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?

Doctors recommendations for soliotherapy to relife pain

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.

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.

I purchased the device 2 months ago for knee pain that has been bothering me for several months. I understood the logic behind the technology, but I was still skeptical. I decided to try it out, and I’m so happy I did!

I don’t like the feeling of needing drugs for my everyday life, but the pain really affected me. This is so much better than using medications! It’s not a one-time magic solution for chronic knee pain and I didn’t expect it to be. The relief helped me recover and improve my mobility. It’s very nice and lightweight. The instructions are clear, and it’s easy to use. I encourage you to do the therapy every day because in my experience the relief will come.

I have a knee injury. I was determined to find ways to help myself with no medication, injections, or surgery. I wanted to see if this technology can help me so I did some reading and it made sense. The device is not cheap so I also consulted my physical therapist. I then decided to go for it. The question is whether I’m happy with my decision. My answer is YES. Solio is helping me to reduce the pain of my knee injury and hopefully overcome it soon. I hope this review will help others.

My device arrived looking good. It was my first time trying it, but everything is really easy to understand. I put the slider gel on and started using it almost immediately. This is how simple it is. The gel allows it to run smoothly. The device creates warmth and it is very pleasant and relaxing. My pain was reduced when I was using it, which feels great. I just sat in the living room and had a therapy session. Now I feel much better knowing I can use it when I feel the need and help myself. Great product.

I bought this because a friend recommended it to me. With COVID-19, I prefer to have my unit at home. I’m safe, I can manage the treatment myself, which is exactly what I need now. I use it at least once a day on my knee. It’s a small device so I just leave it out and use it while I’m watching TV. I am surprised at the power of this unit. I like the feeling of the slider gel, and I also like not having to use batteries. The best thing is that it works for me. My knee feels much better. I have less pain and more flexibility. I highly recommend Solio.

Yesss! I love this! I suffer from a knee injury. It’s been a few weeks and I hate the pain!! I do. I also hate taking drugs so I didn’t know what to do. I knew I had to find something. Well, I started looking up solutions because that’s what I needed: a solution for my pain. The day I started using the unit, it felt nice. The pain reduced while I was using it so I decided I’m going to use it as much as I need. You know, it’s not harmful. After about two weeks, maybe a little more, I noticed that I don’t need to use it as much. My knee was healing. I really feel this unit helped me heal faster. Thank you.

I’ve had a couple of TENS units before. What can I tell you? Technology changes. This is the best device I’ve used. I use it for my knee pain. Simple and easy so I just do it every day. Getting pain relief just makes me happy. What can be better?! Less pain also enables me to do a little more every time and gaining more flexibility and mobility. 

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".
