Is it okay that my child walks on his toes?

Toe walking is something many young children do for a short period of time.  If your child is exclusively toe walking, it may be a sign of other biomechanical or nerve problems.  A podiatrist is best trained to identify the cause of your child’s toe walking.  There are a variety of orthosis and other simple treatments that can be used to correct this.
