Ex-Browns quarterback Kosar finds relief from football head injuries
Middleburg Heights, OH, United States (4E Sports) – Former Cleveland Browns QB Bernie Kosar announced in a press conference that he has been treated from the effects of concussions he suffered playing football.
“I really feel blessed to be restored in terms of the brain and the trauma that was there. I almost feel like it’s gone, to the point where I almost feel 20 years younger,” he said.
Kosar dealt with symptoms for 10 to 12 years with no relief. Among them was ringing, buzzing in his head and insomnia. He even needed a quick whiff of smelling salts during games to stay focused.
Browns fans who heard Kosar’s speech in a Cleveland sports talk radio show thought he has been drinking or using a controlled substance.
His revelation came on the same day researchers from the National Institutes of Health said the late Junior Seau had a degenerative brain disease often linked with repeated blows to the head. Seau ended his life last year by shooting himself in the chest.
Kosar received 15 treatments from Dr. Rick Sponaugle of Palm Harbor, a “pioneer” in brain therapies, who had him undergo a PET (positron emission tomography) scan to assess the damage to his brain.
Sponaugle claims he can reverse the effects of brain trauma and has treated over 8,000 patients, including those with Alzheimer’s, war veterans and other NFL players.
Kosar made it clear he has no agenda other than to help others get well.
“I see friends of mine and I think a lot of them are losing hope,” he said. ” I don’t think a lot of people know there is hope for them.”
