A team of medical mavericks in Dallas Texas has taken a revolutionary approach to brain health and rehabilitation with phenomenal results. With cutting-edge technology and multidisciplinary experts, Cerebrum Health Centers has helped football players from across the state of Texas to finally feel some much needed brain injury relief.
Wyatt Myall from Flower Mound, Texas began attending the center after experiencing a "head on black-out knock-out" during a football practice in May of 2016. Having played football since he was 8 years old, Myall, now 17, spent months suffering the harsh effects of his brain injury. He dealt with anxiety, headaches, constant fatigue and declining grades in school --- all symptoms of a brain injury that progressively worsened with each passing month.
"I was still hurting, like, I always got headaches every single day. Always tired. Wanted to nap every chance I could," Myall told Fox 4 News.
Everything changed when he began treatment at Cerebrum Health Centers. After just two days of therapy, Myall's balance and focus improved dramatically.
Head injuries are a leading issue for football players of all ages. In a recent study of deceased football players, 99 percent of the brains studied were shown to have been impacted by brain disease, specifically, chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), which affects athletes ranging from high school to NFL players.
Learning the dangers of brain injuries is never an enjoyable topic, but clinicians from Cerebrum Health Centers are now helping those who have to learn the hard way.
Dr. Brandon Brock, a clinician at Cerebrum Health Centers who worked closely with Myall, shared with Fox 4 News some of the hopeful insights he'd gained from working with CTE patients.
"I think we may have altered the trajectory of their future, but we don't know. All I know is this, that we have a patient that feels better," Brock said.
If you or someone you know is suffering from ongoing symptoms of brain injury, there is hope at Cerebrum Health Centers.
