Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP)
What is Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP)
Progressive supranuclear palsy is a disorder of the brain, which has a serious impact on the balance of the body, eye movements, gait and walking. This disorder is also dubbed as the Steele-Richardson-Olszewski syndrome. It leads to cellular deterioration in the areas of the brain, controlling the thinking power and body movement of the individuals. This situation may worsen over the time. It may also give rise to life threatening problems like swallowing complications, pneumonia and many others. Though, there’s no particular cure for this syndrome, yet there are treatments for the symptoms of the disorder. An individual may be affected with this disorder irrespective of gender, geographical locations and race. It is an uncommon degenerative disorder. And, the damage that occurs is also progressive in nature.
