At Ropes and Roses Therapy Services, we specialize in hippotherapy. This treatment is a vital component of our services. Hippotherapy is a treatment that makes use of equine movement to help individuals with an autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, developmental delays, and other similar conditions. Through this, our licensed therapists apply horse rhythm, movement, and repetition as a means of achieving optimal therapeutic outcomes.
How Does Hippotherapy Work?
Hippotherapy, or equine-assisted therapy, is mainly about movement. A horse’s pelvis is similar to the human pelvis’ three-dimensional planes. This movement, therefore, is multi-dimensional and offers a system-wide impact. By obtaining the movement transmitted by the horse’s pelvis, patients can develop the skills needed for day-to-day living.
Essentially, combining a horse’s lively movement with the dynamic environment promotes the suitable neurological and sensory input each patient can most benefit from.
