Re: Habit of always tiptoeing barefoot and in high heels

This sounds like her calf muscle has contracted . The Achilles tendon has shortened and she is not comfortable with the foot flat on the floor. This is an adaptation to wearing the high heels.

As far as treatment goes, if she continues wearing the high heels, then she will continue in this manner. Stretching the calf muscles, wearing a night splint are all possible treatments. She would have to be very conscientious to do these. If she does not have pain, then a surgery would not likely be necessary.
