Q.

Walking on toes

Hi Pead

Please advise what problems would arise from my 3 year old walking on his toes. I keep telling him to walk heel to toe, but he is constantly walling on his toes? When he was younger he never used a walking ring? Please advise on what I can do.

This is a fairly common problem. It is important to take your son to see a physiotherapist for examination and treatment.
