Instead of trying to re-write / summarize the basics of an

article on the subject, let me point you to an online article that

goes through the different possibilities. Written by Dr. Stephen

Stricker, it discusses the evaluation and treatment of children

with tiptoe gait. He talks about habitual toe walking and also mild

spastic diplegic cerebral palsy, as 2 quite common conditions. Then

he goes on to discuss the less-common possibilities (such as

autism, schizophrenia and finally spinal cord anomalies and

juvenile type multiple sclerosis). Go to:
