tip toe's
My daughter is 10 years old and have been walking on her toe's regularly since she started walking at 9 months. I have noticed that she does this more often lately to the extend that she walks on her toes more than what she walks normal. If any one has any suggestions or knows a good surgeon that deals with problems like these . . . please help.

Chantall, I doubt that it will require surgery, but the best person to see would be an orthopaedic surgeon. Good luck.
