Would frankly be surprised if many pediatricians were recommending attendance at preschool for a child with pneumonia. ...Read more
Check heel cords: Toe walking can be seen in a number of preschoolers. Child needs exam to rule out shortened heel cords (Achilles tendons) that may need stretching or occasionally surgery to allow lengthening. I would also evaluate knee (patellar) reflexes and a reflex called an anal wink. IF either of these are missing, the child may have a tethered spinal cord which requires neurosurgery to release tether. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
