Treating Pediatric Toe Walking – Is it Idiopathic?

Pediatric idiopathic toe walking is commonly treated with AFOs. In this course, we will discuss the primary reasons why a child might toe walk and what to consider when evaluating for orthotic intervention. We will discuss multiple patients and show multiple solutions to treating “idiopathic” toe walking. Video and gait data from the Zeno Walkway will be shown to support orthotic interventions. Orthotic intervention included Surestep SMOs, Toe Walking SMOs and AFOs. We will also discuss how to utilize the orthoses during therapy sessions and at home to facilitate heel-toe gait patterns.
