Equinus deformities are common in neuromuscular and trauma patients. In contrast, calcaneal gait disorders tend to be overlooked, and few reports characterize and review calcaneal gait problems and disabilities. In the past 3 years, the authors treated 17 patients with calcaneal gait. Six of these cases are reviewed; in addition, the general clinical characteristics of the patient with calcaneal gait pattern are described.
