Knee Pain: Everything you wanted to know

Think of your knee as an engineering marvel. Its complexity allows us to have a wide range of movement, but it can also become a continuous source of problems for many people. When one of your knee’s components gets jammed, injured, or “fatigued,” the issue manifests itself as pain. So, how is knee pain diagnosed?

Short and sweet

The knee’s greater advantage is also its greatest disadvantage. In essence, the knee is an anatomically elaborate axial joint, and it owes its ability to move and carry weight to an array of muscles, ligaments, and meniscus that work together. However, its “engineering complexity” can also become a source of many problems when one of the components is disrupted, injured, or ” fatigued.”

What causes knee pain?

As we walk up the stairs, our knees are forced to carry a load that weighs four (!) times our body weight, and that is just one example of the burden placed on these joints.
Due to the same anatomical complexity, pain of various kinds can occur in the knee, resulting from a variety of problems that are not always easily diagnosed. These include external injuries, tears or ruptures, inflammation, tendon infections, and more.

How does knee pain feel like?

Because everybody experiences pain differently, it’s hard to accurately describe how knee pain feels like. In most cases, knee pain will be mild to moderate, though it may change from person to person. This pain may also appear anywhere in the knee, including the front, back, and sides. Sometimes, knee pain can limit your mobility.
Most people with knee issues don’t experience pain all day long; instead, the pain only when performing specific actions like bending over, cycling, and more.

Knee Pain: When to see a doctor?

Consult your doctor if your knee pain is accompanied by redness or swelling. The same is true if the pain lasts a long time. If you’ve had an external injury or are experiencing severe movement restriction, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

How is knee pain diagnosed?

Knee pain is diagnosed by performing an external physical examination of the knee. X-rays and blood tests to detect inflammatory markers in the knee are also used. Sometimes the solution can be reached at the GP level without reaching an orthopedist directly.

How long will my knee hurt?

The human knee is very complex, and so are its potential sources of pain. Often, knee aches go away on their own without any medical interventions or treatments. Other times you may need to seek medical help. All in all, your knee can hurt for two days, or it can hurt for two months or more, depending on what’s causing the issue.

How is knee pain treated?

If you have mild pain that doesn’t require medical attention, it is recommended that you practice active rest. Active rest doesn’t mean lying motionless in bed for days, but moving gently and paying attention to your body signals.
When you are in pain – and in the future, to prevent the recurrence of pain – it is recommended to strengthen the muscles in the area. This is done through moderate exercises tailored to your condition, age, and ability.
It is also worth mentioning that your body weight can put a lot of pressure on your knees, so if you are overweight, even a reduction of three or four percent of body weight may be beneficial.
Other treatments include elastic bandaging and physical therapy. In extreme situations, surgery will be required.

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
