Whether you’re not expecting it, or you live with some form of it daily, pain is one of the worst things to have to deal with. Fibromyalgia pain in particular, can be especially difficult to live with and while medication sometimes helps, it is not always the best solution for everyone. I wanted to find something, a pain relief device that could help reduce pain without the potential side effects that typically accompany various drugs.
Finally, I came across a little machine called Solio Alfa Plus. I was intrigued by the device and wanted to know more about how the technology behind it worked as well as some helpful feedback from those who have used it. Would it help reduce pain or was it simply too good to be true? I would like to share my findings with you in this review article so that you are better informed about the product.
What is it, and how does it work?
The Solio Alfa Plus is a safe, FDA approved handheld device that one can use in the comfort of their own home, on any part of the body for the treatment of chronic pain, muscle aches and stiffness. Their website also mentions a potential muscle relaxing effect and benefit of improved range of motion. Solio is doctor recommended, available without a prescription and can be purchased online. Solio also comes with a safe, unscented, conductive gel called Slider Gel that must be applied to the skin for the proper delivery of the treatment; it also enables the device to move smoothly over the treatment area.
Solio uses three different energy sources that treat pain by increasing circulation, reducing inflammation and promoting tissue repair. The three types of energy sources are as follows:
Bi-polar radiofrequency (RF) energy
Solio uses Bi-polar radiofrequency to reach muscles and joints in order to increase blood circulation and draw oxygen to the affected area.
Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) also known as Low Level Light Therapy is a low intensity light with a wavelength in the red to near infrared spectrum. The effect is photochemical which means the reactions involve absorption of light, unlike thermal reactions which involves the absorption of heat and can occur even in the dark.
This type of energy can be used to treat muscle spasms and, according to NCBI, these wavelengths have the ability to penetrate skin and soft and hard tissue. They are proven in clinical trials to have a positive effect on pain, inflammation and tissue repair. Results with LLLT therapy include a reduction in inflammation, pain relief and accelerated tissue regeneration.
RI Heat Energy
Infra red (RI) Heat energy is a form of light that we cannot see because it occurs at wavelengths just below red light. However, we can detect it with our skin. Solio Alfa Plus uses Infra red and red spectrum light, light with dual wavelengths for treating skin pain and stiffness.
Does it relieve pain?
Personally, I’ve heard some great things from those I know, that have used it, including those with fibromyalgia. These include reports of less nerve pain, less muscle pain, less joint stiffness, better circulation and up to 40% improvement in range of motion after six weeks of continued use.
The Solio Alfa Plus not only helps treat fibromyalgia pain, but can treat various other medical conditions, such as arthritis, problems related to poor circulation, menstrual pain, trauma and sports injuries.
Is it easy to use?
Almost all the people I’ve spoken with agreed that the device was simple to use, easy to operate, lightweight and comfortable to hold. The machine is also fast acting, you can feel a slight heat generated by this pain relief device and in no time, you know that it’s doing it’s job.
How long will it take to work?
I’ve spoken with a hand-full of people who have been using the device for different reasons and for various amounts of time, most have stated that they’ve noticed some immediate positive effect as well as significant overall improvement within the first week or two of continual use.
On the pruduct website, they state that while you likely will feel some relief after your first use, it may take a few sessions to fully recognize the relief and healing benefits. They recommend a 15 to 20 min session, once a day. It is also safe to use anywhere on the body and can be use in conjunction with other therapies.
How much does it cost?
This device sells for $499 on the company’s website. I found the price to be about mid-range for this type of device. I looked at economical and more expensive models by various other companies and this one seems to be the best in terms of quality for dollars spent. We spend so much money on products that don’t improve our health or come with devastating side effects, it’s great to find something that works!
I believe you would get so much more out of this device then many other products for chronic pain available on the market today. Another thing I liked about the Solio Alfa Plus is that it comes with a 60-day money back guarantee and a two-year warranty, It’s nice to see a company that really stands behind their product.
Want to save an extra $100 or so more this product? I found the best price, as of the time of this writing, (and free shipping most of the time) through amazon. Hint: The Solio Alfa Plus can also make a great gift for someone special; after all, I can’t think of a greater gift then relief from chronic pain, can you?
