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. Solio handles a variety of pain types, but not all of them, of course. Please refer to the Consumer Newsletter or information on this site for more information. When you use Solio, you will feel the healing process thanks to the combination of technologies and the sense of heat that penetrates deep inside the wrist.

How can I prevent carpal tunnel syndrome in the future?

As mentioned, an ergonomic, customized work environment, along with joint strengthening exercises, may prevent the recurrence of the pain.

Stop the pain now with Solio – the only pain-relieving radio wave technology device.

I’m new to this technology, so I did a lot of research before I went ahead. I bought Solio based on the technology more than anything else.

No regrets here.

I bought it for my carpal tunnel syndrome. This is a very specific pain, but it affects my ability to work on my computer, and the pain is sometimes so bad that I find it hard to sleep well. I would pay anything to get help, but getting it at home when I want it is even better. I feel much better. Thank you.

I bought this device for my carpal tunnel. I go to a chiropractic doctor who suggested that I might find a pain relief device helpful. I decided to look at different technologies. Eventually, I ordered this device knowing I can return it if it doesn’t help me. I was diligent in doing my daily sessions. I’m still surprised by how much relief I got from it. It is high quality and easy to use. I keep it out so I remember to use it every day even now. It saves me appointments, and I can use it whenever I need.

I hope this review is helpful.

Since the pandemic, I don’t leave the house if I don’t absolutely have to. I got this from my daughter. My first impression when I removed this unit from the box was that I can do it. It looks nice, it’s lightweight, there is no need to charge or read complicated manuals. I have pain in my wrists and joints due to carpal tunnel and arthritis. I like that I can plug it in and use it immediately when I need it, and it has been very helpful.

A little over a week since I started using this on my carpal tunnel, and I can say movement is less painful. I was on Ibuprofen daily to help the pain, and now this is my go-to solution rather than medication. We use technology for so many things, including in medicine, so it’s time for home solutions for pain, especially since COVID. I also love that I can use it without needing someone else to help me with it. I’m happy with how effective it is for my needs.

I’ve looked online to find the best pain relief machine that would really be helpful. I ordered it and it came in quickly. It has clear instructions on how to use, and comes with a slider gel that you apply on the skin. It turned out to be pleasant. The unit runs smoothly on the skin, with no need for adhesive pads. For me, it’s really soothing and my carpal tunnel pain is much better. I feel it is even more efficient than the TENS unit that my physiotherapist used on me. I’m happy with the purchase.

Doctor Testimonials

"I am familiar with the use of LLLT, LED and Bi-polar RF energies for a wide range of applications, especially in indications where reduction of inflammation and stimulation of healing are required. Therefore, I was not surprised when I came across the same combination of energies utilized for pain reduction and healing in Solio Alfa Plus – a self- treatment device. I recommended Solio Alfa Plus to some of my patients, as part of their post-surgery recovery regimen. All the patients who used Solio Alfa Plus reported smoother healing and shorter downtime following surgery."Stephen Mulholland, M.D. Plastic and reconstructive surgery, SpaMedica, Toronto, Canada

"I tried Solio Alfa Plus on a number of patients who are actively involved in sports and in tennis for the treatment of Tennis elbow(/lower back/neck). I was so impressed with the results that I decided to let all of my patients with complaints about pain try it too instead of various topical creams/drugs that I prescribe to them. Most of these patients experienced marked reduction of pain, and their healing time reduced significantly. They all reported that the device was very easy to use, and none of them reported side effects or adverse reactions."*Tina S. Alster, M.D.Director, Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery Clinical Professor of Dermatology, Georgetown University Medical Center

"In my dermatology practice, patients come to me with many different skin problems and resulting pains. As it happens, medications, be they topical, ingested or injected, are not always the best way to proceed, due to a particular patient’s allergies, or possible bad reactions, side effects, or any number of other reasons. In those cases, my patients have had very positive results after using Solio Alfa Plus therapy for alleviating various forms of topical skin pains. The device can also be used in conjunction with medications since it can assist the healing process and speed up pain relief. Because this device produces 3 energies - LLLT, IR and Bi-polar RF, it can target problems on the surface of the skin, as well as all the way down to the dermis layer of the skin, which means that Solio Alfa Plus is applicable to many of the problems that my patients suffer from".
