KUTV: Can Shoes Relieve Foot and Leg Pain?
KUTV: Can Shoes Relieve Foot and Leg Pain?It's an unusual pair of footwear but some swear it's making a difference with certain kinds of foot and leg pain. Debbie Worthen explains in this Healthy Living report.
Ok so they're not a fashion statement but loyal customers of Z-Shoes say it's a small price to pay for relief they feel from things like foot, leg and back pain.
Lara Kjersted is the owner and chef at the Singing Cricket restaurant. She's on her feet all day and says these shoes have helped relieve pain she's had for years.
“I'm there 10-12 hours cooking and supervising. These shoes do wonders. I don’t have ankle, knee and hip problems,” said Lara.
The coil spring is mounted to a solid orthodic that from the ball of your foot to the heel, your foot does not flex or bend which helps eliminate Planter Facitis or heel spurs and reduces skeletal impact by 50-percent.
Retailers say Z-Shoes won't fix problems, but can help people feel better and say many experience immediate relief.
“Most people know within a minute of putting the shoe on if it's going to make a difference for them,” said Richard Redlein, owner Z-Best pain relief footwear.
I am a manager in a Super Market and I am on my feet 8 to 10 hours a day. I use to come home and soak my feet because of the pain. I started wearing Z-Coil shoes several months ago and found they made a change in how my feet have felt after being on them all day. I no longer have to soak my feet at night when I get home. My feet feel better and I don't have the pain. I recommend anyone with pain or no pain in their feet to try Z-Coil and see if they make their feet feel better.
