Physical Therapy (hippotherapy)
Physical Therapy using the unique multidimensional movement of the horse to promote functional outcomes is known as Hippotherapy. This is a medical treatment strategy involving the dynamic systems of human development in a non-traditional setting. The patient is able to have fun while performing exercises and meeting balance challenges while enjoying a connection with the horse.
Our Physical Therapist is a Board Certified Clinical Specialist and a Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor.
Riding skills are not the focus of this intervention, although contact with the horse is an immeasurable benefit for the patient.
