Six children who were habitual toe-walkers were studied using electromyographic techniques. In the initial gait evaluation, the muscle synergy pattern was found to be abnormal during the toe-toe gait as well as during the heel-toe gait. After treatment with casts, each patient had a normal electromyographic pattern during heel-toe gait.
