HANK AARON WANTS OTHERS TO GET BACK IN THE GAME THIS SUMMER
Baseball Great Hits It Out Of The Park With A Program to Raise Awareness About Osteoarthritis of the Knee
Come Memorial Day Weekend, beaches, parks and ball fields will again be packed, as Americans, restless from being cooped up indoors, resume their favorite outdoor activities. However for the some 10 million Americans with osteoarthritis of the knee (OAK), enjoying physical activity can be a struggle.
Homerun king Hank Aaron was one of those people. The man who once lived for summer and baseball in later years couldn't even drive his car to the stadium. Diagnosed with OAK after he retired, his life had become a vicious cycle of acute pain, followed by inactivity and various treatments (e.g., OTCs, NSAIDs/COX-2s). It wasn't until a doctor recommended Synvisc-One, the first non-systemic therapy which, with one simple injection provides up to six months of relief, that Hank got "Back In The Game."
