Will my daughter have long term effects for always walking on her tiptoes?

My daughter has always walked on her tiptoes, and now I'm worried. She can't walk flat on her feet without saying it hurts?

I agree with Dove. "Toe walking" can cause shortened calf muscles. The doc can check her out and see if corrections need to be made.

Take her to the doctor. Walking on their tiptoes is a normal stage IF they CAN stand and walk normal as well. If she can't do this without pain... she needs checked out as soon as possible.
