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.

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
