Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus
Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus Center
Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH) is a condition caused by an abnormal increase of fluid in the brain. NPH is most common in the elderly populations.
Symptoms of NPH include:
- Problems with walking/gait
- Cognitive difficulty/progressive mental impairment/dementia
- Urinary incontinence
Initial investigation includes:
- Physical therapy assessment
- CT or MRI of the brain demonstrating an enlarged ventricular system
