Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Many people think that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition of our time when we have become so used to moving our hands and fingers up and down a screen, a mouse, or a keyboard. But the fact of the matter is that carpal tunnel syndrome has been causing pain to humans since long before the invention of the mouse.

What causes carpal tunnel syndrome?

To understand what causes carpal tunnel syndrome, let’s review some basic anatomy: in the palm of your hand, there is a narrow canal where tendons pass. These tendons allow us to move our fingers. But in some situations, the tendons can expand, resulting in pressure on the median (central) nerve that causes pain.
This is mainly due to repetitive movements, but also due to fractures, bruises, or inflammation. Genetic predisposition may also increase the likelihood of carpal tunnel syndrome.

What does carpal tunnel syndrome feel like?

While pain is the most common symptom of carpal tunnel syndrome, it is not the only one. This condition is sometimes also accompanied by a numb or tingling sensation in the palm. The feelings intensify during the night, and can also be felt in the fingers, forearms, and biceps. Sometimes, the pain will “climb” up your hands.

How common is carpal tunnel syndrome?

Carpal tunnel syndrome is not very common. In fact, it is estimated that only 3 to 4 percent of the population will experience it. Women are twice as likely as men to have the syndrome.

How is carpal tunnel syndrome diagnosed?

Your doctor will ask you about the symptoms and check your palm: its motility, the focus of the pain, and more. It will also detect muscle weakness if any.

How is carpal tunnel syndrome treated? Can advanced technology help?

The good news is that sometimes carpal tunnel syndrome can be healed without any treatment or intervention.
However, after you have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome, there are different therapies available to help with the pain, the most common one being a brace to limit the mobility if your wrist. Hot compresses can also help you ease the pain. Medical treatments include anti-inflammatory drugs, cortisone injections, or referral to physiotherapy.
It is also essential to adapt your working environment to ease the pressure off your wrist, like using an ergonomic keyboard and mouse.
Only in less common cases will a surgical intervention be required. This is quite effective, but it takes about a month and more to recover.
As a complementary treatment for carpal tunnel syndrome, it is highly recommended to adopt advanced pain relief technologies using home appliances. The best of its kind? “Solio,” which stands out for its user-friendliness and grip comfort. “Solio” is the only device that uses radio waves that penetrate deep inside the wrist tissue.

Medical and professional reviews on Solio Alpha Plus

“It is sometimes difficult to accurately diagnose orthopedic conditions or injuries that cause pain, and those that have been diagnosed, it is sometimes difficult to treat without surgical means that are usually applied only to the most extreme situations of pain. As a result, many of my patients are in constant search of non-surgical solutions to pain that will be effective, and drug-independent. To explore an energy-based alternative, I decided to use Solio Alpha Plus to treat five of my patients with chronic ‘tennis elbow’ pain. The response was very encouraging. Not only did the patients report fewer episodes of pain and reduced pain, but also in follow-up tests some of them showed significant improvement and healing.” Prof. Yoav Matan, Director of the Orthopedic Department, Hadassah Medical Center Mount Scopus, Israel

“I am familiar with the use of soft laser, LED, and bipolar RF energies for a wide range of applications, especially in indications where inflammation and stimulation are required and healing processes are encouraged, therefore, I was not surprised when I came across a combination of these energies in Solio Alpha Plus for self-care. I recommend Solio Alpha Plus to some of my patients, as part of their postoperative rehabilitation process. All patients who used Solio Alpha Plus reported a shorter recovery time and a smooth healing process after surgery.”.Stephen from the Netherlands, MD for Plastic Surgery and Reconstruction Surgery, SpaMedica, Toronto, Canada

“I have tried Solio Alpha Plus on a number of patients who are actively involved in sports and tennis to treat ‘tennis elbow’ and lower back / neck pain. I was very impressed with the results and decided to let all my patients who are in pain try the device instead of using the creams or various medications I prescribe. Most patients experienced a marked decrease in the level of pain and their recovery time was significantly reduced. They all reported that the device was very easy to use, and none of them reported any side effects or adverse reactions. “ Tina S. Ulster, MD, Director of the Washington Institute for Dermatological Laser Surgery Georgetown University Medical Center

“During my dermatological treatments, I come across many patients who turn to me due to skin pains and other skin problems that cause pain. Treatment with various medications, or injections, is not always recommended – whether due to allergies, various side effects, or other personal reasons. After treating with Solio Alpha Plus, very positive results were observed in relieving the pain of my patients. If necessary, medication therapy can be combined with device therapy. The Solio Alpha Plus device can aid in the healing process, shorten the duration of the pain, and speed up pain relief. Because this device produces 3 energies – LLLT, IR, and Bi-Polar RF, it can resolve a variety of pains on the surface of the skin, and in varying depth layers as well as up to the dermis layer of the skin. Solio Alpha Plus has greatly helped my patients and the resolution of the problems and pains they have suffered”, Dr. Judith Hellman, Clinical Professor of Dermatology, Mount Sinai Hospital, New York, USA
