Toe Walking

A lot of kid like to walk on their toes. They do so to make themselves taller. Generally it is off no consequences and they get over it. However, toe walking can also be due to a more serious problem so each case of toe walking does need to be taken seriously.

Toe walking is common in conditions like autism and cerebral palsy, but a number of other developmental and behavior problems can underpin it. If the child can get the heel to the ground easily and all the usual developmental milestones are reached, then the chances are that the toe walking is not a problem.
