There was a good grouping, after the sessions, of the distances: Table 2 presents the major descriptive measurements that represent respiratory muscle strength MIP and MEP and the P-value of the Mann-Whitney U test, which was applied because these variables pointed to unequal variances in the homoscedasticity test, as shown above.

In the case of child development, it is observed that children with DS exhibit delay in the development of motor skills, indicating that this milestone appears at a different time when compared to children with normal development 78.

However, this approach is different in children with DS, who often show hypotonia, ligamentous laxity and muscle weakness, which are some of the changes affecting the musculoskeletal system thatlead to a delay in motor development and can contribute to a subsequent postural misalignment.

In turn, the rider must stay balanced on the animal by performing postural adjustments in the pelvis, upper limbs and head 14a process that encourages favorable changes in some kinematic variables in the gait of children with DS, and contributes to improve balance deficits, stability of the walking pattern and also in the torso musculature, which is responsible for respiratory dynamics. By means of photogrammetry, before and after hippotherapy sessions, it is concluded that individuals with DS included in this study showed satisfactory changes in motor behavior.

It can be emphasized that equine therapy presents benefits of improvement in global motor coordination. It is generally agreed that in hippotherapy, the movement of the horse, which, like humans, has three-dimensional motion that consists of movements on three axes vertical, right and left, and front and back 13transmits these movements to the rider.


With this, the present research aims to verify this effect in an Hippotherapy program in global motor coordination in subjects with DS in both genders aged between six and 14 years, when comapred with subjects with DS that did not practice Hippotherapy. This study had a similar result, where the MIP and Xown values of individuals of both groups were far below the predicted values for age.

Mounted on the horse, the individual receives neuromotor stimuli from the animal’s back that require muscular adjustments of the trunk, promoting the control of muscular activity and maintenance of the most adequate postural alignment Censo [cited Feb 18].

The motor coordination test – Koperkoordination Equoterapiaa furKinder KTK proposed by Kiphard and Schilling 22 was then applied, with the presence of a psychologist, who voluntarily participated in the research, in order to analyze whether the included fquoterapia were comprehending the guidelines for carrying out the activities, and for those who have difficulties, how could they be guided in the best way.


Effects of hippotherapy and therapeutic horseback riding on postural control or balance in children with cerebral palsy: These data corroborate our findings, which demonstrated that the stimuli provided by hippotherapy contribute to a better alignment of equoferapia structures, especially in shoulder and hip alignment and thoracic kyphosis. Promoting balance dow jumping skills in children with Down syndrome. Assisted motor evolution balances the chest and abdomen, maintaining a balance between these two cavities and thus adjusting lung capacity and volumes.

For this study, we used the horse step gait. Analyzing the tasks individually, in the Balance Beam MQ1Santos 15 evaluated the association of Hippotherapy in the balance of individuals with DS and concluded that the subjects of Hippotherapy obtained a better result of balance in the rear compared to non-practitioners. In the evaluation of the distances from the right acromion ds the right posterior superior iliac spine var 5 to the left acromion and the left posterior superior iliac spine var 6treatment promoted approximation of variables Figures 3 a and 3b.

Two horses trained for hippotherapy were used, one of the Arabianbreed and the other Quarter with Persian breed, aged 8 and 9 years and 1. Moreover, it also shows that the time individuals who perform Hippotherapy have a equoterapix correlation with most of the tasks of the KTK test, having significant results for the correlation of time with the tasks of MQ1 – Balance beam task; MQ2 – Single-Skip Jump Task; MQ3 – Lateral jump task and Total MQ – Total Motor Coordination, stating that the longer the individual practices the better the results of the tasks in these tasks and the total motor coordination.

Teles 38who evaluated the effect of a motor activity program to develop motor coordination of individuals and non-DS patients, concluded that female subjects had better results in motor coordination. Comparing the data available from the middle of the last century, it is possible to perceive the increase in the life expectancy of this population 5.

For comparisons data before and after hippotherapy sessions, we used the t-test. The authors report that these results are in line with other studies, due to the very low results of motor coordination. Regardless, the values of the PG were greater than those of the NPG, showing that hippotherapy can affect this variable.

Effect of hippotherapy in the global motor coordination in individuals with Down Syndrome

According to the census of the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics 2 It was set sindeome routesequence for the minute session based on what is used in clinical practice: For knee joint, differences were found at different moments of the cycle, without presenting any observable trend. Study of the therapeutic effects of an advanced hippotherapy simulator in children with cerebral palsy: As regards the variables MIP and MEP, which represent inspiratory and expiratory muscle strength, respectively, this study shows that the values of both groups and sexes are lower than those expected for individuals without disability.


Materials and methods This study was a cross-sectional, analytical, observational study. Individuals who practiced hippotherapy showed improvements in both inspiratory and expiratory respiratory muscle strength, although no significant difference was demonstrated. Medeiros M, Dias E.

Materials and methods The study included 41 subjects, 20 of which were in the hippotherapy practicing group Ds and 21 of which were in the non-practicing group NPG. The sessions and the tests were performed at the Therapeutic Riding Center of APAE, containing roofed area, different textured-floors dirt track, grass, gravel and cementedstalls, saddlery and access ramp for practitioners.

Results There was a good grouping, after the sessions, of the distances: Time 1 T1 up to 7 min and 30 s on dirt trackon the right direction of the arena; Time 2 T2 from equoerapia min 30 s to 15 min on grass, straight; Time 3 T3 from 15 min to 22min and 30 soncemented gravel ground, straight; Time 4 T4 equoteraoia 22min 30 sto 30 min on dirt track on the left direction of the arena.

An exploration of German and British physiotherapists’ views on the effects of hippotherapy and their measurement. The KTK battery therefore allows two types of analysis of the results: In Brazil, statistics on the frequency of deficiencies, temporary or permanent, are very scarce.

Some authors agree that it is not necessary to publish the period, since so few sessions of hippotherapy are needed for results, yet changes after twelve sessions are cited 31 Temas multidisciplinares de neuropsicologia e aprendizagem — Sociedade Brasileira de Neuropsicologia. Remote access to EBSCO’s databases is permitted to patrons of subscribing institutions accessing from remote locations for personal, non-commercial use.

According to the test, there was no significant difference for the variables under analysis, even though the raw values for the two variables were better in the PG.

The effect of hippotherapy on functional outcomes for children with disabilities: To investigate the effect of a program of horseback riding therapy on the angular kinematics of the ankle and knee in children with Down’s syndrome. This demonstrates that motor stimulation, whether with Hippotherapy or other modalities, promotes gain in motor coordination in children with DS.

This study was a cross-sectional, analytical, observational study. It is understood that these data becomes relevant for evaluating children with DS and practice of Hippotherapyy o motor stimulus.
