"Two years ago, when I first heard about Pure Ratios, I was on crutches after enduring 24 right knee operations to save my leg. After 14 years of being in the National Football League, my body had simply begun to fall apart [...]

The osteomyelitis that I suffered from for several years took away 3 inches in length in my right leg. On top of that, four years ago, the G-forces created bone spurs in my baby toes which both had to be removed. It was then discovered that I still had a broken bone in my right foot from 1985 when I was still playing on the Cincinnati Bengals. 

Both knees had to be replaced because I was born bow-legged. After the bilateral knee operation, I went from 6 feet tall to 6’1”. Currently, I am 6’1” on my left leg but only 5’10 on the right leg due to the devastating effects of Osteomyelitis and how the prosthetic, once it was implanted, had impaled itself up into my femur. My calf muscles were flapped up, one after another, to fill in the gaping hole in my leg from the degradation of flesh from the osteomyelitis. It resulted with them cutting from my Achilles up until the full gastric.  

[...] all of the things that are allowing me to stand today are the benefits of one patch that has made a tremendous difference in a whole lifetime of problems and adversity that I have had to overcome." - Reggie Williams
