Taming Idiopathic Toe Walking is a ground breaking new book that provides a non-invasive, efficient and effective treatment strategy for children and adolescents who display atypical toe walking. Written by renowned Occupational Therapist, Ileana S. McCaigue, OTR/L, the book serves as a definitive manual for children and adolescents who display atypical toe walking behaviors. Idiopathic toe walking is often associated with Autism Spectrum Disorders, ADHD, Specific Learning Disability, Developmental Delays and other disabilities with sensory processing difficulties that can occur with typical children as well. Inspired by the overcoming of toe-walking by numerous children during her years of practice, McCaigue’s professional expertise and personal experiences are fused into a vitally powerful resource.
This book offers an alternative treatment strategy to “calm” the toes, and enable a typical walking pattern in those challenged with idiopathic toe walking. The ultimate goal is the prevention of tendon shortening and resultant limited motions of the ankles and feet from prolonged toe walking that can ultimately lead to the need for injections, bracing or at worst, surgery, to remediate the muscular imbalance. McCaigue’s mission is to help children in the least restrictive and most effective and efficient way. Taming Idiopathic Toe Walking is available to purchase on Amazon.com.
