Toe Walking

A lot of kids will toe walk if they crave sensory stimulation (they like the bouncing on their toes), have Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, autism or if they just have tight calves. The two most common impairments that I treat with this are working with tight calves and making their foot muscles stronger. This helps them to walk with more stability (they aren’t falling over as much), able to clear their feet from the ground or stairs (again, not falling as much) and reduces the pain associated with having tight calves and feet.
