The body goes through a lot of changes during pregnancy. Women know to expect morning sickness and back aches, but they don’t always know about changes in the feet and lower body joint pain. But the right footwear can help women increase their comfort and safely continue some of their favorite activities, like walking and jogging, during pregnancy.
Pregnancy and Impact
Weight gain during pregnancy increases impact up and down the kinetic chain. The lower back, hips, knees, ankles and feet bear more weight, even while at rest. When moving, feet and lower body joints must absorb and transfer forces equivalent to twice your body weight. With more body weight, more impact is delivered to the joints. More impact means more wear on the joints, more aches and pains. Women who want to stay active during pregnancy face a higher risk of impact-induced injury.
How Z-CoiLs Help
Z-CoiL® Pain Relief Footwear® can help increase the comfort of standing, walking, even jogging on unforgiving surfaces during pregnancy. The patented technology and innovative design significantly reduces impact—by up to 60% with every step (according to tests conducted by the US Department of Energy). The impact reduction provided by the coil system offsets the impact increase resulting from normal weight gain.
The coil system protects joints from overuse injury and provides an energy-return to fight fatigue. The spring-loaded heel and forefoot rocker bottom facilitate a smooth, gliding gait to minimize jarring movements, and that translates to immediate lower body joint pain relief.
Comfort and Style
All Z-CoiL products come with a 30-day risk-free trial. If your Z-CoiL shoes do not provide the pain relief and enhanced comfort you expected, we’ll take them back, no questions asked.
