Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive degenerative disease of the brain found in athletes and others with a history of repetitive brain trauma, including concussions and even sub-concussive hits to the head. This disease was previously called dementia pugilistica (DP), or “punch-drunk,” as it was initially found in those with a history of boxing. CTE is now most commonly found in professional athletes participating in football, ice hockey, professional wrestling, stunt performing, bull riding, rodeo, and other contact sports resulting in repetitive brain trauma.

In 2015, researchers from the Department of Veterans Affairs and Boston University announced that they had identified CTE in 96 percent of the 91 deceased NFL players they had examined and in 79 percent of all football players. CTE often results in symptoms of dementia, such as memory loss, aggression, confusion and depression, which may appear years—or even decades—after the trauma.

Football players are some of the most common sufferers of CTE

I would recommend the clinic highly

I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2012. After hearing Addison's story I knew I had to try it. I went to the center and received treatments. Each day, the doctors, staff, my family and myself could see improvements. The doctors, nurses and staff were very kind and compassionate. Meals were delicious. I thank God that He led me there so I could improve my quality of life. - Anonymous

You just can't put a price tag on that relief.

I found myself relying more on Benadryl for good quality sleep. I took the 4 day stress treatment at Springfield Wellness Center and the first night I slept without any aids and have not needed anything ever since. It has been a week. I now realize how sleep deprived I have been. I also suffer from Restless Legs Syndrome and so far I have not had an episode. I highly recommend this treatment. - Theresa N.
