Neck Pain: Cervical disc herniation

In the area known as the “cervical spine,” there are seven vertebrae, among which are ring-like structures called discs, which are designed to reduce shocks and provide us with the flexibility needed for movement.

Doctors recommendations for soliotherapy to relife pain

In the area known as the “cervical spine,” seven vertebrae carry out the important task of supporting the weight of the head, as well as giving us the flexibility to move it from side to side.
Among the spine vertebrae are ring-like structures with a gelatinous center wrapped in fibers. These are the discs, which are designed to reduce shock to the spine and provide us with the flexibility needed for movement.

What causes cervical disc pain?

As with other common conditions in the lower back, a disc rupture in the neck is caused by a prolonged overload and pressure on a particular disc. The disc’s fibrous rings are pushed into the center of the viscous material and may tear, leak to the spinal canal, and exert pressure on nerve roots. The result is always the same: pain.
Cervical disc herniation can be caused by injuries, accidents, falls, carrying extremely heavy loads, sports injuries, excessively sharp movements, and more. Cervical disc herniation may also be caused by road accidents where the head swings back and forth suddenly and violently.

What does a ruptured disc feel like?

It is important to note that, in some cases, a ruptured disc may not produce any pain at all.
When pain does appear, it can range from mild to severe, sometimes affecting a person’s day to day life. Often, a cervical disc herniation will involve burning a sensation in the arms or shoulders, limited mobility, projection of the pain to other areas of the back or limbs, and weakness in the hands.

Is cervical disc pain as common as disc ruptures in other parts of the back?

No. Because cervical spine discs are supposed to carry lower weight than those on the lower back, cervical disc ruptures are less common.

How is cervical disc pain diagnosed?

Your physician will perform a physical examination, which may include cracking your back in some areas, range of motion tests, and questions about your medical history and lifestyle. In some cases, they may also send you for imaging tests like x-rays or MRIs. Additionally, your doctor will try to rule out any illnesses or infections that cause similar symptoms.

How long does cervical disc pain last?

It all depends on the specific situation, but in many cases, the body’s natural healing process can bring relief in about six months. However, it is essential to get the proper diagnosis and treatment as soon as possible to prevent further damage and to rule out dangerous medical conditions.

How is cervical disc pain treated? Is there any advanced instrumentation that can help?

If inflammation develops, your physician will offer anti-inflammatory therapy along with a physiotherapy referral. Physical therapy will include not only restoration of the condition but also exercises to strengthen the muscles, learning new ways to avoid neck burdens, advise on how to change your work environment to protect your back, and more. In severe cases of acute pain, nerve injury, or severe movement restrictions, surgical intervention might be considered.
Among the tools, you can use are the advanced pain relief technologies, most notably home appliances such as “Solio.” Solio is ideal for home use because of its small size and simplicity of operation, as well as its use of radio waves to target pain and penetrate deep inside the tissues. Solio is designed to treat a variety of pains of all kinds and sources (but not all of them, of course. Please refer to the Consumer Newsletter or information on this site for more information).

How to avoid ruptured discs?

When it comes to disc ruptures, prevention is the name of the game. Therefore, it is recommended to adopt healthier lifestyle habits like eating a healthy diet, losing weight if you need to, regular exercise, using ergonomic furniture at work, etc.

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
