April is Foot Health Awareness Month

April is Foot Health Awareness Month, So Do Your Feet a Favor

Z-CoiL® Footwear Brings Welcome Relief to Sore Feet

(Albuquerque, NM) Your feet take tremendous abuse. The impact of walking delivers a force that is two to three times your body weight, and three to five times your body weight when running! No wonder the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMS) has declared April to be Foot Health Awareness Month, to focus attention on this hard-working, yet often-neglected part of the body. And the cure for these poor suffering feet may be as simple as finding the right shoes, namely Z-CoiL® Pain Relief Footwear™.

"I have been off work for over one year, now going on two because of plantar fasciitis. I have had three different podiatrists as well, numerous orthotics, then I was given a series of shots, from cortisone to steroids and even shots to dissolve nerves in my heels. Nothing worked!" says Jovonne R. of San Bernardino, CA. By chance, she discovered Z-CoiL® Pain Relief Footwear™, and she says these shoes have made all the difference.

"Your Z-CoiL® shoes are a miracle!" Jovonne declares. "Now I actually look forward to going to the mall or to any function just to walk around. I don’t go places and just sit anymore; I’m up and moving or socializing.

People don’t realize that they don’t have to go through life with foot pain. I can’t say enough about how your shoes have helped me."

These unique-looking shoes with a conical-shaped steel coil in the heel have dramatically changed the lives of thousands of people who report either complete relief or a significant reduction in pain when wearing their Z-CoiL® footwear. The patented Z-CoiL® heel is designed to absorb up to 50% of the impact from walking or running, while delivering a 40 to 50% energy return. This coil-suspension system works in conjunction with a builtin orthotic that equalizes pressure distribution across the mid-foot, thereby reducing the pain caused by heel spurs or plantar fasciitis. Z-CoiL® shoes also feature thick neoprene cushioning under the forefoot and a permanent flex line at the ball of the foot, plus a rocker-bottom sole that gently assists each step. Such total foot support and cushioning work together to reduce the shock of impact to the body. And less impact means less pain.

Many podiatrists and orthopedic specialists agree. "I now commonly recommend Z-CoiL® shoes to my patients for foot, ankle, leg, knee, hip, and all back pain," says Aaron B. Kaufman, a Doctor of Osteopathy in Albuquerque, New Mexico, who wears the shoes himself. "It’s hard to think about wearing any other shoes now because these feel so good. I tell my patients that I’m addicted to my Z-CoiL® shoes!"
