Spinal Decompression Therapy in Isle of Palms, 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 Isle Of Palms, 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 Isle of Palms, 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.

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.
