It will soon be possible to choose how you age in the Charleston area.
ActiveRx, a Chandler, Ariz.-based company that is redefining aging by facilitating meaningful lifestyle changes that can improve the overall health and function for millions of older adults, opened its first South Carolina Active Aging Center at 999 Lake Hunter Circle, Suite B. Mark Osborn, regional developer for ActiveRx in South Carolina and Georgia, said the new center – located between Mathis Ferry Road and Highway 17, just off Anna Knapp Boulevard – will provide seniors residing in the greater Charleston area a variety of proprietary programs and services that validate the fact that they do not have to “let nature take its course” regarding limitations and diseases that often impede independent living and a high quality of life.
The first center will be managed by Ryan Daniel, a Mount Pleasant resident. Osborn said he intends to have 20 Active Aging Center locations open in South Carolina and the Savannah and Augusta, Ga. areas within the next 36 months.
The ActiveRx System is based upon more than a decade of scientific research on the direct correlation between strength and aging. Clients and members regain and maintain strength through participating in all or part of The ActiveRx System – the ActivEval™, Active Physical Therapy and Strengtherapy, which work in concert to enhance mobility, agility and balance.
ActiveRx Active Aging Centers provide a full continuum of services that are proven to facilitate long-term, meaningful lifestyle changes. Strengtherapy - the company’s signature ongoing wellness membership - was developed by the ActiveRx scientific advisory board, which consists of nationally renowned geriatric research scientists, exercise physiologists and physical therapists with more than 100 years of collective experience.
Studies have shown that most seniors lose 30% of their strength by age 65, 60% by age 75, and as much as 90% by age 85, if they do not do anything about it. “While these statistics might astound some and thoroughly intimidate others, the ActiveRx model demonstrates that patients can restore 10 or more years of strength and function within the first three to four months of care,” Essex said.
