What causes fibromyalgia?

Currently, the causes of the syndrome are unknown. However, there are factors that may slightly increase the risk of fibromyalgia. For example, virus-induced infections and sometimes mood disorders like depression, chronic stress, and anxiety.

What does fibromyalgia feel like?

Fibromyalgia pain will most often be spread throughout the body, so you may feel it in various muscles and connective tissues like the hands, feet, shoulder, back, neck, and more. Another common symptom is extreme sensitivity to touch in those painful places. Fibromyalgia usually comes with sleep problems, physical and mental exhaustion, abdominal pain and irritability and more.

How common is fibromyalgia?

According to statistics, about four percent of the population has fibromyalgia syndrome. Fibromyalgia is more common in women than in men.

How is fibromyalgia diagnosed?

Currently, there are no blood, urine or imaging tests (X-ray, MRI, etc.) that can confirm that a fibromyalgia diagnosis. For this reason, the diagnosis will be done by physical examination and comprehensive questioning about the symptoms, their intensity, their duration, and specially their location in the body. This is also why fibromyalgia can go on for a long time without being diagnosed or mistaken by other conditions like arthritis.

How does fibromyalgia last?

Though it may cause severe severe pain and exhaustion, fibromyalgia does not usually get worse over the years. This means that the symptoms of fibromyalgia are relatively stable, although they may stop for a while and come back again.

How is fibromyalgia treated? Can advanced technology help?

The secret to treating fibromyalgia pain lies in combining several solutions simultaneously. Often, treatment will be a mixture of central nervous system medications and recommendations for moderate exercise (usually cardiovascular and moderate strength training).
Many patients resort to sports such as swimming or walking. Some researchers believe that Tai Chi practice may also be very helpful in relieving fibromyalgia. Other solutions include acupuncture, water movement therapies as well as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT).
As mentioned earlier, fibromyalgia pain occurs simultaneously in different parts of the body, so another effective solution are at-home pain relief devices like “Solio,” which uses a combination of advanced technologies to ease pain. These technologies include soft laser, infrared light, and radio waves that allow for deeper tissue penetration.
Solio is designed various types of pain from different sources (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 can feel the pain healing process thanks to the combination of technologies and the sense of warmth that penetrates deep inside the painful tissue.

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".
