You need physiotherapist for further help...He/She can guide you more in my opinion.


Some children walk on tiptoes till 5 yrs of age and they have no medical problems.
Some children have short tendocalcaneus by birth thats why they walk on tip toes.
If ur child is mentally fine so u just need a orthopedic surgeon's opinion regarding short tendocalcaneus, and if there is no problem with tendocalcaneus then no need to worry.
Try a good quality sandel or slipper when child walks.
