Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP)

What is PSP?

Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) is a neurodegenerative disease caused by abnormal accumulation of tau proteins in the brain. It causes symptoms similar to Parkinson’s disease with slowness, stiffness and tremor. It can also cause slowness of eye movements, mood and cognitive changes and early falls. It often does not respond well to medications used to treat Parkinson’s disease, but there are ways to help manage symptoms such as providing supportive medications and therapies.
