Short and sweet

While not as celebrated as other organs in the body, the neck is one of the most complex elements in our anatomical structure. In the neck, where the chest is connected to the skull, the spinal cord runs down all from the brain stem to the low back. It is also home to the esophagus, the trachea, and the voice box.

What causes neck pain?

The neck muscles are designed, among other things, to help the head rotate. Because of this flexibility, this complex system is the subject of many complaints, injuries, and aches.
Generally speaking, the neck is often subjected to heavy burdens from our bad posture (ask those who are on the computer all day, but other conditions like spinal cord issues can cause neck pain.
Only a medical examination will rule out serious illnesses. Still, the good news is that in many cases, neck pain is relatively simple to treat, even without the need for physical therapy.

How common is neck pain?

A study by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that 20 percent of people suffered from neck pain in the past three months before the study.

How is neck pain diagnosed?

After ruling out other problems such as cervical disc ruptures or multiple joint injuries, the most common diagnosis is muscle strain. Occasionally, your doctor will send you for x-rays or other imaging to rule out other problems.

How long does neck pain last?

The tension, which is due to muscle strain, can go away within a few days, but can also stay with you for a few weeks or more.

Can neck pain be dangerous?

If your neck pain is unbearable, you have a sharp stabbing sensation, or severe headaches, you should contact your doctor immediately.

How is neck pain treated? Will Solio’s advanced technology help?

In the case of neck pain, the most effective solution is to rest. But remember – resting doesn’t mean lying in bed all day, but rather keep moving but paying attention to what causes pain and what doesn’t. It’s also essential to correct our posture when we are working, standing, and driving.
Physical therapy exercises to correct your posture and strengthen your neck will also help. When working in front of a computer, multiple breaks, relaxation, and posture changes must be performed, along with the exercises.
Additionally, changing your workspace to ease tension from your back and neck is important, for example, adjusting your chair height to the height of your computer screen.
It is also advisable not to sleep on your belly, as this posture creates a strain on the neck muscles.
And this is an excellent opportunity to experiment with advanced pain relief technologies, most notably home appliances such as “Solio,” a lightweight, simple, and user-friendly device.
“Solio” is the only device that uses radio waves that allow for treatment and penetration into the tissue. Solio is designed to treat a very large variety of pains of various kinds arising from different sources (but not all of them, of course. Please refer to the Consumer Newsletter or the information found on this site for more information). When you use Solio, you will be able to feel the pain healing process thanks to the combination of technologies and the sense of warmth that penetrates deep inside your painful limb.

How to avoid neck pain in the future?

  • Pay close attention to your posture when working in front of a computer and change it occasionally.
  • Stretching (sideways, forwards and backward) and circular head turns must be performed at a slow and controlled time. Another exercise: lifting the shoulders up or bringing the neck closer to them.
  • During pain (and in general, if you have neck pain frequently), it is recommended to sleep with a special pillow for the neck.
  • If possible, treat yourself to a gentle neck massage with a professional.
  • Avoid activities such as sports when you are in pain.

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
