There are 28 bones and 30 joints in the foot and ankle. That means there is a lot of places where joint inflammation—arthritis—can affect the foot and ankle, causing pain and limiting mobility. But by addressing impact, the major contributing factor to osteoarthritis in the foot, the right shoes can provide effective arthritis pain relief.
Understanding Arthritis in the Foot
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that can affect any joint in the body, but hands and feet are among the most common places people experience the pain and stiffness. In the foot, specifically, arthritis symptoms are most commonly felt in the joint:
- Where the ankle and shinbone meet
- Where the big toe meets the rest of the foot
- At the heel bone
- At the medial and/or lateral side of the mid-foot
Arthritis in the foot can make each step painful, leading many people to give up their active lifestyles.
Impact Reduction for Foot Pain Relief
Arthritis is often the result of wear and tear of the tissues that cushion each joint. Excessive impact—the stress forces delivered over years of walking, running and standing on unforgiving surfaces—can wear down these tissues even faster. Continually absorbing and transferring impact with compromised cushioning exacerbates the pain of arthritis.
The key to arthritis pain relief in the foot (and all the way up the kinetic chain) is impact reduction. Shoes that effectively diminish the forces delivered to the foot can help make walking, running and standing more comfortable. Unfortunately, most major brands of shoes do not have adequate compression space to provide the impact reduction necessary to deliver real arthritis pain relief.
Z-CoiL® Pain Relief Footwear®, on the other hand, are engineered to provide arthritis pain relief. The patented technology and innovative design reduce impact by up to 60% (according to tests conducted by the US Department of Energy). The thick mid-sole cushioning and rocker bottom sole further enhance comfort and facilitate s smooth gliding gait.
