Spinal Decompression Therapy in Charleston, SC

Could you imagine going through life every day with near-debilitating, chronic back pain? Back pain is one of the most common ailments in America - it's estimated that 8% of all adults, or 16 million people, suffer from chronic back pain in the U.S. every year. If you've never experienced a back injury or pain, be thankful. Chronic back pain affects every aspect of a person's life, from participating in sports to limitations with everyday activities, like cooking dinner. In fact, many people with chronic back pain can't even make a reliable living and put food on the table. Almost 83 million workdays are lost every year due to choric back pain.

Spinal Decompression Therapy Charleston, SC

The inability to work and provide isn't just a physical issue - it can become an emotional one too. Many people suffering from chronic back pain also suffer from depression and anxiety. Unfortunately, in the past, chronic back pain sufferers wanting to avoid addictive medications and invasive surgeries had few viable relief options. However, if you're suffering from a chronic back issue like sciatica, a pinched nerve, or a bulging disc, pain relief may be closer than you think.

Modern chiropractic care and, more specifically, a spinal decompression chiropractor in Charleston, SC, may be the long-term solution you need for chronic back pain.

A common misconception is that chiropractors only adjust your back and neck when, in fact, they treat the whole body with all-natural treatments. Here at Elite Healthcare, our doctors focus on your overall health, not just pain. We want to find and address the underlying causes of your symptoms. If you're unfamiliar with an integrative approach to medicine, this strategy may seem new. Our chiropractic care is less about putting a band-aid on the problem and more about finding a natural, long-term solution to your pain.

Fortunately, our experienced chiropractors provide the best in natural pain relief. Prescription and over-the-counter pain medications mask the symptoms you're experiencing versus getting to the cause of your pain. Pain is often the result of your spine being out of alignment, which leads to nerve issues. Once your spine is back in alignment, the nerves function correctly again.

Because our chiropractic center offers a combination of different therapies and non-surgical treatments, we provide a comprehensive approach to healing. Depending on the extent of your back problems, spinal decompression therapy may be the answer to your chronic pain problems.

Service Areas

Non-Invasive Treatment for Back Pain

Invasive procedures, like back surgeries, often leave the patient racked with pain, long recovery times, and complications. Sometimes, the surgery doesn't work as intended, leaving the patient responsible for a therapy that didn't work correctly. As a non-invasive treatment, spinal decompression therapy can treat back and neck pain without needles, incisions, or harmful manipulations of the spine.

Back Pain

Long-Term, Significant Pain Relief

Getting back pain relief from surgery is far from guaranteed. However, because spinal decompression targets the underlying causes of your back pain, it's a much more effective long-term treatment. Spinal decompression is not a quick fix. When coupled with positive lifestyle changes like losing weight, you can maximize the pain-relieving benefits of spinal decompression.

Significant Pain

Little-to-No Recovery Time

Surgery of the back and spine requires the patient to be bedridden and uncomfortable for days and even weeks. Recovering from back surgery is no easy feat and often requires strong pain medications to help. Sometimes, back surgeries don't go as planned, causing complications and worse scenarios. Spinal decompression, on the other hand, is very effective and doesn't require much recovery time at all. Once your spinal decompression session is over, you'll probably be able to drive yourself home from our office.

Recovery Time

No Addictive Medications

One of the least talked about issues with back pain medications is that they only treat the pain, not the underlying causes. For many patients, relying on meds to relieve back pain fosters dependency on pain pills. Pain pill addiction is a very serious issue in the U.S., often leading patients down a dark path. With spinal decompression, you won't have to worry about taking pills for pain relief. That's because the root causes of your back pain are addressed, not just the symptoms.

No Addictive Medications

Cost-Conscious Treatment

If you were to look at the cost of surgery and subsequent years of prescription medication, you might be shocked. When compared to spinal decompression, surgery is a much more expensive treatment to consider. You've got to take the cost of surgery into account, but also the fact that you'll be forced to take time off work. By choosing spinal decompression therapy, you're choosing a safe, non-surgical treatment that doesn't require any time off work.

Cost-Conscious Treatment

Natural Healing

Spinal decompression relieves pressure on disrupted discs, causing them to retract back into place. This revolutionary treatment also lets oxygen, fluids, and nutrients re-enter your spinal discs, which provides additional healing.

CHARLESTON, S.C. —

College of Charleston forward Ante Brzovic had a black eye, which he wears as a badge of honor in this extra special season.

Brzovic got the shiner when he collided with teammate Dalton Bolon going for a rebound last week in a drama-filled, 71-69 win over UNC Wilmington.

“I think it makes him look tougher,” Bolon said with a chuckle. “He wasn’t that handsome to begin with.”

Brzovic has been plenty tough for the 18th-ranked Cougars (19-1, 7-0 Colonial Athletic Association), scoring 17 points in an 82-54 victory over William & Mary on Monday — their 18th straight win this season.

“We played hard,” Charleston coach Pat Kelsey said. “We measure and value deflections. It tells us how hard we are playing. I think we had 50-something deflections, which I think is a record for us.”

Charleston’s 19 wins are the most in Division I and its ranking, up from No. 22 last week, is the program’s highest since 1999 when the school finished No. 16 in the AP poll.

William & Mary (8-11, 3-3) had its two-game win streak snapped.

Charleston didn’t shoot the ball particularly well – hitting just 38 percent from floor – but that didn’t stop the Cougars from connecting on a season-high 16 3-pointers against the Tribe.

“We’re a shooting team, and we play with a lot of pace,” said Bolon, who hit three of his four 3-point attempts. “We’ve got a lot of guys that really pass the ball well. Passing the ball well opens up guys for shots.”

College of Charleston dominated the glass, grabbing 19 offensive rebounds that led to 23 second-chance points.

“We got off to a great start and shared the ball,” Kelsey said.

Charleston came out hot, scoring on their first six offensive possessions. The Cougars quickly built a double-digit lead. Reyne Smith’s 3-pointer gave the Cougars a 14-2 lead less than four minutes into the game.

“We got into the game really quickly and our defense was solid,” said Brzovic, who had three steals and two assists. “We were doing what the game plan told us to do. We controlled the game from the first minutes.”

Charleston continued to build on its advantage throughout the first half, using a 12-3 run and grabbed a 33-14 lead on Brzovic’s putback with 8:31 to play before intermission.

“They played really well, and I don’t think that was our best game, but they had a lot to do with that,” William & Mary coach Dane Fischer said. “They came out and blitzed on offensive glass early. We really struggled to get into an offensive flow. We just never really got going.”

The second half was much of the same as the Cougars led by as much as 32 points.

Ben Wight had 14 points to lead the Tribe.

BIG PICTURE

William & Mary: The Tribe came in with two straight victories and the CAA rookie of the week award winner Charlie Williams. But the team was quickly in the hole as Charleston opened a 13-point lead less than five minutes in. ... William & Mary finished 0-of-12 on threes.

College of Charleston: The Cougars have continued their success in long-range shooting. They connected on a season’s best 16 3-pointers a game after getting 15 in a win over Elon this past Saturday.

UP NEXT

William & Mary goes to Delaware on Thursday night.

College of Charleston goes to Monmouth on Thursday night.

William & Mary @ College of Charleston

Current Records: William & Mary 8-10; College of Charleston 18-1

The #22 College of Charleston Cougars won both of their matches against the William & Mary Tribe last season (74-73 and 84-61) and are aiming for the same result Monday. The Cougars and William & Mary will face off in a Colonial battle at 5 p.m. ET at TD Arena. College of Charleston is out to keep their nine-game home win streak alive.

College of Charleston strolled past the Elon Phoenix with points to spare this past Saturday, taking the matchup 78-60. Four players on College of Charleston scored in the double digits: guard Dalton Bolon (21), forward Ante Brzovic (17), guard Reyne Smith (14), and guard Ryan Larson (12).

Meanwhile, after constant struggles on the road, William & Mary has finally found some success away from home. They sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 69-67 victory over the UNC-Wilmington Seahawks this past Saturday. The Tribe's forward Charlie Williams filled up the stat sheet, picking up 15 points.

The Cougars are the favorite in this one, with an expected 16.5-point margin of victory. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the squad has let down bettors in their past three games.

Their wins bumped College of Charleston to 18-1 and William & Mary to 8-10. In College of Charleston's win, Dalton Bolon shot 6-for-11 from downtown and finished with 21 points and Ante Brzovic had 17 points along with seven boards. We'll see if William & Mary have a strategy for dealing with them or if they lead their team to another successful outing.

The Cougars are a big 16.5-point favorite against the Tribe, according to the latest college basketball odds.

The oddsmakers were right in line with the betting community on this one, as the game opened as a 16.5-point spread, and stayed right there.

College of Charleston have won seven out of their last 13 games against William & Mary.

Watch Now:

The strength of the Big 12 is starting to create a problem with the bracketing rules. One of those is that teams from the same conference among the top four seeds have to be placed in different regions. The exception for that is if there are more than four teams from one conference in the top 16.

That is the case in this updated bracket. The Big 12 has five teams in the top 16, which necessitated putting two of those teams in the same region. In this case, TCU and Kansas are each in the Midwest Region.

The Big Ten still has the most teams in the bracket with 10. The Big 12 and ACC have seven each.

Computer rankings do not compute

Early season brackets – and this is still early in the season for bracket purposes – means that some teams will have computer rankings that do not match their resumes. There are various reasons why that can happen. For a few teams with good NET rankings, their overall records or some segment of them are not good enough to get in the bracket for now. A win or two, could end up having a more dramatic impact than usual in those cases.

For example, Ohio State has lost four straight, including a loss at home to Minnesota, to fall to 10-7 overall and just 4-6 against the top three quadrants. Things might get worse before they get better for the NET No. 21 Buckeyes as they play three of their next four on the road.

Also, Creighton is still trying to recover from a six-game losing streak earlier in the season. The Bluejays are ranked 24th in the NET, but are just 10-8 overall. They are only 6-8 against the top three quadrants. I mention that split because teams with records below .500 against that group rarely get selected as at-large teams. They have three of their next five at home and the road games are Butler and Georgetown, so this is a chance to get a streak going.

Back after a break

Now that I am doing brackets every Monday and Friday, some teams will not play at all between brackets. This time, it was two of the No. 1 seeds, Houston and Purdue, getting the weekend off. The Boilermakers play a matinee at Michigan State on Monday, while the Cougars travel to Tulane on Tuesday. Tulane has won five straight, including wins over Memphis and UCF.

Welcome back Wildcats

Kentucky is back in the bracket following the Wildcats win at Tennessee on Saturday. That was their first Quad 1 win of the season and followed on the heels of a Quad 4 loss at home to South Carolina. Kentucky is far from safe though. The Wildcats are a No. 10 seed.

UConn cools off

UConn got off to a flying start and was on the cusp of rising to the top of the polls, but the Huskies have lost four out of their last five and has them slowly sliding down the bracket. The most disappointing of those losses came on Sunday when UConn lost to St. John's at home. That is currently a Quad 3 loss.

Matthew Kenner and Madison Donnan met at Milk Bar in Raleigh. It’s one of the many bars Kenner owns and operates in the Carolinas. There’s also Dogwood, Whiskey Rose and Hive Nightclub, among other current and upcoming ventures.

Ritual, located on a rooftop at the old Carolina Ale House location on Calhoun Street in downtown Charleston, is the first Tulum, Mexico-themed operation. And it’s a place where Donnan got to apply her interior decorating touch.

Inspired by many a birthday and anniversary trip the couple had been on together to Tulum, Donnan used neutral tones and textures throughout and let natural elements shine, from woven wicker furniture to wispy beige pampas grass. Green plants thrive amid the relaxing oasis.

“In Tulum, everything is made with nature and blends in with nature,” said Donnan. “At a lot of restaurants, there are trees in the middle of a table or right next to you. There’s this idea of you don’t want to chop down the tree for the table; you want to make the table fit around the tree.”

That was part of her inspiration. As for the food and drinks, those are influenced by both Tulum and Charleston cuisines, with a range from Spanish tapas to fresh seafood.

You can start with guacamole and chips or crispy Brussels sprouts and work your way toward a braised beef empanada, Yucatan wings, shrimp and scallop ceviche, a whole fish or tequila mussels.

Pair with cocktails inspired by Donnan and Kenner’s Tulum favorites, like the Tepache Betty, El Jefe Caliente, Cenote Milk Punch and Mezcalita.

Brunch has also been a popular addition. Donnan said the restaurant has teamed up with their downstairs neighbor, Hero’s Doughnuts & Buns, for fried chicken and pepper jelly sandwiches in doughnut buns.

While a DJ spins some EDM and house beats on the outdoor terrace, mimosas and bloody mary’s are served alongside cinnamon rolls, deviled eggs, huevos Tulum, and grilled shrimp and avocado toast.

“We want to create a vibe where daytime goes into nighttime,” said Donnan.

Hence DJs that start before the sun goes down and are still creating a party atmosphere when the stars come out. Events are also big, like an ABBA-themed party that catered to bachelorette groups, and upcoming February matchmaking table swaps and Galentine’s Day celebrations.

Ritual has partnered with Jibe Cycling to bring 40 stationery bikes onto the terrace; there are goals to host more yoga, dance and trampoline classes. The Drip Lounge has administered “hangover IVs” on the rooftop.

“I love getting new ideas and working with local businesses,” said Donnan, who works in marketing in addition to design.

Ritual, located at 145 Calhoun St., is open 4 p.m. to around midnight Monday through Wednesday, 4 p.m.-1:30 a.m. Thursday, 12 p.m.-1:30 a.m. Friday through Saturday and 12 p.m. to around midnight on Sunday.

And Charleston (No. 32) is highlighted for its still unopened International African American Museum, of which it says, “Charleston’s brutal history of slavery can be overshadowed by a romanticized portrait of a city with charm, award-winning restaurants and plantation gardens. The planned opening of the $100 million International African American Museum this year will help comprehensively display the city’s complicated past.”

“Imagine tweaking our current voting system so that you don’t have to head back to the polls for a runoff. Instead, you would rank all candidates when you went into the voting booth on election day. You’d still pick your top candidate. But then you’d pick the second-best one – in case your person didn’t win the election. And then you would keep ranking each candidate on the ballot.”

Leisure travel is becoming less defined by vacation time or personal time off, as employees gain more flexibility to maximize and control their schedules.

Data is tracked by earmarking stays as travel or leisure, but remote work is blurring the lines between the categories.

It’s a national trend that has been coined many names, but it is being closely watched by visitor industry experts in Charleston.

Remote or hybrid work models have become the norm for many in the aftermath of the pandemic, allowing workers to save both time and money and live or work from just about anywhere with a reliable broadband connection.

Remote workers can capitalize on that new freedom by extending vacations or visits home by offsetting PTO with remote days. The idea: work by day, vacation by night.

Chris Campbell of Explore Charleston said that trend is something the marketing organization is monitoring but noted it is difficult to quantify and track.

“This is one of the newer national trends impacting the industry, and it goes beyond pent-up demand,” Campbell said. “While there is still more to understand about this type of travel, the flexibility of remote work changing leisure demand for more people is something we believe can help our industry sustain the strong performance we saw in 2022.”

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is also eyeing the trend, noting in a 2023 outlook that it expects hotels to respond with ramped up work spaces and Wi-Fi speeds.

Kevin Murawinski of Mount Pleasant is one example. He’s worked remotely as a copywriter during visits to see family out of state be able to spend more time away.

“Otherwise, I’m burning through vacation,” Murawinski said. “Or, it’s a really quick weekend trip where I’m scrambling on Sunday to get back because I have to get up and travel to an office the next day. With a remote situation I’m not stressing it and can stay there Monday or into Tuesday and find a much more affordable flight back.”

Historically airfares are more expensive on the weekends due to demand, so flying on a weekday makes a trip more affordable and feasible. For airlines, the demand is more spread out instead of being concentrated on weekend travel.

According to data from the travel booking app Hopper, the industry is taking notice. The Associated Press reported the cost of domestic flights on Sundays and Mondays has risen 5.9 percent and 2.97 percent in 2022 compared to 2019. The cost of flying on Friday and Saturday has dropped by 3 percent and 1.6 percent.

Mount Pleasant resident Matt Parker said that remote work is what allowed him and his family to relocate to the Charleston area.

“We packed our bags and are here for the long haul, all thanks to remote work,” Parker said. “Remote work has made traveling far easier for me and my family.”
