    Cylie:

    Essentially, I’m not disagreeing with you on the fact that there is a probable neurological component in ITW, which would technically mean that it’s not idiopathic. However, as that idea is still only a likely probability and that we cant actually diagnose what the actual neurological component is yet, I’d say from a clinical stand point, Idiopathic Toe Walking is still the best terminology.

    Whichever way we look at this, ITW, would be a difficult one to diagnose, as the obvious underlying pathologies have to be excluded first. I do agree with you that there must be some causative neurological component that we obviously can’t test for yet that causes toe walking. What I don’t agree with though, is your assumption that ITW is not idiopathic if an equinus is present when we both agree that it’s a secondary phenomenon.

    Your four year study sounds really interesting. Perhaps there may never be an exclusive neurological factor which I’m getting at but rather a complex sequela associated with the neurological system which causes the phenomenon we currently refer to as ITW. Good luck with getting your material published soon.

    I spent time at the Nassau CP center in where Morton Kurzweil DPM treated the gait of CP patients with appropriate padding. The evaluation was whether the hands would come down or not.
    Paul Jordan DPM was there the following year doing a podopediatric fellowship. From his experience there he developed the TRAFO (Tone Reducing Ankle Foot Orthosis). This was made at Langer laboratories until Wernick split with Langer. Jordan was working there as a consultant seeing patients from around the world with great results.
