We aren't guaranteed much as adults, but if there's one thing we can count on, it's that our bodies change as we get older. For men, that's especially true. One day you're lifting heavy weights and nailing your cardio regimen without having to stretch before or after. And then, in what seems like the blink of an eye, you start to slow down a little. You begin to notice aches and pains in places that weren't there before. You can't just go out for a night on the town, imbibe until your heart is content, and expect to wake up refreshed.
And while headaches and achy joints can be treated with ice and anti-inflammatory medicine, other aspects of aging aren't as easy to treat. You've probably guessed at this point what we're talking about: erectile dysfunction, or ED for short. When brought up to most men, those are two words that cause a guttural reaction of fear and trepidation.
While just about every man fears ED, millions suffer from it - almost 10% of the male population between the ages of 40 and 70. So, if you're beginning to have trouble performing in the heat of the moment, you're definitely not alone. You may be experiencing symptoms like:
Trouble Achieving an Erection
Trouble Maintaining an Erection
Less Sexual Pleasure
Inability to Achieve Orgasm
However, at Elite Healthcare Physical Medicine, we understand that stats won't do anything to address the stress and anxiety you're facing in relation to erectile dysfunction. You need a viable solution - a science-backed treatment that doesn't require strange pills or invasive surgeries. As a fully integrated multidisciplinary clinic in Mount Pleasant, we have what you've been searching for: softwave therapy for ED in Sullivan's Island, SC.
To fully grasp the benefits of using soft wave therapy for erectile dysfunction, you must first understand what causes ED to begin with. Put simply, erectile dysfunction is the inability to get an erection and keep it throughout sexual intercourse. You should know that it's not uncommon if you have erection trouble. However, if your inability to "get it up" becomes a common occurrence, you may be suffering from ED.
Erectile dysfunction doesn't just affect your penis - it also affects your wellbeing and relationships. It can lower your confidence, cause a large amount of stress that affects your ability to work, and may even cause contention with your partner.
You hear it all the time - as men get older, they often lose the ability to get erect. But why? As men age, the blood vessels in their penis start to fill up with micro-plaques, causing them to deteriorate. When these blood vessels deteriorate, it's more difficult for them to have steady blood flow. And that's the key to ED - having the constant blood flow to get and keep an erection. That's where the science-backed effectiveness of Softwave therapy swoops in to save the day.
Shockwave technology has been around for decades. It has been used at the highest-level research and medical facilities like the Cleveland Clinic and Memorial Sloan Kettering. However, Softwave therapy is a more refined, effective way to treat erectile dysfunction and also advance tissue healing.
Softwave therapy works by using electrohydraulic spark gap technology at its core. Its innovative design features a parabolic reflector applicator that produces very effective, low-intensity shock waves that are unfocused. Elite Healthcare Physical Medicine's Softwave applicator spreads energy to a large area of both superficial and deep tissue, creating a biological response that kickstarts your body's natural healing process.
For men suffering from ED, it is a revolutionary breakthrough treatment that doesn't require harmful surgeries or side effects from pills. In fact, it has been FDA approved for many uses, including improved blood flow, which is often the root cause of erectile dysfunction.Book Appointment
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:
If you're curious why Softwave treatments are so popular for ED, the answer is simple. Prescription drugs like Cialis and others that "treat" ED often come with less-that-savory side effects. At best, these effects are just something patients have to deal with. At worst, they can disrupt your day-to-day schedule and may prevent you from enjoying a healthy life. Sure, some men swear by the "little blue pill," but most guys aren't aware of the hidden risks with drugs like Viagra. The following side effects can be common in both short and long-term circumstances:
If you're suffering through erectile dysfunction, it's crucial to understand why it's happening. The primary reason for ED is a lack of blood flow to the penis, which makes erections difficult to get and keep. Rather than relying on prescription and gas station pills for a quick fix, more men are using softwave ED treatment in Sullivan's Island, SC for an all-natural solution minus the side effects. With Softwave therapy, you don't have to live with ED, and you don't have to suffer from scary side effects from popping too many pills.Book Appointment
Softwave therapy is often a more effective solution for men with ED than similar but less effective treatments using pressure waves. Softwave therapy from Elite Healthcare Physical Medicine uses acoustic pulses or unfocused shockwaves with fast and steep rise times and high positive pressure. Our unfocused wave design makes it possible to spread energy to a larger area, which affects deep and superficial tissue. By targeting a larger area, a more potent biological response is often achieved, initiating your body's natural healing factors.
By comparison, radial pressure waves use acoustic pneumatic pulses with low steeping effects, slow rise times, and large negative pressures. Radial waves are shallower than the shockwaves used in Softwave technology and focus energy and pressure at the surface of the applicator.
Here's a quick breakdown of the differences between softwave therapy for ED in Sullivan's Island, SC, and radial pressure waves:
If you're new to the world of Softwave therapy, chances are you've got some lingering questions you need answered. We'll do our best to answer a few of those questions here for your convenience.
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.
Remember - our team at Elite Healthcare Physical Medicine is always happy to answer any questions you may have about ED or our ED treatments. Give us a call today - it would be our pleasure to get to know you better!

The much-anticipated third season of the Netflix hit series “Outer Banks,” filmed in Charleston, is out now.
To mark the occasion, Condé Nast Traveler released a video featuring one of the stars of the show, Charleston native Madelyn Cline, who plays “Pogue for Life” Sarah Cameron.
In the video, Cline sips sweet tea while revealing some of her favorite places and dining experiences in the Lowcountry. (She admits she was late to work once, stuck in the drive-thru line to get sweet tea; you always squeeze the lemon in, she added.)
“I’m going to personally show you around Charleston,” the actress begins. “What makes Charleston a special place for me, for starters, I am from there, so it is home.”
Cline grew up in Goose Creek, and her family still lives in town.
Among Cline’s favorite spots are:
“Just talking about Charleston gets me really excited, and I hope you guys want to go check it out for yourself,” Cline says while wrapping up the video.
There are 10 episodes in Season 3 of “Outer Banks,” available for streaming on Netflix now.
The first day of spring will be here before we know it, and despite what our dear groundhog Punxsutawney Phil predicted, I’m hoping for warmer weather sooner than later.

Driver’s licenses and vehicle registration
New residents in need of an SC driver’s license will need to provide their social security number, proof of identity, citizenship, and date of birth, and two documents confirming their current physical SC address.
For dealer-purchased vehicles, titling and registration will be completed for you (generally). If your vehicle was purchased from an individual that holds the title, here’s what you’ll need to register your car in SC:
Find out what you need to transfer a plate or request a new one here. Initial registrations may be subject to title and registration fees.
Visit an SCDMV branch to obtain an SC driver’s license or register your vehicle.
Establishing yourself with a primary care provider is one of those things you’ll be glad you did when you need one. Reach out to the professionals at Roper St. Francis Healthcare, MUSC Health, or Palmetto Primary Care Physicians, to name a few. Pro tip: Websites like DocSpot filter physicians by location, patient reviews, insurance, language, and more.
Prepare your student for the school year by registering them with Charleston County School District (or Berkeley County School District).

FOLLY BEACH, S.C.

FOLLY BEACH, S.C. (WCBD) – From 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Folly Beach residents voted to decide if a cap should be placed on the number of short-term rentals on the island.
“This is our referendum vote today on whether to put a cap on short-term rentals,” Folly Beach resident Elton Culpepper said.
There are currently more than 1100 active short-term rentals on the island, however the cap would limit that number to 800.
“It was put in as an arbitrary number earlier on because basically that was at the time the petition was proposed,” Folly Beach resident Ann Peets said.
The petition was proposed by a group of residents who go by Save Folly’s Future. They say the presence of too many short-term rentals has diminished their quality of life.
“Some of them work really well,” Peets said, “the landlords are great, and they really manage them well. But the downside of others is that the partying has gotten out of hand. We have people racing golf carts in the middle of the night. We have people lighting up fireworks in the street.”
They also believe the rentals put a lot of strain on the city’s resources and infrastructure.
“It adds stress to the traffic on the island,” Folly Beach resident Bubba Catoe said. “It adds stress to the municipal works; the trash pickup, the response from our public safety.”
But some residents are against the proposed cap because they believe it would adversely affect their home’s property value.
“This cap starts us on the progressive path to becoming Sullivan’s Island,” Culpepper said. “They want 800 now, then they want 600 later, 400, 200. Sullivan’s Island doesn’t have the uniqueness we have here at Folly Beach. I don’t want that type of lifestyle.”
Residents are hoping Tuesday’s election turns out in their favor.
“I’d like to see the vote be yes in favor of an investment short-term rental cap,” Catoe said.
“I’m very optimistic,” Culpepper said.
“We’re hoping for a yes vote to cap those investment short-term rentals going forward,” Peets said.
The unofficial election results provided by the Charleston County Board of Elections: 655 YES // 578 NO.

Charleston, South Carolina, with its Live Oaks draped with Spanish moss, spectacular sunsets, and historic charm, is one of the top destination wedding spots of all time, according to The Knot. However, the last decade has also seen a steep rise in those celebrating their upcoming nuptials with a destination bachelor or bachelorette weekend in the southern city.
The bachelorette party is often easy to spot, wearing sashes or matching T-shirts as the team traipses down King Street, but there is much more to celebrate in Charleston than simply a night of barhopping (though we have you covered there too). In true Southern fashion, Charleston has a buffet table of options laid out for bachelorettes to sample. If you’re planning a Charleston bachelorette party, here are the places to eat, stay, and play for a weekend that is uniquely Charleston, and one that you can customize to your preferred bachelorette weekend style—no sashes required.
Eating is a cultural activity in Charleston—residents and visitors alike take it very seriously. Classic Lowcountry flavors shine in a variety of spots, from fluffy grab-and-go biscuits at Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit (which has locations on Upper King and in the City Market) to the always elegant Circa 1886, expertly helmed for more than 20 years by Chef Marc Collins, housed in the Wentworth Mansion on a residential block just a short stroll away from Colonial Lake.
For friends who are always eating off each other’s plates, Estadio is an easy choice, where the idea is to share all the tapas, from tuna crudo to deviled eggs and caviar, then order a porron—a traditional glass wine pitcher with a spout from Spain used to share wine with a group—to really get the party started. A stop at Rancho Lewis for spicy margaritas and some hearty Tex-Mex fare is decidedly smart pregaming if partying later is your pleasure, and its spacious dining room can easily accommodate larger groups.
Since the city has heartily embraced the oyster bar trend, there’s a lot in that salty vein from which to choose, including 167 Raw with its lovely (and often lively) courtyard on Lower King, and Rappahanock Oyster Bar, where, in addition to a rotating selection of oysters and raw bar offerings, Chef Kevin Kelly has satisfying, seasonal seafood dishes for those in the group who might prefer something such as baked clams with a coconut sauce to raw oysters.
Off-the-peninsula options for those considering beach days or boat days include Jack of Cups, serving up a funky Folly Beach vibe and plant-forward menu, and any of the many spots along Shem Creek for seafood, dolphin spotting, and plenty of photo opportunities. Out on Sullivan’s Island, The Obstinate Daughter is a crowd-pleaser for wood-fired pizzas, pastas, and whatever is the chef’s special, while Sullivan’s Fish Camp, one of the new kids on the block, promises —and delivers on—a retro vibe mixed with tiki-esque drinks and one seriously spot-on basket of fried local shrimp.
Where groups choose to stay in Charleston really does craft the experience since a beach vibe is very different from a downtown scene or resort move. The metro area has close to 20,000 hotel rooms, and knowing your party and your activity preferences can not only improve the trip experience for everyone, but give you more opportunities for walking versus ride-shares, more precious minutes by the pool, and more chances to be on time for any reservations and activities you have planned.

The Town of Sullivan’s Island and Fort Moultrie are hosting Carolina Day events to commemorate the Battle of Sullivan’s Island that took place on June 28, 1776.
The Town of Sullivan’s Island, along with Battery Gadsden Cultural Center, is hosting a morning event on June 25 to honor the historic Revolutionary War battle.
Even though the entire conflict took place on the island and was one of the first great American victories of the Revolutionary War, little had been done on Sullivan’s Island to mark the event until 2019 when the town, along with Battery Gadsden Cultural Center, began to reestablish a commemoration to complement activities in downtown Charleston organized by the Palmetto Society. Since then the Sullivan’s Island event has grown steadily.
Carolina Day festivities on Sullivan’s Island will take place on the plaza in front of Town Hall on at 9 a.m. Activities will include raising of the Moultrie flag, a proclamation by Mayor Patrick O’Neil, participation by the Daughters of the American Revolution and a special speaker on the history of the battle.
An extra special treat will be the firing of a musket salute by members of the 2nd South Carolina Regiment, Col. Moultrie’s own unit. Invocation and benediction will be by Rev. Daniel Massie. Refreshments including doughnuts, coffee and orange juice will be served.
Everyone, including students of all ages, islanders both old and new, visitors and anyone interested in learning more about the first significant event in Sullivan’s Island history are encouraged to attend the ceremony on June 25.
Additionally, Fort Moultrie will celebrate the 246th anniversary of the Battle of Sullivan’s Island with events on June 25 and 26.
At Fort Moultrie from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., there will be living history soldiers in period uniforms, musket and cannon drills and firing demonstrations.
Visitors of all ages have the chance to experience the American Revolution through the life of a soldier at Fort Moultrie. The park entrance fee has been waived June 25.
Cannon demonstrations will be on Saturday at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m. and Sunday at 10 a.m. Musket demonstrations will take place on Saturday at 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m. and Sunday at 12 p.m.
Patriots and Loyalists will be represented with the 2nd South Carolina Regiment and 33rd Regiment of Foot.
Fort Moultrie is located at 1214 Middle Street on Sullivan’s Island. The park represents the history of static seacoast defense in the United States, from the American Revolution to the end of World War II.
