I know this sounds extreme but we have a son who was the same and at 6 years old was still toe walking on one foot. WE had done years of physio then we saw a specialist who injected botox into his calf (not sure which muscle exactly ) and put him in plaster for six weeks and then we never looked back.
I know that sounds extreme but when they have toe walked for so long their achillies and everything else nodoubt has shortened and no longer able to stretch it to walk without pain and being relaxed.

So you could be trying everything just as we did but maybe that is not going to help without this treatment.

Food for thought good luck.
