how old is your daughter
More than half of young children who toe walk will stop doing so on their own by about age 5
usually as she gets older and adds more body mass, her body weight will help stretch the scar tissue in her ankle and will correct for the toe walking.
toe walking on just one foot can beg awkward for her body mechanics.
skipping means she is still trying to keep weight off of that food.
having her wear high top shoes may help her have more of a correct foot position when she walks
is she able to wear shoes or boots with that foot?
