One of the other winter campers here at Havasu Falls was wearing Z-Coil shoes which peaked my natural curiosity. He claimed that they had helped his back pain tremendously. So a couple of weeks ago, Teddy and I drove up to Bullhead City to the nearest Z-Coil shoe store to try them out. I felt that they might make a difference in my knee and Achilles tendon pain. We tried them in the store and finally decided to purchase a pair for each of us. Teddy adapted to hers immediately and says that they make a world of difference on her daily five-mile walk. For me, however it took about a week to adapt to them. My Achilles tendon pain in my right ankle went away immediately but they caused some shin pain which went away after about a week. I was told to expect this, however.
I don’t know if it is my imagination or not but my knees seem better as well.
Only time will tell.
