Low back pain: Everything you wanted to know

The lower back does a lot for us; it is responsible for our posture, gives us range on movement and flexibility, and it even carries the entire weight of our upper body. To do so, it works in harmony with muscles, vertebrae, tissues, and nerves throughout the body. But because it carries such a heavy load, many factors can lead to “malfunctions” of the lower back where the lumbar spine passes.

What causes low back pain?

One of the leading causes of low back pain is the overextension of various muscles, as well as the vertebrae in this area. At a young age (45-25), much of the lower back pain is due to bulging or ruptured discs. When you are older, the causes also include spinal canal stenosis, which results in lower back pain.
Other sources of pain are infections, bruises, injuries, degenerative processes, tumors, and more. Studies have also found that there is a close relationship between mental stress (resulting from anxiety, depression, and more) and back pain.

What does low back pain feel like?

Low back pain can feel sharp and segmented or dull and localized. It can also become chronic and period over a long period of time. Low back pain can even appear suddenly or gradually. In any case, this type of pain heavily impairs the quality of life of the sufferer.

How common is low back pain?

Low back pain is the most prevalent type of back pain. Most people will suffer from low back pain at least once during their lives, with experts estimating that it can affect up to 75 percent of the population.

How is low back pain diagnosed?

Due to the large number of causes of low back pain, it can be hard to accurately diagnose the source of the pain. In fact, there have been cases where a disc rupture has occurred in people who have no back pain at all.
Either way, if rest does not help within a few weeks, your doctor may refer you to a CT scan to try to find out the source of the problem.

How long does low back pain last?

The good news: in the vast majority of cases, lower back pain (which does not result from severe or life-threatening illnesses) will disappear on its own within a month or two.

How is low back pain treated? Is there any advanced instrumentation that can help?

Although low back pain may subside on its own within a few weeks, it’s still advisable to do something about it. Traditional methods like moderate rest (while maintaining mobility – not prolonged bed rest), moderate exercise (walking, pilates, stretching, etc.), shiatsu, acupuncture, hot compresses, painkillers, and, if necessary, physical therapy are all useful.
But when these types of treatments don’t help, surgical interventions may be needed.
It is also worth noting that low back pain can be alleviated through advanced pain relief technologies. At the top of the list is the Solio home appliance. Its small, comfortable dimensions, alongside its simplicity, make it a winning tool.

How to prevent low back pain in the future?

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
