my son is 3 yrs old, when he began walking around the age of 1 he was walking on his toes. this has not stopped or seem to cause a problem at all in the past. about a week or 2 ago his grandparents took him to a bootery and they pushed down his feet while he was walking to he wouldn't be on his tip toes. they suggested we take him to a podiatrist [which will be a second attempt the first time they told me he will grow out of his toe walking]. ever since going to the bootery he continues to complain how bad his feet hurt him. he had an appointment with a podiatrist today which has been cancelled until aug 9, but i hate seeing my son in so much pain..does anyone have anything helpful hints as to how to make him more comfortable until we can see a doctor and get him checked out?
