This resource is a guide for therapists and caregivers to understand some of the foundations that contribute to toe walking, what to look out for, as well as what to do when it becomes a habit.

In this guide you will learn:

  • What toe walking is
  • Common causes
  • The role of occupational therapy and physical therapy in toe walking
  • How to talk to your medical provider about toe walking
  • Common treatments, activities, and stretches for toe walking (all of which must be under the care of a licensed professional)

Prolonged and long term use of toe walking can have negative impacts on the child. When toe walking becomes a habit, it interferes with a child’s musculoskeletal system as well as the advancement of muscular/mobility development and skills.
