Idiopathic toe-walking (ITW) is a relatively common condition worldwide in children. ITW children are diagnosed by excluding all known causes of toe-walking, including neuromuscular or orthopaedic disorders and physical injuries. As a consequence of toe-walking, ITW children tend to develop shortened calf muscles which may lead to a number of problems such as improper balance of the body caused by a slightly shifted centre of gravity. Currently, the severity of toe-walking in ITW children is… CONTINUE READING
