    Yes of course it is, the question is self defining. Idiopathic means arising from an unknown cause, a disease having an unknown cause. Therefore once a disease's cause is discovered then it is no longer unknown:dizzy:

    It tends to be idiopathic to most providers because they have not studied the reflexes inherent in altered posture. I repeatedly find unilateral toe walking with a fixed spinal rotation. usually the spinal rotation is compensated with a pelvic rotation and compensatory apparent short leg compensated by the toe walking. Bilateral toe walking is usually compensation for a fixation of the center of gravity too far forward just as heel walking is compensation for fixation of the center of gravity too far back.
