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. Solio is also the only pain management device that uses radio waves that allow for deep tissue treatment and penetration. Solio is designed to treat many types of pain (but not all of them, of course. Please refer to the Consumer Newsletter or the information on this site to learn more). Thanks to the combination of technologies and the pleasant warmth of the waves penetrating deep inside your back, you will be able to experience first-hand the healing effects of Solio from the beginning.

how to treat low back pain with solio

In the lower back area, it is recommended to have someone help you because the back should be relaxed during the treatment.

Coordination of expectations: in the back area you will start to feel relief after 3-6 treatments.  Treatment should be continued until the pain is reduced. In cases where paid is also radiated toward the buttocks and legs, you should feel an improvement in the irradiated pain after 6-8 treatments, and there is no need to perform the treatment in the irradiated areas, but only in the treatment area in the center of the lower back (seen in the picture). It is also important to take care to rest the back during the treatment days and not to overstrain the area.

How to prevent low back pain in the future?

In many cases, the secret to preventing low back pain is to change certain lifestyle factors.

My parents have been using tens units. Since my back hurts, I thought I would give it a shot. When I did some reading, I realized there are different technologies. I was really impressed with Solio Alfa Plus three energies and especially radiofrequency because I know it’s used in medical facilities. The unit is easy to navigate and you can feel when it’s working on your back. Now that I understand how it works, I can apply it to other places in my body and know that it works for me. Great product!

I decided to give Solio Alfa Plus a try but I didn’t know what to expect exactly. The first time I tried it, I felt the gentle heat and it had a pleasant, relaxing effect. After a few sessions, I noticed pain relief. I love that it’s easy to operate, and I can easily do it myself. My children also love to help. Feeling a noticeable difference is great and I’m happy!

I have been in pain for some time. I have tried prescription medications and other solutions. But this is a much better choice. I feel it is like a gentle massage to my back that reduces my pain. I just turn it on, place it over my lower back,  and it helps me. I’m so happy I found it and I truly appreciate how technology makes life better.

I’m happy I found a home unit that’s effective and accessible. Before, I thought I can only find such help at my therapist or chiropractor’s office. After doing some research I realized I can have it too. I also realized that I wanted a unit that can treat larger areas so it can help my back pain. I’m glad I chose Solio Alfa Plus.

The pros and cons of the unit for me are as follows:


  • Effective for me
  • Powerful
  • Gentle
  • No need for batteries
  • Easy to use
  • Small and portable


  • Need to make sure you have enough gel to put when using the unit

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".
