Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE)

Premier Health providers answer frequently asked questions about the diagnosis and treatment of CTE.

Can CTE be treated? How?

Typically patients would be treated for whatever symptoms they were manifesting. For example, if they have behavioral or mood issues, we would look at medications, such as antidepressants, which are used for anyone who has a mood disorder to help stabilize it. Antipsychotic drugs might even be prescribed for patients displaying more aggressive behavior. These treatments, however, don’t really cure the problem. You are only managing the manifestations.
