NPH, a Gaited Community

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

There are three characteristic symptoms that help define Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus (NPH).  They are urinary incontinence or frequency, mild dementia and gait difficulties.  Also known as wet, wacky and wobbly.  Of these three, gait tends to be the most noticeable and is very often the gateway to a final and successful diagnosis as the small, shuffling steps characteristic of NPH are somewhat unique.

Our Hydrocephalus Resource Library contains several articles regarding gait in NPH that we have made available:
