Quick Quote

Few things are guaranteed in life, but there is one thing that you can count on for sure: as time goes on, your body is going to age. While most men in their late teens through their twenties might feel invincible, it's only a matter of time before age starts to play a role in everyday life. Injuries take longer to recover from, hangovers take longer to dissipate, aches and pains become a normal part of life, and intimate time with your partner can be compromised. If you have experienced any of the symptoms above, don't worry - it's completely normal to slow down as you get older.

The question is, what are you going to do about the aging process? For years, men were told to just "live with it," but in 2021, those days are over. The time to fight back is here, and there has never been a better opportunity to live your best life than now. Nobody understands the effects that aging can have on men but our team of professionals at Better Life do. That is why we invest all of our time developing innovative, effective men's health solutions: to give men a chance to change their future and live like they did while they were in their prime. If you're ready to take a stand against ED and live a more energetic, youthful life, know that you're not alone. At Better Life Carolinas, we are here to help by providing the most scientifically advanced treatments on the market today.

GAINSWave® Treatment In Rock Hill, SC

When it comes to men's health, the topic of sex can still feel taboo, especially when there are performance issues involved. At Better Life Carolinas, we have heard just about every story you can imagine regarding erectile dysfunction or ED. So if you're embarrassed and angry about your performance in the bedroom, we understand how you're feeling. In the past, men had to take strange drugs or sign off on expensive surgeries to help correct their ED, adding to their feelings of shame and hopelessness.

The good news? If you're a man dealing with ED, you don't have to settle for antiquated treatments like those referenced above. There's a new product on the block: a revolutionary, non-invasive treatment that is the first of it's kind. It's called GAINSWave®, and you can bet your bottom dollar that it isn't like anything else you have tried before.

Unlike most ED treatments, this unique approach does not require drugs or surgery. Instead, it relies on high-frequency acoustic waves to open the penis's existing blood vessels, encouraging the growth of new blood vessels while eliminating micro-plaque. To put it simply, GAINSWave® increases blood flow and gives you a chance to reclaim your libido and live life like a man in his prime.

GAINSWave® isn't a sketchy, quick-fix pill found behind the glass at a gas station. It is a comprehensive erectile dysfunction treatment with an incredible 76% success rate. With virtually no side effects, it's no wonder that men throughout the Carolinas and across the United States trust GAINSWave® to solve their ED and Peyronie's disease problems.

How GAINSWave® Works

It might sound like GAINSWave® is too good to be true, but the fact is this kind of erectile dysfunction treatment in Rock Hill, SC uses scientifically-backed, time-tested technologies and applications to improve male sexual performance. Technically referred to as Low-Intensity Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (LI-ESWT), our GAINSWave® procedure goes right to the crux of the issue. Low-intensity sound waves break up plaque formation in your penis while stimulating new blood vessel growth. These new blood vessels help get more blood to your penis, ultimately improving your ability to perform. This incredible treatment not only increases blood flow - it also causes new nerve tissues to grow, making your penis more sensitive and easily stimulated.

It all happens through a process called neurogenesis, which increases penis sensitivity. What sets GAINSWave® apart from others is the use of low-intensity sound waves to achieve increased blood flow and sensitivity. Because this procedure is completely non-invasive, you won't ever have to worry about expensive insurance claims or unsightly scarring. All you have to worry about is enjoying life like you used to, without having to undergo surgery or putting harmful substances in your body.

Here are some quick facts about Better Life Carolinas GAINSWave® treatments:

  • For most men, you can expect to have between 6 and 12 GAINSWave® sessions
  • Sessions typically take 15 to 20 minutes.
  • GAINSWave® works by releasing growth factors in your penis tissue, which generates new blood vessels.
  • GAINSWave® promotes healthy blood flow by breaking up plaque formation, giving men harder, stronger erections for longer periods of time.
  • GAINSWave® also activates dormant stem cells, which leads to new cell growth in men.

Hidden Risks of Prescription Erectile Dysfunction Treatment

If you have ever wondered why GAINSWave® treatments are so popular with men, the answer is simple. Prescription drugs meant to help ED often come with side effects that can diminish your peace of mind and day-to-day life. While some men swear by the "little blue pill," many guys aren't aware of the hidden risks associated with drugs like Viagra. The following ailments can happen both in the short term and long term:

  • Back Pain
  • Muscle Pain
  • Headaches
  • Vision Loss
  • Rashes
  • Respiratory Issues
  • Hearing Loss
  • Dizziness
  • Upset Stomach
  • Ringing in Ears
  • Fever
 VIVEVE Rock Hill, SC

If you are having problems with erectile dysfunction, you should understand why it's happening. The primary cause of ED is associated with a lack of blood flow to the penis, making erections difficult to get and maintain. Rather than relying on a prescription pill for a quick fix, many men are using GAINSWave® treatment in Rock Hill, SC for a natural solution with no ill side effects. ED doesn't have to be your "new normal," and neither does suffering from strange side effects from popping too many "little blue pills."

GAINSWave®, COVID-19, and ED

The global COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound effect on the world. Over the last year, millions of Americans have had to change their lifestyles and alter daily routines to better protect themselves and their loved ones from the virus. While COVID-19 causes a litany of negative side effects, new research shows that men who contract the virus can triple their risk of developing erectile dysfunction. Because the human body is unfamiliar with this kind of virus, it responds by sending a large immune response. During this process, the body uses massive amounts of chemicals to eliminate the virus, causing horrible collateral damage in the form of cell destruction and inflammation.

 Shockwave Therapy Rock Hill, SC

Contracting COVID-19 and suffering from ED at the same time might sound like a death sentence. However, if you are a man experiencing ED during or after contracting the COVID-19 virus, don't lose hope.

Clinical trials have shown that shockwave therapy, better known as GAINSWave®, has been shown to lower inflammation and boost vascularity by creating angiogenesis and improving endothelial function. Simply put, GAINSWave® treatments can help reverse symptoms of ED brought on by COVID-19. To learn more about how GAINSWave® can help you get back to a normal sex life after developing COVID-19, we recommend contacting our office today.

GAINSWave®: A Natural, Non-Invasive Treatment for Peyronie's Disease

Though Peyronie's Disease affects about 9% of men, it is a little-known disease that can cause physical and aesthetic issues. It is characterized by fibrous scar tissue, which forms underneath the surface of a man's penis. When this disease is left untreated or treated improperly, it can be very difficult for men to have a normal erection. This is because Peyronie's Disease can cause painful curvatures in the penis, making it nearly impossible for afflicted men to have sexual intercourse at all.

The cause of Peyronie's Disease is currently unknown. However, most cases stem from physical trauma like acute injuries after vigorous sex. Other causes include prostate surgery, autoimmune disorders, and family history. Unfortunately, traditional treatment options range from a "wait and see" approach to prescription drugs and even surgery.

Symptoms and signs of Peyronie's Disease include:

  • Erectile Dysfunction: Men with this disease may have problems achieving or maintaining erections.
  • Misshapen Penis: Some men with this disease suffer from a narrowing of the penis when erect, resembling an hourglass shape.
  • Notable Bend in Penis: One of the most common symptoms of Peyronie's Disease includes significant penis curvature, which is defined by a severe and unnatural bend.
  • Scar Tissue: A common symptom of this disease is bands of tissue or hard lumps underneath the skin of the penis.
  • Shortened Penis: Some men with this disease have reported a reduction in penis length.
  • Pain in Penis: Peyronie's has the potential to cause pain in a man's penis, regardless of whether he has an erection or not.
 Hormone Replacement Therapy Rock Hill, SC

Fortunately, for men who are looking for a non-invasive, natural erectile dysfunction treatment in Rock Hill, SC GAINSWave® is the answer. Using low-strength soundwaves or shockwaves, GAINSWave® treatment in Rock Hill breaks down scar tissue affecting your penis, helps create new blood vessels, and opens up existing ones. As a result, blood flow is increased, which minimizes penis curvature and fixes the problems associated with erectile dysfunction.

P-Shot® Erectile Dysfunction Treatment in Rock Hill, SC

Most guys will tell you that their penis is the most important part of their body. While that is not totally true from a physiological perspective, we get where they're coming from - after all, a man's penis plays a big role in his personal life and overall wellbeing. When a man has problems achieving and maintaining an erection, his quality of life can suffer dramatically, resulting in lower self-esteem and even depression. If you are a man and suffering from ED or Peyronie's Disease, you can rest easy knowing help is only a phone call away.

 Testosterone Replacement Therapy Rock Hill, SC

In addition to GAINSWave® treatments, Better Life Carolinas also offers the Priapus Shot or P-Shot® for short. Originally used to treat wounds and sports injuries, our P-Shot® is an all-natural treatment that fortifies your body through cellular repair and rejuvenation. P-Shot® treatments have shown very promising results for men who have suffered from prostate cancer, enlarged prostates, the side effects of surgery, drug side effects from prescription pain killers, and even diabetes.

You might be asking yourself, "How does the P-Shot® work?"

This ED solution works by using platelet-rich plasma or PRP from your own body. The proteins and growth factors released by the large number of platelets activate your stem cells, which begins cellular regeneration and repair wherever the PRP are used in your body. Tissue repair in your penis is further aided by the formation of new blood vessels and collagen production.

In many cases, men who use the P-Shot® to correct erectile dysfunction or the effects of Peyronie's Disease can resume sexual activity a few hours after the treatment is applied.

Benefits of Better Life Carolinas' P-Shot® include:

  • Increased blood flow to the penis
  • Improved stamina during sexual activities
  • Improvement and possible resolution of penile curvature issues caused by Peyronie's Disease
  • Increased penis sensitivity
  • Improvements to penis girth and length

University of Louisville women's coach Jeff Walz and his staff still have a few days left in the recruiting period.

And the staff was back out in full force on Sunday.

Walz stayed in the Chicago area where the Nike Nationals and Blue Star Nationals are being held and he was joined by associate coach Jonneshia Pineda and assistant coach Shay Robinson. U of L associate head coach Stephanie Norman was in Rock Hill, S.C., at the Adidas Nationals.

The women's NCAA recruiting period began on Wednesday and runs through Tuesday.

The Nike Nationals in Chicago brings together all of the prospects the U of L coaches watched at the Nike EYBL stop in Louisville and the ones that Norman saw in Des Moines, Iowa, earlier during the live period.

Kentucky Premier, featuring top '25 target Leah Macy, beat the NJ Gemz in their first game of the event.

Other prospects the staff watched in the '25 class include Grace Knox from CAL Storm Team Taurasi, Nyla Brooks from Boo Williams, Taylor Harvey from Colorado Premier, and Aaliyah Chavez and Aniya Foy from Cy Fair Elite.

The Blue Star event is loaded with talent, while the Tournament of Champions event is also in Chicago and is where U of L top '23 target Chole Kitts is playing with her Southeast All-Stars team. They won two games on Sunday in the event.

Norman attended the second day of the Adidas event at Rock Hill, S.C.

She saw a handful of U of L targets at the event, including commitment Sole Williams. The '23 guard from Cincinnati helped her team to a 1-1 record on Sunday.

Williams has also been invited to participate in the Adidas All-American Camp that begins on Tuesday in Rock Hill.

APPA Grant Helps Rock Hill, S.C., Integrate SCADA Fault Data

The City of Rock Hill in South Carolina has used a grant from American Public Power Association’s Demonstration of Energy & Efficiency Developments (DEED) program to help make fault detection more visible to repair crews and thereby improve reliability and reduce the duration of electrical outages for customers.The project aimed to improve outage restoration times using smart overhead and underground fault indicators to communicate and integrate with the utility’s Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Ou...

The City of Rock Hill in South Carolina has used a grant from American Public Power Association’s Demonstration of Energy & Efficiency Developments (DEED) program to help make fault detection more visible to repair crews and thereby improve reliability and reduce the duration of electrical outages for customers.

The project aimed to improve outage restoration times using smart overhead and underground fault indicators to communicate and integrate with the utility’s Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and Outage Management (OMS) systems.

Fault data was already being sent to the SCADA system, but Rock Hill’s dispatchers and field technicians did not have a visual representation of the faults. The City applied for and was awarded a DEED grant to develop an OMS integration module.

The module allows the SCADA integration of the fault indicators to be displayed on the OMS map viewer whenever the server has indicated a fault has been detected by a device in the power network.

The project was designed to address two problems. First, service personnel would spend the first part of a call trying to pinpoint the location of a fault, draining financial resources and dragging out restoration times.

The second problem was a lack of real-time mapping of system strengths and weaknesses that could be used to identify areas where there are repeated outages and faults. That information can be used to target resources for improvement. Without real-time data, the utility said it is not able to make as many preventative decisions that benefit the long-term success of its electrical system.

Under the Fault & Load Indicator Technology Integration Project, Rock Hill was able to develop a software module through dataVoice, its OMS vendor, to integrate the information provided from smart fault indicators on the V3 outage map.

System status indicators was delivered from the SCADA to the OMS system with location and unique identifiers imported via GIS Publisher and is made available in the dataVoice’s mobile application.

The original termination date of the grant award was July 1, 2021, but the original fault indicators failed to perform to expectations, delaying progress for one year.

New technologies were explored, tested, and one was selected for implementation during the last two quarters of 2021. The equipment was installed during the first quarter of 2022.

A contract was signed with dataVoice in January 2022 and a kick-off meeting was held in March 2022 to initiate the software integration. During software testing, Rock Hill discovered malfunctions that dataVoice corrected, and the project was implemented and completed in June.

The completed project enables data from field sensors to communicate with a SCADA system which relays the information to an OMS system in a way that provides users with a visual representation of faults and outages.

The completed application reduces the complexity of information from the OMS by giving a direct visual representation of what kind of fault is occurring and the approximate location on the line based on the locations of the sensors. Rock Hill said.

The overall cost of the project was $154,401 of which the City of Rock Hill contributed about $129,066 and the DEED grant provided $25,335.

The project is applicable to all utilities as we share the same goal, to improve customer satisfaction by reducing the duration of outages by adapting the latest technology, Rock Hill said in its final DEED report.

As a next step, the City of Rock Hill said it plans to train its dispatchers and field technicians to use of the software. The utility also intends to budget a reoccurring $40,000 each year for the purchase of additional sets of smart overhead and underground smart fault sensors.

The City of Rock Hill offers electric, water, and wastewater utilities to its customers. It distributes electric power to approximately 32,000 residential and 8,000 commercial and industrial customers in the greater Rock Hill area.

Two state honorees for work to preserve South Carolina history, one for a lifetime of service, were tabbed from York County.

Wenonah Haire received the Governor’s Award for significant, landmark and lifelong achievement in preservation of state historical structures or sites. Historic Brattonsville won a state Stewardship Award for restoration work on its brick house.

Both awards and others were presented by Gov. Henry McMaster at the statehouse earlier this month.

“It is incumbent on us, not only as South Carolinians with a great history, not only as Americans, but as people in general, to preserve those things from which we can learn, which stir our imaginations, and all of that makes us stronger,” McMaster said in an announcement from nonprofit Preservation South Carolina.

Haire is executive director of the Catawba Cultural Preservation Project. She is Native American graves protection and repatriation officer and tribal historic preservation officer for the Catawba Nation. Haire grew up in the Rock Hill area and graduated from Clemson University. Haire works as a dentist.

Catawba Cultural Preservation Project started in 1989. It’s located at the historic Catawba Indian School building on the reservation near Rock Hill. Lesser known than the separate schools for Black and white students during segregation, according to Preservation South Carolina, are the state-funded schools for Native American children. The Catawba Nation is the state’s only federally recognized tribe.

Haire leads archives, archaeology and cultural programs. Also, a craft store where Catawba pottery and other items are available for purchase. Some programs focus on pottery, language, drumming, dancing and bead working.

“I have always found arts and crafts to be an outlet for stress,” Haire said in the announcement. “Native American bead work is both very relaxing and rewarding when a piece finally comes together.”

As tribal historic preservation officer since 1992, Haire identifies and evaluates historic properties and archaeological sites of cultural or religious interest to the tribe. Included is work to avoid or minimize impact to properties if it’s disturbed for development.

Haire consults on discovered Native American burial sites and works on environmental issues along the Catawba River. She worked with universities on a 10-year plan to identify and excavate Catawba sites, and to preserve a 4,200-year-old dug-out canoe found in the Cooper River. Haire’s continued work includes efforts to put the historic cemetery on the reservation on the National Register of Historic Places.

Another area honoree for preservation work is Historic Brattonsville. It’s two-story Brick House was built in 1843 and was bought by the Bratton estate in 1962. It was sold to the York County Culture & Heritage Museums in 2001. Stablization efforts began in 2013 and two years later a plan was introduced to return the Brick House to the way it looked in 1871 for Reconstruction Era interpretation.

A phase of restoration wrapped up early last year, and soon after Brattonsville was accepted into the National Park Service National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom program.

The Brick House opened to the public last fall with exhibits focused on the Black experience in this area at the time. Earlier this year the project led to the site becoming part of the National Park Service Reconstruction Era National Historic Network.

“To be recognized by state leaders and preservation professionals for the stewardship of the built heritage under our care is a true complement to our efforts,” said Joseph Mester, assistant manager and preservationist for Historic Brattonsville. “It encourages us to continue our work to safeguard the irreplaceable at Historic Brattonsville for current and future generations to learn the stories of the past in the place where it happened.”

Efforts like the Brick House restoration are integral to what Preservation South Carolina does.

“Part of South Carolina’s greatness is the history that is in our aging buildings – think historic places of worship, mills, homes,” said Preservation South Carolina board chairman Bill Fitzpatrick. “It’s imperative that we preserve these landmarks, so that future generations can have a tangible link to the past.”

Rick Sandidge’s South Carolina football career is over.

The senior defensive lineman from Concord, North Carolina, is taking a medical hardship waiver, “which essentially means his playing career here at South Carolina is done,” head coach Shane Beamer announced Thursday.

Sandidge missed all of the 2021 season after undergoing surgery on his left ankle. That ankle injury has not improved enough to where Sandidge can play, Beamer said. A medical hardship allows Sandidge to remain on scholarship even though he’s not eligible to compete.

Sandidge will remain around the team this season, according to Beamer. Sandidge, in a statement posted to social media, said he plans to “continue my football career by beginning work as a recruiter” for the program.

“He’s a Gamecock,” Beamer said. “Whether he’s out there on the field or not, that will not change.”

Sandidge signed under former coach Will Muschamp as a four-star recruit. He was the top-rated signee in USC’s 2018 class.

He appeared in 34 of 35 games from 2018-20. His most productive season came in 2018, when he recorded 19 tackles and 2.5 tackles for loss as a true freshman. Sandidge finished his USC career with 30 tackles, four tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks.

Here’s Sandidge’s full statement about the decision and his future:

“It is with great sadness that I must announce my retirement from the game of football due to injury. From little league to the SEC, football has held a very special place in my hear and always will.

“I’m eternally grateful to my Lord and Savior for blessing me with the gift to play this game. I am also extremely thankful for the University of South Carolina for providing me the opportunity to represent them on and off the field for the last 4 years.

“Also, thank you to my family, friends, and the Gamecock Nation for your continuous support and love. The best is yet to come!

“I plan to continue my football career by beginning work as a recruiter with the University of South Carolina.”
