Foot pain is one of the most common complaints of overweight individuals. And for many people, foot pain interferes with an active lifestyle, making it even harder for an overweight person to get the exercise needed to lose weight. But effective and natural foot pain relief is available in the right shoes.
The Link between Weight and Foot Pain
With every step, your foot must absorb and transfer stress forces equivalent to approximately twice your body weight. For overweight individuals, the impact is multiplied, increasing the risk (and prevalence) of impact-induced injuries that cause foot pain, such as:
Excessive impact paired with improperly fitting shoes also increase the likelihood of developing Morton’s Neuroma, hammertoes and bunions, which cause foot pain, too.
Natural Foot Pain Relief
Because most foot pain is the result of excessive impact, impact reduction is the key to foot pain relief. Z-CoiL® Pain Relief Footwear® delivers the most impact reduction of any shoe available. The patented coil system reduces impact by up to 60% according to tests conducted by the US Department of Energy.
Pain relief and foot health is further promoted by:
- The built-in Z-Orthotic™, which keeps ligaments from stretching beyond their natural threshold.
- The extra wide toe box that allows adequate foot space.
- The forefoot flex line that allows the foot to bend at the natural position (ball of the foot) during the gait cycle.
Z-CoiLs can also be custom fit to balance abnormal gaits (over-pronation, supination) to ensure that stress forces are properly transferred along the foot and up the kinetic chain to treat and prevent impact-induced injuries.
The Link between Weight and Pain-Free Movement
Foot pain can keep people off their feet, and that prevents overweight individuals from getting the exercise they need to lose weight. But with natural pain relief from the right shoes, overweight individuals can enjoy pain-free movement and move toward their fitness goals.
