Press Release: Revolutionary Pain-Relief Resource Debuts at the Puyallup Fair

Washington Podiatrist/Surgeon Bringing Z-CoiLs to Thousands of Pain Sufferers

(Puyallup, WA)— Washington residents now have a new way of walking, with people talking about a revolutionary pain-relief resource. Z-CoiL® Pain Relief Footwear™, specifically engineered to relieve foot, leg and back pain, is often called wacky, ugly or weird, but for those who suffer, pain is always uglier. Dr. Lotchie Kerch, a podiatric physician and foot surgeon for over twenty-years, has been providing Z-CoiL pain relief footwear in the Seattle area for several years and is temporarily expanding to bring this noteworthy resource to the Puyallup Fair, located in the Crafts and More Hall (Photo: Booth #952) through September 26.

Pain sufferers across western Washington are touting the benefits of Z-CoiL footwear, and Dr. Kerch has been working hard to introduce this remarkable pain-relieving resource. The footwear is becoming invaluable to people in careers that require extensive hours spent walking or standing and also to people who suffer from conditions such as plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, arthritis or bone-on-bone knee issues.

Z-CoiL Footwear features a unique conical-coil steel spring under the heel, which absorbs up to 50 percent of the impact from walking or running, according to studies by Los Alamos National Laboratories and the U.S. Department of Energy. A rigid, built-in orthotic cradles the mid-foot, equalizing pressure distribution to reduce the occurrence of heel spurs or plantar fasciitis, while extra cushioning at the forefoot and a permanent flex line at the ball of the foot improve comfort in the metatarsal area. This total foot support means less impact to the body, and less impact means less pain.

Al Gallegos, a 73-year-old maverick and Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear inventor and company founder, persevered for years to develop this revolutionary line of footwear. These “funny-looking shoes with the spring in the heel” have dramatically changed the lives of thousands of people who report either complete relief or a significant reduction in pain when wearing Z-CoiL footwear.

“The Puyallup Fair is an excellent opportunity to introduce Z-CoiLs to more people throughout the area,” Dr. Kerch says. “We are seeing hundreds of lives changed with Z-CoiL footwear and we want to be able to help so many more.”

Dr. Kerch operates two Z-CoiL footwear locations in Seattle. Dr. Z-CoiL is located at 1764 NW 56th St. and Your 2 Feet is at 1201 Pine St. To learn more about Z-CoiL footwear visit Dr. Kerch’s Web site at, call (206) 838-7338 or stop by the Z-CoiL booth at the Puyallup Fair exhibition hall through September 26.

A small company on a mission, Z-CoiL Footwear is gaining a tremendous and loyal following as word of its pain relief benefits is spreading, with 200 authorized dealers nationwide.
