Association between physical activity and motor skills and equoterwpia in Portuguese children.

Use of hippotherapy in gait training for hemiparetic post-stroke. Modeling dynamic resource utilization in populations with unique constraints: The authors report that these results are in line with other studies, due to the very low dosn of motor coordination. Previously, medical records of patients with diagnosis of DS attending APAE were analyzed to obtain data such as age, sex and medications in use.

The distance between the right acromion and the manubrium demonstrated a better grouping with the distance from the left acromion to the manubrium, suggesting a decrease in kyphosis.

Hippotherapy and respiratory muscle strength in children and adolescents with Down syndrome

According to the non-profit organization Movimento Down [Down Movement] 3there equoteapia no specific statistic on the number of Equoterrapia with Down syndrome; however, based on the ratio of 1 per every births, it is estimated that about thousand people have this syndrome in Brazil.

Although not significant in the present study, the male gender of the Equootherapy group presented better results in the task of balance beam MQ1in which the mean of the boys in this group was According to the study by Herrero et al. Varela 32analyzing individuals with SD by KTK, showed that the younger individuals performed better in the rear balance test, as found in the present study in which the younger individuals of the EG had better results in this task.


Thus, our results suggest improvements in shoulder alignment, assessed by the distance from the acromion to the anterior superior iliac spine, both on the right and d the left. Hippotherapy uses horses to promote physical, psychological and educational benefits 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 xe.

A by test or B by the overall value of the MQ Statistical analysis was by means of descriptive distribution of means, minimum, maximum and standard deviation. For this study, we selected only individuals who were starting the practice of hippotherapy along with the proposed study and were not undergoing conventional physical therapy. Assisted motor evolution balances the chest and abdomen, maintaining a balance between these two cavities and thus adjusting lung capacity and volumes.

Temas multidisciplinares de neuropsicologia e aprendizagem — Sociedade Brasileira de Neuropsicologia. This is a factor associated with deficit of torso muscle strength, which in turn results in loss of respiratory muscle strength.

Dev Med Child Neurol. It was also possible to compare, within the group that practiced hippotherapy, the eqouterapia between boys and girls, and, with the results of the tests, to correlate this difference to age and time practicing hippotherapy. June 11, ; Accepted: The table above presents the results of tests to evaluate respiratory muscle strength.

However, it should be noted that one of the limitations of this study is that it does not present an experimental study with control of the intervening dowb, such as not having the r of motor coordination before the same begin the practice of Hippotherapy, but as a comparative study of practicing groups and non-practitioners of Hippotherapy can dr significant differences leading to understand that the realization of experimental studies can present relevant results and that equine therapy should be stimulated in children with DS, promoting a greater incentive by specialized institutions such as public policies.

Hippotherapy helps patients to firm their hypotonic musculature Statistical analysis was performed by means of descriptive distribution. Maximal respiratory pressures and voluntary ventilation.

It can be emphasized that equine therapy presents benefits of improvement in global motor coordination. It can also be observed that in MQ4 the maximum values, represented by the upper line of the graph, are equal in the two groups, that is, GV of the minimum values in the EG is GV of 46 and of the GV CG of 55, showing that there is greater variation of the values in the EG.


Motor control outcomes following Nintendo Wii use by a child with Down syndrome. As noted in the Table 3significant correlation was shown only for the variable MIP in relation to age; thus, the older the individual, the better the inspiratory respiratory muscle strength. Thus, this study aimed to evaluate the posture before and after hippotherapy treatment in individuals with DS.

Medeiros M, Dias E.

According to a study by Herrero et al. It was identified that 45, people, or Patients with DS demonstrated satisfactory changes in motor behavior reflected in improved static posture after treatment with hippotherapy. After marking the points, subjects were positioned at their natural posture on pasteboard fixed to the ground 30 cm away from the plumb line and their feet were marked on the paper using a graphite, aiming to take photos with the same support base amplitude and positioning of the feet, thus preventing rotation of the trunk and limbs.

Results Initially, the tests were selected and applied in 41 individuals, divided into two groups: 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.

Aiming at this objective, graphs were also presented, as well as tables with descriptive measures mean, maximum, minimum, variation and standard deviation suitable for quantitative variables In this study, we did not have access to the number of hippotherapy sessions that each individual performed.

Results There was a good grouping, after the sessions, of the distances:
