The year 2012 was a turning point for Super Bowl winner Joe Namath. Over the years, his concerns about the damaging effects of repetitive head injuries often sustained by pro football players were becoming impossible to ignore. The evidence was mounting all around him, and in his own life as well. That year, when another legendary NFL player by the name of Junior Seau took his life, there was no more denying it. Little did he know, Mr. Namath was about to embark on a passionate journey as a world advocate for Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment.
Tragic Loss, Tragic Discovery
Post-mortem examinations performed on Mr. Seau confirmed what many had suspected. Like so many other contact athletes with a history of repetitive brain injuries, Junior Seau was found to have been suffering from Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). A progressive degenerative brain disease, CTE is known to cause moderate to severe depression, dementia, anxiety, moodiness and emotional instability, memory loss, aggression, impaired judgment, troubles with impulse control and confusion.
Joe Gets Checked
After so many years of concern, Mr. Namath finally decided to get checked out himself. The only way to definitively test for CTE is post-mortem, through the collection and examination of brain tissues. Nonetheless, he presented enough identifying symptoms for CTE for the doctors to agree to a course of treatment. They suggested an experimental treatment for CTE that seemed to be producing very good results.
An Advocate is Born
Joe Namath began a regimen of hour-long hyperbaric oxygen treatments, 5 days a week. He was so astounded by the results that he has since begun a crusade to educate the world about the potentially life-saving treatment. In 2014, the Joe Namath Neurological Research Center was launched. Along with the opening of the center, he began a fundraising campaign for a clinical trial of hyperbaric oxygen on 100 subjects suffering from symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury.
Mr. Namath continues to experience life changing results from HBOT. Here is a brief snippet from his testimony:
“My thinking is much clearer. Finding the right words has become easier and I remember events with more clarity. One of the really great results is that my sleep has improved; I sleep more soundly and have vivid dreams….I now have more energy and strength. I feel great!”

Here at Premier Age Management and Weight Loss Center, our patients have been equally thrilled with the results they experienced from their HBOT sessions. Here are just a couple more testimonies for you to enjoy:
“I decided to try because of sciatic nerve pain. It has left me almost crippled, and unable to walk more than a few steps without a cane or holding onto walls or furniture. My goal was to avoid not only surgery, but painful, and hardly useful, steroid injections. They work for a little while, then only make matters worse. Without insurance, surgery is out of the question.
With only a single treatment on Thursday afternoon, for the first time in months, I have been almost pain free. Sure, I have a twinge here and there. But I can once again walk without assistance, I no longer have my leg go numb when walking distances. I can once again bend to pick up something I‘ve dropped.
This is a miracle. I only wish I had found it sooner.”
“I have used the Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber treatment for my terrible migraines, and it is truly amazing the relief it provides. I have been reading on the uses for oxygen therapy and hope more people realize how good this therapy impacts the body. I am so glad it is available right here at Premier!“
