Discussions that mention botox

Open to All Other Health Topics board

My 10 year old son is a habitual toe-walker. He does not have CP. He can walk on his feet when concentrating but if not, always walks on his toes. Three years ago we tried casts for 6 weeks - no success. Doctor now has suggested Botox shots, then casts for two weeks, then 6 months in braces. I would like to hear from other parents whose children have had this problem and your experience with Botox, casting and braces. Has anyone had success without Botox just using casts and braces? Look forward to hearing from you. Thanks!!!!!
