Our Occupational therapist utilizes speciﬁc equine movement to address functional therapy goals as part of a patient’s integrated plan of care. Equine movement is continually modiﬁed during a treatment session based on the client’s response and over a period of time in response to the patient’s needs and rehabilitation progress.
The attributes of the horse’s movement include the ability to provide rhythmic, symmetric, multi-dimensional and directional movement that can be repeated consistently during a treatment session. This treatment strategy offers the patient organized motor and sensory input that can be modiﬁed by the therapist to facilitate achievement of functional goals. Therapists can incorporate Hippotherapy as one of the treatment strategies to treat individuals as young as 2 years old to adults in the overall plan of care. Clients with a variety of diagnosis including neuromuscular disorders, cognitive impairment, sensory processing dysfunction, and social-emotional disorders can benefit from this treatment strategy.
