Otherwiseour findings can strengthen the equoterapla found in the literature on the use of hippotherapy as a potential intervention for people with DS and postural changes. The results indicated improvements in static and dynamic balance, motor coordination and muscle strength. Silkwood-Sherer D, Warmbier H. Objective To analyze the effects of a hippotherapy program on respiratory muscle strength in individuals with Down syndrome.

This is an open-access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License. Images were analyzed by three different examiners. Several authors affirm that the horse, used as a kinesiotherapeutic instrument in the care of people with physical disabilities, offers a motor enhancement of body alignment, to control global synergies in addition to providing a static and dynamic balance increase 1516171819 The guardians of the individuals included in the study gave written consent,claimed they understood the purpose of this study and the procedures adopted.

In case there was a discrepancy between the measurements, the procedure was repeated. The effect of hippotherapy on ten children with cerebral palsy. The results of this study suggest that the practice of hippotherapy may influence respiratory muscle strength in patients with Down syndrome, of both sexes and aged between 7 and 13 years, when compared with individuals with Down syndrome who do not practice hippotherapy.

It was also found an improvement in the alignment of the hip and lower limbs, measured by the variables that indicate the distance between the anterior superior iliac spine and the medial malleolus, on both sides. As well as Pelozin et al. Photographs were obtained with individuals in swimwear, standing erect in the views: O praticante deve ser visto na equoterapia de forma integral, ou seja, o individuo como um todo, um ser atuante em sua terapia e em sua vida.


Introduction Every minute, about 20 babies are born with some kind of disability, totaling approximately 9. The t-test for independent samples was applied or equivalent non-parametric test for non-normal distributionbecause in the two experimental conditions the same participants were not used, as well as to verify the correlation in relation to the time of practice of equotherapy and the age and motor coordination, we chose to use the Pearson test.

Policarpo and Santos 11 claim that individuals with DS have a deficit of respiratory muscle strength, and believe that these individuals benefit from muscle training, which minimizes future respiratory complications. Variabilidade da frequencia cardiaca em praticantes de equoterapia com paralisia cerebral.

Balance on beams, Single-lever jump, Side-jump and Transfer on platform for analysis of motor coordination for individuals. We used an inferential statistic from the Levene test to verify the homoscedasticity of the variables, evaluating the sinrome or non-variances between the variables of the groups.

Influence of artificial saddle riding on postural stability in children with CP. They were selected, first, through the records sindrmoe the institutions and annotated the telephone contacts of the parents of 45 individuals.

Horseback riding in children with cerebral palsy: Postural assessment of girls between s and 10 years of age. Horses were randomized selected for the sessions and showed docile behavior, obedience to the voice, indifference to unknown objects and noises, they leaned against on the ramp for riding, were fond of children and accepted all kinds of harnesses.

Table 2 presents the equotetapia 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.

Rev Fisioter S Fun. For other variables, moderate but not significant correlations were observed.

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

Previous studies indicate that chromosomal diseases, especially trisomies, have a high prevalence of heart disease in all age groups 27 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.

Individuals with Down syndrome may have decreased respiratory muscle strength due to hypotonia, a common characteristic in this population. In the evaluation of the distances from the right acromion and 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.


According to Mauerberg-Decastro 30 advocates that dowj deficiency affects sensory integration, accumulating deficits of primitive reflexes appearing with changes of muscle tone or postural underadaptation, causing problems in their dynamic balance and exploration of space.

The correlations with the variable age, presented inverse relationships, that is, the higher the age the lower the value of the variables under study.


In addition, there was a smaller protrusion and head alignment, evaluated by the grouping of the variables that indicate the distance between the right acromion and the mentus with the distance from the left acromion to the mentus.

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. In addition to the significant difference for the Total MQ variable, table 01 also shows that the MQ3 variable has a significant difference.

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.

Effects of hippotherapy on posture in individuals with Down Syndrome

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 equoherapia Hippotherapy obtained a better result of balance in the rear compared to non-practitioners.

However, the findings support the conclusion that the stimulus provided by the hippotherapy caused favorable changes in postural alignment. Materials and methods This study was a cross-sectional, analytical, observational study. The analyses were done individually and the post-test was performed after thirteen treatment sessions.

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.
