Softwave Therapy for Plantar Fasciitis in Isle of Palms, SC

When you get up in the morning and go to the bathroom to brush your teeth, do you notice a stabbing, sharp pain near your heel? Does the pain go away once you have a chance to walk around? If so, you could have plantar fasciitis. According to the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, this painful condition is quite common. About two million people suffer from plantar fasciitis every year, and almost 10% of all people will experience the condition at least once in their life.

Plantar Fasciitis icon

What is Plantar Fasciitis?

This common foot issue happens when the plantar fascia - a fan-shaped tissue near your heel - gets inflamed. The plantar fascia is a thick strip of connective tissue that links your toes to your heel bone, helping to preserve the arch of your foot. When this band is strained, it causes intensely sharp pain, usually in the morning when you wake up and plant your feet on the floor.

Most folks ignore plantar fasciitis because the pain eventually goes away throughout the day. However, if left untreated, plantar fasciitis can lead to weakness and chronic pain, which may affect daily walking.

Some causes of plantar fasciitis include:

  • Playing Sports
  • Standing or Working on Feet for Long Periods of Time
  • Working or Exercising on Hard Floor Surfaces
  • Exercising Without Stretching
  • Wearing Shoes with Minimal Foot Support
  • Long Periods of Standing or Walking Barefoot

Do Traditional Treatment Options Work?

The short answer to this question is not really. Patients with plantar fasciitis will ice the affected area with little-to-no relief since they spend so much time on their feet. It's hard to rest an achy heel if you've got a job that requires you to be on your feet. Anti-inflammatory meds like Advil don't work all that well, either. They may provide temporary pain relief, but in terms of a long-term solution, taking these drugs will cause major side effects.

The Benefits of Shockwave Therapy for Plantar Fasciitis in Isle of Palms, SC

When more conservative treatment options like ice and over-the-counter meds don't work, most doctors turn to ultra-expensive orthotics, steroid injections, or invasive surgery. For the average person, those options fail on all fronts, as they carry risks for side effects and may even cause the issue to worsen.

Instead of going under the knife or changing their daily routines, many people suffering from plantar fasciitis are turning to Softwave therapy for relief.

During a shockwave therapy session, our expert providers use a special probe to deliver pressure waves to inflamed tissue. These waves trigger natural healing processes causing new blood vessels to form. In turn, oxygen is supplied to the affected area, reducing inflammation and causing healthy cells to regenerate. Shockwave therapy also produces collagen, which is crucial for connective tissue health.

With just a few visits, many patients find long-term relief from plantar fasciitis without relying on strange drugs or harmful surgeries.

Softwave Therapy for Knee Pain in Isle of Palms, SC

Living with knee pain is just miserable. From knee tendonitis to osteoarthritis, knee pain can prevent you from enjoying activities and affect your day-to-day life. Your knee is a joint comprised of cartilage, bone, ligaments, and fluids. Tendons and muscles within the knee help the joint move. When one of these crucial knee structures is hurt or compromised, it results in knee pain and long-lasting knee problems. This, in turn, leads to difficulty walking at best and debilitating knee issues at worse.

Causes Knee Pain

What Causes Knee Pain?

If you're an active person or somebody who plays sports often, you're probably all too familiar with knee pain - especially common conditions like patellar tendinopathy. Also called "jumpers knee," this issue happens at the patellar tendon, which is found on the front of the knee just under the knee cap. When living with this condition, most patients experience pain around the kneecap or lower down on the leg around the tibia.

In addition to injuries and issues like jumper's knee, everyday wear and tear will cause knee pain over time. With time, this knee pain can develop into arthritis. If your knees are swollen, painful, or stiff, you may have arthritis in your knees. Regardless of the kind of knee pain you're experiencing, treatment options have been limited to agonizing surgeries and addicting pain medications. But that all changes with shockwave therapy for knee pain in Isle of Palms, SC.

Causes Knee Pain

The Benefits of Softwave Therapy for Knee Pain

Though no two knee pain problems are exactly the same, shockwave therapy has been shown to be highly effective for knee pain. In fact, many patients at Elite Healthcare Physical Medicine find relief after just one session. Many times, sessions can be completed in as little as 30 minutes. So if you want to find relief for knee pain on your lunch break, that's definitely possible.

As is the case with plantar fasciitis, Softwave therapy works by sending sound wave and low-energy impulses to the affected area of your knee. These pulses stimulate your body's healing factors, which can help regenerate and repair damaged tendons and tissues. Softwave therapy for knee pain is especially promising for people who have tried other treatments - like surgery and pain meds - with disappointing results.

Benefits include:

  • No Surgery
  • No Medications
  • Pain-Free Treatment
  • Long-Term Relief
  • Enhanced Range of Knee Motion
  • No Risks of Addiction
  • Short Treatment Sessions
  • Quick Relief

Does Shockwave Therapy for Knee Pain Really Work?

Several studies and reviews prove that Softwave therapy can be very beneficial for people suffering from knee pain problems like jumper's knee. A study involving 66 patients with knee pain found that they enjoyed a significant improvement in their reported pain levels with Softwave therapy. In fact, knee pain was reduced by nearly 50% after a single month. When combined with other regenerative and physical therapy treatments at Elite Healthcare Physical Medicine, your days of living with knee pain are numbered.

Softwave Therapy for Shoulder Pain in Isle of Palms, SC

Here's a fact for you to consider: Every joint that you have in your body plays a part in your day-to-day life. But when we think of joint issues, we typically jump to knee issues. However, your knees aren't the only joints in your body to go through wear and tear. Your shoulders experience just as much, if not more, wear and tear than your knees. We put a strain on our shoulders just about every time we use or move our arms. Our shoulders play a pivotal part in living a normal life. When they begin to deteriorate over time due to age or overuse, it creates a litany of painful problems.

Causes Shoulder Pain

What Causes Shoulder Pain?

There are many causes of shoulder pain, like deterioration, inflammation, and trauma. Of the many painful shoulder conditions affecting Americans yearly, rotator cuff tendonitis and arthritis are very common. Also called calcific tendinitis, rotator cuff pain is caused by built-up calcium deposits on the shoulder's tendons, which connect your rotator cuff to nearby muscles and bones. This painful condition is usually linked to sports, like basketball and volleyball, or in professions requiring repetitive movements, like in the plumbing industry.

Some common symptoms of shoulder pain and rotator cuff tendinitis include:

  • Swelling
  • Weakness of the Arm
  • Limited Range of Motion
  • Shoulder Stiffness or Tenderness
  • Disturbed Sleep
  • Dull, Achy Pain

Though strengthening exercises and some medications provide temporary relief for shoulder pain, they're not meant as long-term solutions. Luckily, Softwave therapy for rotator cuff pain in Isle of Palms, SC, can help.

Causes Shoulder Pain icon

How Does Shockwave Therapy Heal Shoulder Pain?

Shockwave therapy has been shown to work wonders for shoulder pain. Low-intensity shockwaves break up calcium deposits and jumpstart your body's healing processes, stimulating blood flow and healthy cell growth. Shockwave treatment is especially effective for long-term shoulder pain since it releases stem cells, sends growth factors to the affected area, and boosts capillary production. Shockwave therapy has also been shown to break down scar tissue and eliminate trigger points, all of which decrease shoulder pain. This relief is most often long-lasting, unlike other treatments like medications and injections.

Does Softwave Therapy for Shoulder Pain Really Work?

Many studies support the efficacy of Softwave therapy for shoulder conditions like rotator cuff pain and calcific tendonitis of the shoulder. In a study of 84 patients living with long-term rotator cuff tendonitis, participants in the treatment group saw a significant decrease in the intensity of their shoulder pain. Another study related to shockwave therapy for calcific tendonitis found that 86.6% of patients experienced fewer calcifications.

If you're having to live with rotator cuff pain or another type of shoulder issue, choosing Softwave therapy may be your best course of action.

Isle of Palms renegade group Palm Republic seeks parking fight in SC Supreme Court

ISLE OF PALMS — As the new year approaches, the fight over public beach parking remains unsettled with a court case awaiting a decision by the state Supreme Court.The Palm Republic group created by Isle of Palms’ former mayor and a current councilman has asked the court to hear a constitutional challenge to a 2021 state law that says free beach parking along state roads can’t be removed without the state’s permission.It’...

ISLE OF PALMS — As the new year approaches, the fight over public beach parking remains unsettled with a court case awaiting a decision by the state Supreme Court.

The Palm Republic group created by Isle of Palms’ former mayor and a current councilman has asked the court to hear a constitutional challenge to a 2021 state law that says free beach parking along state roads can’t be removed without the state’s permission.

It’s a law created by Sen. Larry Grooms, R-Bonneau, and signed by Gov. Henry McMaster in the spring of 2021, following the island’s attempt in 2020 to remove much of the beach parking on the island and charge for the parking that would remain.

The S.C. Department of Transportation had already rejected the island’s plan to eliminate hundreds of parking spaces, and later stepped in to increase the amount of free parking near the beach on the island — “unilaterally and illegally” according to the Palm Republic lawsuit.

Those actions prompted Councilman Blair Hahn and former Mayor Jimmy Carroll to declare the island “The Palm Republic” in an airing of grievances that included a declaration of independence, signed in costume at a local bar.

At the time, Hahn was declared to be The Palm Republic’s “attorney general, also known as His Beaudacious Highness, Admiral and Grand Ruler of All Seas Less than 1 Fathom.” But he says the legal issues in play are not joke.

Carroll and Hahn have said the state law is an affront to home rule and the power of municipalities.

“We want our home rule back,” said Carroll. “We just want them to hear the case.”

State Rep. Joe Bustos, R-Mount Pleasant, agrees.

“There’s either going to be home rule, or there’s not,” he said.

The issue now is whether the Supreme Court will take what’s known as “original jurisdiction” and agree to hear the case, as Palm Republic LLC has asked.

The state, through Attorney General Alan Wilson’s office, and the DOT have both urged the court to not take the case. Both said there’s no urgency to rule on a law that’s been in effect for more than 18 months, and the case should be heard in a lower court.

“If the Supreme Court does not take the case, we’ll file the case in Charleston County,” Hahn said. “The only issue is, is the statute constitutional or not?”

He said the case would end up before the Supreme Court one way or another.

Like many barrier islands, Isle of Palms has sought to manage the flood of beach-bound traffic that arrives during the warm months. Conflict over the parking issue flared up in 2020 when the island prohibited non-residents from using the hundreds of free parking spots near the beach, citing COVID-19 concerns.

The attempt to eliminate parking and charge for what remained came the following year, prompting the creation of a nonprofit group that sued the city, the new state law, and action by SCDOT.

The Palm Republic group has been urging residents to write to local and state lawmakers, and the Supreme Court, to ask that the high court take the case.

SCDOT, Isle of Palms first responders weigh in on possible IOP Connector changes

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCIV) — It’s been nearly two years since the South Carolina Department of Transportation installed new pavement markings that removed the center median on the Isle of Palms Connector – a change that concerned both city officials and residents on how first responders would be able to access an emergency.However, some potential changes recently proposed by SCDOT could bring that median back to the bridge in an effort “to see if there is a better way to continue to accommodate pedestrians and ...

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCIV) — It’s been nearly two years since the South Carolina Department of Transportation installed new pavement markings that removed the center median on the Isle of Palms Connector – a change that concerned both city officials and residents on how first responders would be able to access an emergency.

However, some potential changes recently proposed by SCDOT could bring that median back to the bridge in an effort “to see if there is a better way to continue to accommodate pedestrians and bicyclists, but also to alleviate any concerns about incident and response of law enforcement,” explained Rob Perry, Chief Engineer for Bridges at SCDOT.

In December, the department presented five potential designs to IOP City Council and first responders.

“We could work with all those designs in those configurations,” said Fire Chief Craig Oliverius. “Any configuration that was presented, we would be able to use.”

Police Chief Kevin Cornett agrees but said one option stood out to the department.

“One of the things that we really liked about 'concept three' was that it had that median down the middle,” Cornett said. “Then you still had your bike path and walking path that were on the left-hand side if you’re going outbound, which ties into our sidewalk that is already in place.”

Nearly two years ago, DOT had removed the center median to make room for existing bike paths and said it has had no impact in recent crash data.

“We didn’t believe it would, from an engineering standpoint,” Perry said. “But again, it’s only been two summers, and you know, [we] would really like to have a lot more data to back ourselves on a decision.”

Perry admits it’s a decision that could have a ton of outcomes. If the decision is made to repave markings, the project would cost upwards of $100,000.

If more substantial construction is required, that would likely surpass $1,000,000.

“We have a funding pot for statewide signing and marking,” Perry said. “There is consensus. We have no intention of asking the city to fund the change, or the town, if it is one of these concepts.”

Perry encourages the public to take advantage of a month-long public comment period that goes into effect on Friday. He said that will help DOT gauge what, if any, changes should be made moving forward.

Wild Dunes suing IOP over development restrictions

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCBD) – Wild Dunes Resort on Thursday filed a lawsuit against the Isle of Palms (IOP) for enacting ordinances which limit the resort’s development.Five ordinances were passed in November which proponents said protected the city’s greenspaces.

ISLE OF PALMS, S.C. (WCBD) – Wild Dunes Resort on Thursday filed a lawsuit against the Isle of Palms (IOP) for enacting ordinances which limit the resort’s development.

Five ordinances were passed in November which proponents said protected the city’s greenspaces. The ordinances amend stipulations of a Planned Residential Development (PRD) zoning district contract created in 1975 when the development of the resort began. It was previously amended in 2016 to reduce the number of units permitted.

The most recent changes were brought about in response to proposed plans by Wild Dunes to build additional condos/hotels where current golf courses and recreation spaces exist.

In a series of public meetings, residents expressed concern about the overpopulation that the additional development could bring as well as the damage it could cause to the environment.

Despite initially expressing concern about how long the process could take, councilmembers acted quickly to pass the amendments, which Wild Dunes claims violated the city’s own protocol.

“The City failed to comply with the requisite procedure. As detailed above, the Planning Commission reviewed and recommended the Subject Ordinances on or around November 9, 2022, which was after the public hearings on the Subject Ordinances had already been held on October 18 and November 1, 2022. Thus, the City violated the procedural requirements of Section 5-4-39 of the City’s Code for amending PDD zoning districts.”

Likewise, Wild Dunes claims the city failed to meaningfully engage with stakeholders — despite a representative publicly appealing to council members at a November 15 meeting — and left them no option but to take legal action.

The lawsuit also argues that the city’s reasoning for passing the ordinances is misguided, stating that Wild Dunes has brought “measured and positive growth to the City for decades,” and would continue to do so with any new development.

It cites the many rehabilitation and renovation projects undertaken by Wild Dunes over the years — sometimes in partnership with the city — to improve the shoreline, golf courses, and other recreation facilities.

Regarding overpopulation, Wild Dunes noted that the existing PRD allowed for another 330 dwelling units and 53 inn units to be built, but Wild Dunes had no plans to build them all at once. Instead, developers said they would be “completed over time based upon real estate market conditions and other factors.” The lawsuit goes on to claim that individual rental properties bring far more traffic to the island, and that taking away property rights should not be used as a solution to regulate traffic.

Ultimately, the lawsuit claims that the ordinances prevent “economically viable and productive uses of [Wild Dunes’] property,” which effectively amounts to “the regulatory taking of [the] property.” Thus, according to the lawsuit, the city should compensate Wild Dunes for the land it took, or return the property rights to the owners.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of traveling is getting to know the locals in the location that one is visiting. Of course, the more hospitable the locals are, the more fun it is likely that one will have while traveling there.

Personal experiences may tell people a lot about a place, even if there is no way to establish exactly which communities in the United States are the friendliest using scientific methods. It is highly recommended that vacationers pay one of these cities a visit if they are looking for a destination in which they are likely to witness goodwill among residents and visitors.

Savannah, Georgia

This past year, Savannah left quite an impact on tourists, to the point that it is now considered one of the nicest cities in the United States.

It is difficult to pinpoint just what it is that makes the people who live here so content. It might be the vibrant and unashamed Southern cuisine culture that the city has to offer. It might also be the abundance of independent bookstores and antique shops that are rife with hidden treasures.

It's also possible that the magnificent public parks and many things travelers would want to do in Savannah are what give folks an extra spring in their step.

Charleston, South Carolina

There are a lot of amazing things to do in Charleston. Charleston is a little coastal city that packs a lot of punch when it comes to Southern hospitality. Visitors frequently come to see historic monuments such as Fort Sumter and The Citadel, but they often choose to remain because of the city's vibrant food culture.

Additionally, Kiawah Island and Isle of Palms are located close to the city boundaries, making it possible to reach the beach in a very short amount of time by car.

The kind and welcoming locals, on the other hand, are the icing on the cake. They never fail to make those from out of town feel at home.

Alexandria, Virginia

Northern Virginia's Alexandria has long been a popular destination for young professionals and families looking for a more relaxed atmosphere than that of neighboring Washington, D.C., owing to its picturesque waterfront, historic brick-lined Old Town, and easy access to the city via metro.

Tourists are increasingly drawn to the area because of its vibrant retail, culinary, and artistic scenes. One of the best things about Alexandria is that it welcomes dogs with open arms. This may be the secret behind residents' happiness!

Honolulu, Hawaii

Because of its proximity to the United States mainland and its almost unlimited selection of indoor and outdoor activities, Honolulu has long been regarded as one of the most desirable locations for beach vacations in the United States.

Those planning to visit Honolulu keep coming back because of the abundance of exciting new hotels, restaurants, and galleries, many of which celebrate Indigenous traditions.

There is a growing feeling of community and identity in Honolulu, whether through hyper-local eateries or a museum exhibit highlighting Hawaiian history.

Santa Fe, New Mexico

For the larger part of the century that has just passed, Santa Fe has been an alluring destination for artistic types who are drawn to the city by its breathtaking natural landscapes and wide open spaces.

With more than 250 art galleries that are housed in the adobe houses that line its streets, it maintains the creative history that it was founded on, creating many amazing things to do in Santa Fe.

However, the welcoming locals aren't simply artistic; this city is home to a wide variety of individuals, and one can see this diversity mirrored in the city's food scene and other aspects of life here.

Tucson, Arizona

A lot of people would love to spend a weekend in Tucson. Tucson is still considered to be one of the most underestimated cities in the United States, despite the fact that it has a sizable population; nonetheless, our readers are beginning to take notice.

This artistic desert town has a little something for everyone, whether they’re seeking historic theaters, destination spas, or hot dogs that have won the James Beard Award. One can find all of these things and more here.

Another major selling point is the welcoming nature of the people, who will go out of their way to point tourists on the right path or make them feel at ease in their community.

Key West, Florida

Visitors may easily have a wonderful time in Key West, thanks to the welcoming locals and their one-of-a-kind brand of comedy. A number of creative types, such as Ernest Hemingway and others, have always found this town to be a welcome change of pace.

The city that sits at the southernmost tip of the United States is well-known for its welcoming atmosphere and acceptance of individuals of all backgrounds and perspectives. The fact that it's a great place to let free and forget about one's problems is often cited as the main reason to visit.

Telluride, Colorado

Telluride, Colorado, is not just one of the state's most stunning mountain towns, but also one of the state's warmest and most welcoming.

Located in the heart of a box canyon in the San Juan Mountains, this picturesque town features a background of jagged mountain peaks and streets dotted with stately Victorian-era houses that give the town a fairytale sense.

Some think the lack of billboards, neon signs, and even stoplights contributes to the pleasant nature of the residents. Maybe it's in the air or the water. No matter what brings tourists here, they won't find a more chill atmosphere or more stunning surroundings anywhere else.

Asheville, North Carolina

Those interested in music, art, craft beer, and more have made Asheville, North Carolina, a hotspot in recent years. One of the happiest areas in America, according to certain surveys. Everywhere people go in this lovely little city, the friendly residents will greet them with a grin.

A pleasant spot to take a stroll, the River Arts District is home to several museums, breweries, restaurants, and buskers. The area is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts, with several picturesque paths and raging rivers perfect for whitewater rafting.

Beaufort, South Carolina

Beaufort, South Carolina, is often cited as an example of "Southern hospitality" and as one of the nicest places in the United States.

Located only 90 miles from Charleston, this 300-year-old settlement is where locals may be seen relaxing on their front porches with sweet tea and enjoying neighborhood crab boils with friends and neighbors.

Besides being the second-oldest settlement in the state, it is also home to several historic landmarks, beautiful antebellum buildings, a charming shoreline, and delectable local food, most notably its thick and spicy gumbos.
