Knee cartilage erosion pain

In joints, which provide us with movement ability, cartilages are what gives them flexibility. Degenerative processes like normal aging cause cartilage erosion, and often the first joint to suffer from this erosion is the knee. The result: osteoarthritis.

Doctors recommendations for soliotherapy to relife pain

Joints connect two or more bones together, giving them the ability to move. At the end of every bone that reaches the joint, there is cartilage. Cartilages are connective tissues made up of proteins and other materials. The cartilages are characterized by dense fibers and flexibility thanks to their ability to absorb and disperse fluids within the joint.
Sometimes, due to degenerative processes in old age, the cartilages become eroded. This occurs in “accident-prone” joints that carry a lot of weight. For example, the hips, the wrists, and most importantly, the knees. The result: cartilage erosion that leads to osteoarthritis.

What causes osteoarthritis in the knee?

Due to cartilage erosion, direct bone friction is created, and this results in inflammation. This inflammation often leads to pain and limited mobility.

What do you feel when you have osteoarthritis in the knee?

The most common symptom of knee cartilage erosion is pain in the area, especially during movement or lifting. Sometimes, going from sitting to standing also involves intense pain. People with knee osteoarthritis may also feel pain even when they are not moving.
Along with the pain, stiffness appears in the joint and even creaking sounds as the bones meet with each other without proper cushioning of the cartilage. If there is a bout of inflammation, swelling, slight redness, and a localized heat sensation will also appear.

How is knee osteoarthritis diagnosed?

Along with the physical examination performed by your doctor, they may send you do get X-rays, which can indicate the changes in the cartilage structure of the knee. However, sometimes there are similar medical conditions that are not related to the pain of cartilage erosion.

How is knee osteoarthritis treated? Is there any advanced instrumentation that can help?

While there is no cure for osteoarthritis, pain relief is possible. In most cases, the first course of treatment is physical therapy to strengthen the surrounding muscles and ease some weight off the knee. Beyond strengthening your muscles, relieving pain, and “learning” proper movements, you may also need to lose weight, and so you can take off some of the load in the joint. If the pain is severe, painkillers and even injections may be used. Surgery is typically only offered as a last resort.
This is also an opportunity to try out advanced pain relief technologies at home, such as “Solio,” a lightweight, simple, and user-friendly device. “Solio” uses three different types of technologies, including radio waves. These allow penetration into the depth of the tissues. “Solio” is intended to treat a variety of pain from various sources (but not all of them, of course. Please refer to the Consumer Newsletter or the 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 limb.

How is osteoarthritis pain treated with “Solio Alfa Cure Plus”?

Back of the knee: Apply a thin layer of gel on the device, place the device on the area being treated (see picture) and start sliding the device over the entire treatment area shown in the picture for 15-20 minutes once a day. Treatment with the device at level 3 (you must watch the instructional video before using the device for the first time). If excessive heat is felt during the treatment, the treatment area can be slightly increased so that the heat is distributed over a larger area or moved to mode 2.

It is necessary to keep treatment up once a day in order to benefit from the optimal result from the treatment. Do not stand still in one place. Use steady, slow movements throughout the entire duration of the treatment.

Coordination of expectations: in the knee area, you will start to feel relief after 3-7 treatments.  Treatment should be continued until the pain is reduced.

It is also important to take care to rest the pelvis during the treatment days and avoid overload on the area.   

It is important to note that in cases such as osteoarthritis the device does not treat the renewal of the cartilage tissue but only relieves the pain.

How to avoid osteoarthritis pain?

Unlike what experts previously thought, moderate sports activity may actually be beneficial. Make sure to talk to your doctor to find out which exercise is right for you. Recommended activities include Pilates, swimming, walking, and more. It is also essential to maintain a proper body weight.

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".
