What is Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE)
Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a neurodegenerative disease that is caused by repeated head injuries or traumatic brain injuries, such as concussions. CTE is most commonly seen in athletes who participate in contact sports like football, boxing, ice hockey, and wrestling, as well as military veterans who have experienced blast injuries or other forms of head trauma.
Symptoms of CTE
The symptoms of CTE can include memory loss, confusion, depression, anxiety, impulsivity, aggression, and progressive dementia. These symptoms typically develop years or even decades after the initial head injury and can continue to worsen over time.
Treatment options for CTE
For someone suffering from repetitive brain injuries, there can be treatment options available to help manage the symptoms. Our specialists will work with you to provide a bespoke treatment plan.
Cognitive and behavioural therapies
These therapies can help individuals with CTE cope with their symptoms and improve their overall quality of life. Cognitive rehabilitation can help to improve memory, attention, and executive function, while behavioural therapy can help to address mood and behavioural changes.
Medications can be used to manage specific symptoms of CTE, such as depression, anxiety, and irritability. However, these medications do not treat the underlying disease.
Adopting a healthy lifestyle can also help to manage symptoms of CTE. This includes getting regular exercise, eating a healthy diet, getting enough sleep, and avoiding drugs and alcohol.
