The damaged brain of NFL player Chris Henry
But Henry was only 26 years old!
Apparently, the brain damage football players experience due to repeated concussions isn’t something that only emerges when they get older. The brain damage can affect them NOW!
But there is hope. Our study on retired NFL players shows that the brain damage suffered can be rehabilitated with a brain healthy program.
I think it is critical that the NFL institute and subsidize a brain healthy program for all current and retired players to follow. It could help prevent tragedies like the senseless death of Chris Henry.
