No known medication: No known medications treat PSP, however, I involve my patients in a number of things right from the start which I believe have a positive clinical impact on them as the disease progresses. Things such as vestibulotherapy, speech therapy, and cognitive gaming are just a few examples of activities I have seen help patients with PSP. Contact me at www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi for more specific ideas.
