A 23 year old female cabin crew who has purser heel pain for 6 months which begins to effect her walking and attendance at work.
The GP gave her a flat shoe chitty and told her to roll a tennis ball across the sole of her foot morning and night.
After a few days the pain began to get worse, although some relief from the tennis ball.
The female was then assessed by the in house Aviation Podiatrist who advised getting back into a small heeled shoe and prescribed medical insoles which dealt with underlying cause of her foot pain. Advised to use in all work shoes going forward.
Two weeks later the female was back at work pain free.
