What is PSP?

Understanding PSP

Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, or PSP, is a rare neurological condition that progressively impacts balance, movement, vision, speech, and cognition. With a veil of ambiguity often shrouding this condition, we aim to break through the unknown, empowering you with knowledge and understanding.


Delving Deeper: The Complex World of PSP

Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) is more than a neurological condition – it’s a challenge faced by thousands, an intricate puzzle in the scientific world, and a driving force for our dedicated work at PSPA.

Symptoms Unveiled

PSP’s symptoms can be as diverse as the individuals it affects. While the loss of balance, a fixed gaze, and cognitive changes are among the most common, PSP can also manifest subtly, making it difficult to diagnose early. We aim to shed light on these nuances, helping you and your loved ones identify and manage this condition more effectively.
