CTE -Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy
CTE -Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy — is a disease of the brain. Of course, “Encephal” refers to the brain, “-opathy” means a disease.
In short, CTE -Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, is a damage to the brain that has occurred over a long period of time (chronic) due to multiple injuries to the head, skull, and rest of the body that the head is attached to. While there is a focus on the head and brain, it is often forgotten that the rest of the body (like the spinal cord, back, neck and shoulders) also are involved.
CTE -Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy and Alzheimer’s: A comparison
A recent article from Scientific American has a nice review of CTE. It doesn’t talk about meningeal compression and torqueing, which is a flaw in the article. Nevertheless, it is a good article that I recommend you read if you want lots of details and comparisons to Alzheimer’s and dementia. In part, it
states, “The outward symptoms of CTE will sound familiar to anyone who has experience with Alzheimer’s disease: Memory problems, disorientation and difficulty concentrating are the earliest signs. As the condition progresses, people begin to show poor judgment, erratic behavior, significant memory loss and some degree of Parkinson’s disease (impaired speech, difficulty with motor skills, slow movement and a loss of balance). In its more advanced stages, tremors, full-blown Parkinsonism, a staggering gait, deafness and dementia mark CTE.”
Details about meningeal compression can be found in my two books; to order either of the bestselling books by Dr. Jay Sordean, go to:
