Toe Walking Treatment in Adelaide
Toe walking, also known as idiopathic toe walking, is a condition in which a child walks on their toes without putting their heels down.
It is common in young children and is usually not a problem, but it can be a sign of underlying issues with the feet or legs. If left untreated, toe walking can lead to other foot and leg problems in children.
Symptoms Associated with Toe Walking:
Symptoms of this type of walking may include pain and discomfort in the feet and ankles, especially after prolonged standing or walking. Children with toe walking may also have difficulty participating in physical activities and may experience fatigue and difficulty with balance.
