From serious sports injuries causing tissue damage to bone issues and stiffness that comes with age, living with pain is, well, a pain. But it's more than that - it's a stressful, often upsetting way to get through your day, month, and year. Have you ever tried to get out of bed with sore, stiff knees? Most folks would rather just get back in bed. Think you might try exercising with plantar fasciitis? Don't plan on running far or doing cardio for very long. Torn rotator cuff? Without proper treatment, your life might not ever be the same.
Living with pain and the inevitable issues that come with age can seriously affect your wellbeing and happiness. Sure, you could wake up every morning and rely on addicting medications to help you move. Or, you could risk further injury and damage with invasive surgeries that require long periods of recovery and downtime. But those can't be the only two options for treatment, can they?
Fortunately, a new, natural, non-invasive treatment for pain is revolutionizing the medical industry and transforming people's lives. It's giving athletes, average folks, and people of a certain age a reason to be hopeful. It's called Softwave therapy, and unlike many fly-by-night medications and sketchy treatments, it's backed by science and provided by Elite Healthcare Physical Medicine.
If you're barely making it through the day suffering from chronic pain, this FDA-approved drug-free treatment may be for you. Softwave therapy has already been used by thousands of people around the country living with issues like shoulder pain, knee pain, and plantar fasciitis. You could be next.
Though its popularity has only grown in recent years, Softwave therapy - also known as shockwave therapy - has been around for years. In fact, the first systematic study into the benefits of shockwave therapy took place way back in 1950. So, what is Softwave therapy?
Softwave therapy is a method of treatment that works incredibly well for mobility rehab, pain relief, and full-body recovery, usually from chronic pain or injuries. Softwave therapy uses a device emitting low-energy soundwaves that target a patient's injured area. These low-intensity waves boost blood flow and kickstart your body's natural healing processes, relieving long-term pain and helping your body to heal a wide range of injuries and conditions.
The main targets in the body include bones, tendons, and other soft tissues, which are encouraged to regenerate and repair via the shockwaves. Often, shockwave therapy is used in conjunction with other non-invasive treatments like chiropractic care, which we offer at Elite Healthcare Physical Medicine. The results are often incredible, leaving patients wondering why they never tried Softwave therapy before.
Softwave therapy works especially well for:
Better Blood Flow
Kickstarting cell growth and healing factors
Breaking down build-ups of calcium
With FDA clearance, little-to-no side effects, and quick application time, Softwave therapy is a welcome alternative for people suffering from pain. Who wants to spend weeks or months recovering from a surgery that might not even work? Likewise, who would want to become dependent on over-the-counter or, even worse, prescription pain meds? Living a life of addiction is a road nobody wants to go down.
Softwave therapy represents a revolution in non-invasive pain treatment; best of all, it's highly effective. Independent studies prove that shockwave therapy helps with pain. 65-91% of patients using shockwave therapy experienced real-deal improvements in damaged muscle and bone tissue, solving their mobility problems and drastically reducing pain. It almost sounds too good to be true, but as many patients at Elite Healthcare Physical Medicine will tell you - it isn't.Book Appointment
Some of the most common conditions that Softwave therapy treats include:
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.
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:
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.Book Appointment
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.
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.
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 Mount Pleasant, SC.
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.
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.Book Appointment
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.
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:
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 Mount Pleasant, SC, can help.
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.
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.Book Appointment

A new restaurant from the couple who brought Community Table and Kiki & Rye to Mount Pleasant is ready for its debut in downtown Charleston.
Southbound, part of Free Reign Restaurants owned by Ryan and Kelleanne Jones, has tentatively set Jan. 24 as the opening date, pending the certificate of occupancy from the city.
They will host a hiring happy hour 5:30-7:30 p.m. Jan. 11 for the new venue in a two-story house at 72 Cannon St.
The couple said the Southbound concept actually came before the other two ventures, but delays and the interruption of COVID-19 led to the opening of those first.
Community Table opened four years ago in the I’On neighborhood, while Kiki & Rye launched in mid-2020 in Belle Hall Shopping Center during the height of the pandemic.
The Mount Pleasant couple moved to the Charleston area more than seven years ago after operating a restaurant in Connecticut for several years.

“Everything will be focused on live-fire cooking and local dishes,” Ryan Jones said.
The main level of the 2,000-square-foot space will include a 10-foot open hearth with seating around it and about 45 seats outside on a wrap-around porch and terrace. The upstairs will include a bar and dining area.
The restaurant will employ more than two dozen workers and be open at 4 p.m. daily for dinner.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – Leaders in the Town of Mount Pleasant will soon assess traffic patterns and volume through a comprehensive study.
Mayor Will Haynie said the town will take an in-depth look at the flow of traffic and see what can be done to reduce the number of vehicles traveling on roads throughout the town.
“I mean, there always seems to be traffic,” said one motorist. It’s a concern often echoed to town leadership by those who live or work in Mount Pleasant.
“The number one complaint I get from residents is traffic,” said Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie in an interview with News 2.
Mount Pleasant’s leaders have taken note of those concerns – they are now preparing to act.
“What we want to look at; what we’ll be discussing at our committee on Monday is a comprehensive look at traffic management in the town,” Mayor Haynie said.
Mayor Haynie said the study is not about building new roads, it’s about managing the traffic on roads already in use.
“We’re going to look at how the signals work,” he said. “We’re going to look at how the turn lanes are striped; we’re going to look at where the traffic patterns are.”
Drivers say the study is long overdue.
“The population here over the past decade has increased greatly. The roads are exactly the same,” said motorist Braden Burleson.
Drivers say they see several issues on the town’s roadways
“The volume of traffic, the stop-and-go of the lights. You can get momentum, you can look ahead, and the light looks green, but you’ll be slamming on breaks because cars aren’t able to get through the light,” Burleson continued.
And because of those issues, drivers do not always feel comfortable on the roads.
“I don’t feel too safe. I feel like I’m ready to get off the road,” she said.
Telisha Haworth, who said she often finds herself in stop-and-go traffic while commuting to work, is pleased to hear about the forthcoming study.
“I think that’s good. Definitely looking into it. I mean, I don’t know if they’ll be to fix it or not.”
Town leaders said the goal of the study is to reduce traffic and improve residents’ quality of life.
“The more you are at home with your family enjoying that quality of life, instead of sitting in traffic, the better,” said Mayor Haynie.
Mayor Haynie said this will be the first comprehensive traffic study conducted for the town since 2017.

A three-day festival experience for all things Charlie Chaplin is coming to town. Chaplin, famously known for his mustached, bowler hat-wearing character “the Little Tramp,” was one of the most influential filmmakers of the silent movie era.
His use of slapstick comedy and pantomime in his movies, or dramatic, exaggerated movements in place of words, launched him to international stardom.
On March 23 to 25 at Mount Pleasant Towne Centre, a selection of Chaplin’s films will be played on the big screen, and festivalgoers can learn more about the man behind the icon.
The festival will feature a keynote from University of Pennsylvania professor Dr. Toni Bowers, who teaches an advanced cinema studies course on Chaplin’s silent films. Bowers plans to speak about who Chaplin was beyond the Tramp character, and the lasting impacts his films have had on the film industry.
“We’ll explore the almost uncanny appeal of the Tramp figure on a global stage. I also want to go further than that and think about Chaplin himself, the man behind the Tramp who was definitely not the Tramp in any way. I also want to think about Chaplin’s artistic processes,” Bowers said.
Festival organizer Linda Dennis hopes the event will expose the Mount Pleasant community to Chaplin’s work and educate attendees on the role the filmmaker had in motion-picture history.
“Had Charlie not come out with some of his silent films following the close of World War I, the world would have been a sadder place. He was known for bringing love and laughter to populations who had just gotten over war, so he’s had a huge impact on our culture,” Dennis said.
Events lined up for the festival include a Tramp look-a-like contest, a filmmaking demonstration, and of course, screenings of Chaplin’s films at Regal Palmetto Grande. Festivalgoers can view The Kid (1921), The Circus (1928), Modern Times (1936) and City Lights (1931), which is said to be Chaplin’s personal favorite of his films.
The Mount Pleasant SC Film Festival – Charlie Chaplin Silent Films will be held at Mount Pleasant Towne Centre on March 23-25, with a half-day showing at Barnes and Noble for seniors on Friday and Family Day set for Saturday. Sponsors for the festival include Mount Pleasant Towne Centre, Barnes & Noble, Sweet Julep’s, Filmdomfete and Jon Smith Subs. For a full schedule of events and to purchase tickets, visit mountpleasantscfilmfestival.com.
“It’s not just a film festival. It’s an experience,” Dennis said. “We hope people come and enjoy it and come inside and watch some of the films.”

MT. PLEASANT, S.C. – Coastal Carolina saw a 3-0 lead erased late in the contest on Tuesday night, as the Chanticleers fell 4-3 on the road at the College of Charleston in Mt. Pleasant, S.C.
The loss dropped Coastal to 4-4 overall and 0-2 in midweek contests. With the win, Charleston moved to 4-3 overall.
The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for the Chants over the Cougars.
Despite a solid start from super senior Jack Billings, who struck out two hitters and allowed just two hits over 2.0-complete innings, and a career outing by sophomore pitcher Darin Horn, who fired a career-high 4.0-scoreless innings and struck out four CofC hitters, the Chanticleers were unable to steal a road win.
The loss fell to junior transfer Alex Edmondson (0-1), as the righty gave up two runs on two hits, two walks, and one strikeout in 1.0 inning of work out of the bullpen.
While the Cougars used four pitchers on the night, the win went to 2022 Colonial Athletic Association Pitcher of the Year William Privette (1-0), as the reliever struck out one over a scoreless eighth and ninth innings.
Coastal's offense used the long ball to score all three of its runs for the game, as sophomore Derek Bender (2-for-4, HR, 2 RBIs, run) hit a two-run home run in the second and senior Graham Brown (1-for-4, HR, RBI, run) added a solo home run in the sixth.
However, the Chants had just seven hits for the game compared to 12 strikeouts at the plate.
The Cougars' offense had just eight base hits on the night but was able to plate four runs, highlighted by Jared Kirven (3-for-4, 2B, 2 runs) and his game-high three hits. William Baumhofer (1-for-4, 2B, 2 RBIs) had a two-run double, while Luke Wood (1-for-1, 2B, RBI) and Khyree Miller (1-for-3, BB, RBI, run) had one RBI each in the win.
After both teams stranded a runner in the first inning, the Chants took a 2-0 lead in the top of the second on a two-run opposite field home run off the bat of Bender. The home run was his first of the season.
Billings and Horn combined to strikeout six hitters and strand three Cougar runners over the second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth innings, while the Chants added to their lead with a solo home run to straightaway center field by Brown in the top of the sixth. The long ball was the third of the year for Brown.
However, the Cougars were able to cut into the Chants' 3-0 lead in the bottom of the seventh, as Kirven led off the inning with a double to left field. After a ground out moved Kirven to third base, Miller hit a ball deep in the hole on the left side of the infield and legged out a base hit to plate Kirven to put the score at 3-1.
On the play, an errant throw to first base allowed Miller to advance to second base, which proved to hurt the Chants, as two batters later, Wood hit a pinch-hit double to right-center field to score Miller and cut the Coastal lead to one at 3-2.
Following a 1-2-3 inning for the Chants in the top of the eighth, the Cougars struck again in the bottom half of the inning as Baumhofer delivered a double down the left-field line and just out of the reach of a diving Chad Born to score two more runs and put the home team on top 4-3.
With three outs left, Privette was able to send the Chants down in order in the top of the ninth to seal the come-from-behind win by the Cougars.
The Chanticleers stranded six runners on base compared to the Cougars' seven.
However, CCU also hit into two double plays and was just 2-for-15 (.133) with runners in scoring position for the game.
Coastal will return home to host the Davidson Wildcats for a three-game series this weekend, March 3-5, at Springs Brooks Stadium.
