Pain from infections: Everything you wanted to know

Inflammation is a necessary process for healing and regenerating damaged tissue. Sometimes, inflammation brings pain, which serves as an alerting mechanism to let us know there is a problem and that we need to rest so the body can direct most of its energy to fighting the issue.

Short and sweet

Inflammation is the response of our immune system as a result from irritation, bruises, injuries or infections. The origin of the word inflammation is “flammable,” due to the feeling of warmth that is felt in the inflamed area. Contrary to popular belief, inflammation is a necessary process for healing and regenerating damaged tissue.

What causes pain during an infection?

Many things can cause painful infections: from sports injuries and overextension of various systems in our bodies, to bacteria, external infections, viruses and fungi. Therefore, infections can occur anywhere in our bodies. It is interesting to note that most family medicine visits due to pain are caused by inflammation.
It is also worth mentioning that in situations where the immune system fails to deal with the source of the problem in the affected area, the inflammation may become chronic (and even cause chronic pain). Therefore, it is important to get a diagnosis and being treatment as soon as possible.

What do painful infections feel like?

With so many types of infections, pain can feel very different depending on each individual case. For example, some infections can cause sharp pain whereas others can cause dull, chronic, or shooting pain. Pain from infections usually happens after an inflammatory episode.

How are infections diagnosed?

Because there are so many types of infections, there is no sure-fire way of diagnosing them all. Doctors diagnose infections and inflammation on a case-by-case basis.

Can inflammation pain be dangerous?

As mentioned, it is necessary to diagnose the source of the pain as soon as possible, to identify its causes, and -to begin treatment to prevent further deterioration in the condition.

How is inflammatory pain treated? Can advanced technology help?

Generally, inflammatory pain will require resting the affected area, along with avoiding movements that cause pain. In some cases, the doctor will suggest taking anti-inflammatory drugs or injecting steroids into the affected tissue. Arthritis, muscle, or tendon pain will also be treated through physical therapy to strengthen the muscles in the area.

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".
