and confident walking pattern.

Understanding Toe Walking:

Toe walking refers to a walking pattern where a child consistently walks on their toes, often without putting their heels down to the ground. While it is a normal developmental stage for some children, persistent toe walking beyond a certain age may require professional evaluation and intervention.
