Dr. Amen’s NFL Concussion Study

Apr 7, 2010

Dr. Daniel Amen

Dr. Daniel Amen introduces and summarizes his recent breakthrough study of nearly 100 retired NFL football players’ brains using SPECT scans at his Amen Clinics. This summary chronicles some of the time line and history of how the study came about and the subsequent negative reaction from the NFL. Scientific evidence continues to mount for the case linking brain concussions to long-term brain damage and we can only hope that brain health finally gains a prominent place in all professional sports.
The good news? Dr. Amen and his Director of Research, Dr. Kristen Willeumier, have also been working proactively to develop a tailored regimen of supplements and healthier choices to improve brain function for each of their study participants. And results so far have been very positive.

    Dr. Amen,

    Thank you for your dedication and hard work for retired players and our brain injuries!

    Many people still don’t realize that this has been a big expense for YOU personally.

    YOU have continued to be a champion for retired NFL players and doing this in the face of adversity from the NFL.

    We hope we can help you continue doing this valuable work!

    I guess they don’t look at mail from you or any of us as important communication. I know I sent Upshaw many a letter and never once received a reply.

    I wanted to let you know that I’m going to try to reopen my disabilty case with the NFL. I am looking for an attorney in Denver to help me out. I feel with the recent issues brought forward from the Amen Clinic that they just can’t push any of us away any longer. I’ve also opened a case in CA under their comp laws. Bernard Moore Gonzales has taken the case. He was recommended by Congresswomen Linda Sanchez. We need to keep the pressure on these robber barons.

    Thanks for your time and consideration.
