Unlike some more traditional treatment options, Softwave therapy gets right to the crux of the ED issue. It uses shock wave technology on a cellular level, helping to naturally heal body parts, like the penis. Some of the most common benefits of Softwave therapy include:
Additionally, Softwave treatments don't require much prep, don't have any sketchy side effects, don't require any numbing agents or anesthesia, and result in little-to-no recovery time. Sound too good to be true? Contact Elite Healthcare Physical Medicine today to learn just how effective Softwave therapy is for our patients!
Softwave therapy works by using efficient, effective shock waves that cause biological regeneration processes that heal your body using its own healing factors. It works like this: Softwaves are created via a high-energy electrical discharge in water. The voltage is discharged between the plus and minus tips of an electrode. The spark gap or arching causes an equalization of voltage between the opposing tips of the electrode, which causes a hot plasma bubble. This bubble explodes and distributes in every direction, compresses the surrounding water, and generates a pressure > 10 MPa within nanoseconds.
To sum up, Softwave therapy uses low-intensity, unfocused energy that is delivered by a reflector in parallel waves. These waves help open up the blood vessels in your penis, allowing more blood to flow. At Elite Healthcare Physical Medicine, our team of expert physicians will develop a personalized Softwave therapy plan based on your body and needs. With the right number of treatments, you should be able to achieve and maintain firm erections as you did in your prime.
A Softwave therapy procedure averages 10-15 minutes but may be longer depending on treatment area and diagnosis. A gel is applied to the surface area to be treated. The applicator produces pulses as the clinician moves around the treatment area. During therapy, communication with your provider is necessary to identify treatment areas and monitor progress.
Once treatment is over, you may resume your normal day-to-day activities. In fact, most patients can have Softwave therapy while on their lunch break. You don't have to worry about recovery time, side effects, or any downtime at all.
More than 50% of men will experience erectile dysfunction at some point in their lives. If you're over the age of 30, have been suffering from ED, and don't want to rely on pills or surgery, Softwave therapy may be for you. That's doubly true if you've tried traditional treatments like Viagra and even surgery but didn't get the results you hoped for. Many academic studies about shockwave therapy for ED state that this revolutionary technology is successful where PDE5 inhibitors fail.
In fact, many urologists consider Softwave therapy the most promising ED treatment on the market. The truth is, even if you're not battling ED, men can use Softwave therapy as a preventative way to keep the magic flowing in the bedroom. Some of the key reasons to choose Softwave therapy over less effective, traditional treatments include:
Q. Has the FDA approved softwave therapy for ED in cityname, state?
A. Yes - Softwave therapy is FDA 510(k) approved for:
Q. Is softwave therapy painful?
A. Softwave therapy does not require surgery or any invasive form of treatment. With that said, some patients describe minimal discomfort or pain during our softwave treatments. Should this occur, your medical specialist will make necessary adjustments. Usually, patients do not have to endure any pain at all and only experience a pulse or tapping feeling on their skin.
Q. How long is a Softwave treatment session?
A. An individual session only takes five to fifteen minutes. It's typically recommended that patients have treatment once a week for three to five weeks. The length and frequency of your Softwave therapy sessions will be determined after you visit our medical clinic for a comprehensive evaluation.
Q. How long does it take for Softwave therapy to work?
A. Every patient we treat is different, and as such, will have different treatment recommendations. Often, patients notice the results of Softwave therapy after the first session. However, for the longest-lasting effects, most patients need between three and four treatments, with a week of non-treatment after every session.
Q. Can I combine Softwave therapy with other treatments from Elite Healthcare Physical Medicine?
A. It's hard to give a definitive answer to this question since every patient is different. It's important for you to have a full evaluation to determine the scope of your needs and the appropriate therapies. However, Softwave therapy often works very well with other treatments. In fact, other therapies offered at our medical clinic like massage therapy and chiropractic care can make Softwave treatment even more effective.

DANIEL ISLAND, S.C. (WCIV) — City officials have been working to replace the Beresford Creek Bridge on Daniel Island for quite some time now.
Construction was originally supposed to start in the spring of 2022, but officials had to relocate some utilities causing a delay to the start.
Nine-month construction begins for Beresford Creek Bridge on Daniel Island. (WCIV)
Residents have been wanting the bridge to be replaced ever since an annual report found one of the bridge beams had deteriorated. Since then, there has been a weight limit on the bridge and a two-inch steel plate was installed to make the drive safe.
Construction will not only help traffic flow in and out of Daniel Island easier, it will also make room for pedestrians and bikers.
“In addition to the bridge, we’re also putting a pedestrian bike path which will go on the side of the bridge," said Tom Obrien, the Director of Public Service for Charleston. "Which will allow for safe passage for bikers and joggers to use the bridge to transfer off the road without being worried about cars and things like that."
But with this long process, the bridge will be completely closed down, causing drivers to look at other routes.
Officials advise drivers living west of the project to take Clements Ferry Road and drivers living east of the project will be routed to Seven Farms Road and River Landing Drive.
Some people did have concerns about the reroutes.
"We’ve had some, people are concerned about the issue of the detour but unfortunately when you’re doing a complete bridge replacement, there has to be another passage to allow," Obrien said.
"There's just no way because of the location of the bridge to have any temporary access, now people did suggest oh well why couldn’t you do one half of the bridge at a time well that lengthens the construction process and what we’re trying to do is be done as quickly as possible," he continued.
Officials hope the bridge will be reopened by April 2024.
The city of Charleston will be voting Monday and Tuesday night on the approval of a $2 million replacement bridge on Daniel Island.DANIEL ISLAND, S.C.

The city of Charleston will be voting Monday and Tuesday night on the approval of a $2 million replacement bridge on Daniel Island.
DANIEL ISLAND, S.C. (WCSC) - The city of Charleston will be voting Monday and Tuesday night on the approval of a $2 million replacement bridge on Daniel Island.
The Beresford Creek Bridge is one of the only two ways to get onto Daniel Island, but officials say the bridge is in need of demolition and replacement after years of use.
The final approval of the project from the city council would include adding a pedestrian and bike lane since the current bridge is very narrow.
Charleston City Councilman Boyd Gregg has been pushing for approval of the project to reduce dangerous traffic conditions on the bridge.
“More than anything, right now, I’d say pedestrian access,” Gregg says. “There’s not a really safe path for pedestrians cross or bikers to cross; the new bridge will have much improved pedestrian access.”
The bridge experienced damage to its infrastructure about three years ago, forcing load limits on the bridge for heavy trucks.
More recently, fire vehicles and ambulances are no longer to access the island from the bridge due to its current condition.
City of Charleston Director of Public Service Tom O’Brien says the bridge was built in the 90s, and it used to be the only way to access Daniel Island before Interstate 526 provided another entry point.
“Obviously with all the development with the homes and the town center, traffic has increased,” O’Brien says. “The bridge we will be replacing it with will be a very solid bridge and will provide great access for the people.”
Daniel Island is also working on another project to build a pedestrian and bicycle bridge over Nowell Creek.
“I think it shows the city’s commitment to provide these passages and safe ways to allow for pedestrians and bicycles to use the city,” O’Brien says.
Both O’Brien and Gregg are pushing for the project to finish before the next school year.
“There’s a significant amount of school traffic on this road, particularly for those traveling up with Phillip Simmons High School,” Gregg says. “We really wanted to try to get this done as much as we could during the summer to try to alleviate some of that school traffic and take advantage of school being out.”
In efforts to address traffic concerns, the city will be holding a meeting in the next month to explain the entire construction process and answer questions from nearby homeowners.
The project will be voted on at Monday night’s Public Works and Utilities Commission meeting and Tuesday’s city council meeting.

DANIEL ISLAND — The Jimmy Buffett & the Coral Reefer Band concert at Credit One Stadium slated for May 20 is being rescheduled due to an unexpected and undisclosed health issue that has befallen the “Cheeseburger in Paradise” singer.
The last-minute show, which was announced on May 12, with ticket sales beginning May 15, will now take place at a yet-to-be-announced later date.
Buffett was quoted in a news release regarding the rescheduling, with mentions of an unexpected hospitalization after a recent Bahamas trip and his promise to return to the Lowcountry, or, as he calls it, the “land of she-crab soup.”
“Hello, my faithful fans in Charleston and beyond. These few words from Mark Twain about life changes, seemed perfect to pass on at this time. ‘Challenges,’ he said make life interesting however overcoming them is what makes life meaningful. I had a sudden change of plans this week that affected us all. Two days ago, I was just back from a trip to the Bahamas, thawing out from the California ‘winter tour,’ and chomping at the bit to get to Charleston. I had to stop in Boston for a check-up but wound up back in the hospital to address some issues that needed immediate attention. Growing old is not for sissies, I promise you. I also will promise you, that when I am well enough to perform, that is what I’ll be doing in the land of she-crab soup. You all make my life more meaningful and fulfilled than I would have ever imagined as a toe-headed little boy sitting on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico. Thank you for your prayers and thoughts, your amazing years of loyalty, and just remember, ‘NOT YET!’”
Buffett and his band’s show would’ve been part of the Second Wind Tour 2023. They’ve been working on a new album as a followup to 2020′s “Life on the Flip Side,” which debuted at No. 2 on Billboard.
In initial anticipation of the event, Credit One Stadium’s general manager, Chris Meany, said, “We can’t wait to have the Parrot Heads join us for what will be the biggest party of the year! Don’t miss out — Fins up!”
According to the latest news release announcing the rescheduling, all previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new date once announced, and more information will be emailed to ticket purchasers directly.

The Daniel Island Historical Society recently made a little history of its own. For the first time since its founding in 2012, the nonprofit organization has received statewide recognition for “exemplary” work.
The Confederation of South Carolina Local Historical Societies (CSCLHS) bestowed on DIHS two Awards of Merit at its annual South Carolina Landmark Conference, held on April 14 in Florence. The two DIHS programs receiving the honor include “Cainhoy Collective: Oral Histories of Life on the Cainhoy peninsula” and the historic cemetery preservation project.
“The Daniel Island Historical Society’s efforts to preserve their historic cemeteries ensure that these sacred burial grounds will not be forgotten,” said CSCLHS Awards Committee Chair J. R. Fennell of the Lexington County Museum. “Furthermore, the DIHS’ Cainhoy Oral History Project is a great example of an organization documenting and preserving the history of a changing community. This oral history project will help preserve the memories and stories of a diverse group with very differing experiences.”
Awards of Merit are given by the CSCLHS for exceptional projects and programs that advance local history in the year prior to their nomination. The committee may present as many awards as it deems appropriate.
“These awards show the great work that South Carolina’s museums, archives and historical societies are doing,” stated a CSCLHS spokesperson in a press release. “These awards are presented during the Confederation’s annual Landmark Conference where history professionals and volunteers across the state gather to celebrate the ongoing value of South Carolina history.”
The DIHS Cainhoy Collective project, a partnership with the College of Charleston Department of History, was launched last year. A dozen interviews have been conducted thus far, with more in the works. The collection will ultimately be housed at the College of Charleston’s Addlestone Library (other locations are also under consideration). The DIHS Cemetery Committee has worked tirelessly to preserve and care for several local burial grounds, including Lesesne Cemetery, Grove Cemetery, Simmons Cemetery on Daniel Island and the Old Ruins Cemetery in Cainhoy.
Brenda Baratto, president of the CSCLHS, commended DIHS for the organization’s award-winning efforts.
“The Award of Merit is special to me as it is a recognition of grassroots efforts at its best,” said Baratto. “For much of my adult life, historical societies and their projects have always been things with which I have been associated. It is local effort, passion, long hours and the hope that a part of history is preserved and shared. Volunteers are the core of historical preservation and it is always a great pleasure to see projects get underway, get accomplished and get recognized for it. Congratulations to the Daniel Island Historical Society for receiving not only one Award of Merit, but two.”
“It is such a privilege for DIHS to be recognized with two distinct awards of merit,” said DIHS President Jessica Knuff. “Special recognition should be given to the dedicated DIHS Cemetery Committee who have donated countless hours to the cleanup and preservation of the island’s most sacred spaces. The DIHS Oral History Project has provided a fascinating glimpse into the history, culture and shared experiences of Cainhoy residents. We are so grateful for those members of the community who contributed, and are continuing to contribute, to the effort to preserve past memories for future generations.”
The Confederation of South Carolina Local Historical Societies was established in 1964 to encourage and strengthen local organizations involved in the preservation and study of historical documents, sites, buildings and artifacts through the exchange of information and cooperative activities. Members include historical societies, commissions, foundations, preservation groups, museums, archives, individuals and patriotic organizations. The Confederation is governed by an executive council made up of statewide officers and regional representatives from 10 districts across the state.
The Confederation of South Carolina Local Historical Societies established an award program to recognize the special achievements of historical organizations, volunteers in historical organizations, professionals and other entities that further the programs and projects of historical organizations. Awards are available to member organizations, individuals and others for outstanding work in promoting and preserving South Carolina’s heritage. The Confederation recognizes winners at its awards banquet at the South Carolina Landmark Conference each year.
