Hi there!

Toe walking id often due to structural causes and it is unlikely for it to correct spontaneously. Since it has been some years with the issue, a surgical correction is likely to be required. I would suggest getting this evaluated by an orthopedician for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this helps.

Take care!

hi.  go to an orthopedic specialist. I was a toe walker, but I have mild cerebral palsy, so I could not even toe talk until I was wearing a brace on my right leg. I would go see a specialist as these things can be corrected...

Actually I had it for years my mother use to call me Ms. Tippytoes I thought I would always walk like that but I just focused on keeping my foot flat when I sit down so when I stand up my feet could be use to it being a little flat and I did that everyday and eventually my feet started getting closer to the ground,and now I was walk fine you would have never thought I walked on my toes majority of my life.
