The activity proposed for the PG was hippotherapy equoterrapia, while the NPG did not undertake any type of activity with objectives similar to those of hippotherapy.

Arch Phys Med Rehabil.


sindrlme The Kolmogorov-Smirnov test was performed to evaluate the normalcy of data distribution. Previously, medical records of patients with diagnosis of DS attending APAE were analyzed to obtain data such as age, sex and medications in use. It was also possible to compare, within the group that practiced hippotherapy, the difference between boys and girls, and, with equoterapix results of the tests, to correlate this difference to age and time practicing hippotherapy.

Inferential statistics by means of the Levene test were used to check the homoscedasticity of the variables, evaluating equality or not of the variances between variables of the groups. All measurements were performed with the nostrils closed with a nasal clip, in order to prevent air from escaping through the nose.

Specifically in tasks such as the balance beam, single jump and side jump, besides global motor coordination. The respiratory system in muscular distrophy. Patients with DS demonstrated satisfactory changes in motor behavior reflected in improved static posture after treatment with hippotherapy. This demonstrates that motor stimulation, whether with Hippotherapy or other modalities, promotes gain in motor coordination in children with DS.

Values of maximal expiratory pressure are greater compared to those of re inspiratory pressure in children and adolescents of both sexes The main physical characteristics common to children with DS include hypotonia, ligament laxity and reduced muscle strength. Beltz Test GmbH; Assisted motor development balances the thorax and abdomen, maintaining a balance point between these two cavities, and thus adjusting lung capacity and volumes.

The 45 agreed and their legal guardians signed the TCLE.

Regardless, the values of the PG were greater than those equoterapiq the NPG, showing that hippotherapy can affect this variable. The effect of hippotherapy on functional outcomes for children with disabilities: However, xe may print, download, or email articles for individual use. 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 Horseback riding in children with cerebral palsy: Hippotherapy has become widespread as a therapeutic agent justified by its goals of stimulating the individual as a whole, favoring the neuromotor functions.


Studies show that muscular hypotonia in individuals with SD leads to increased susceptibility to reduced dow capacity due to disability of the transversus abdominis muscle, which fails to create synergy with the diaphragm, and decreases the action of the oblique muscles, which biomechanically stabilize the ribcage. Therefore, the greater the time that Hipppotherapy performs, the greater the value of the variables in question.

To obtain the subjects who did not practice Hippotherapy GCindividuals were selected who attended the following philanthropic institutions of the Federal District: The motor coordination test – Koperkoordination Test furKinder KTK proposed by Kiphard and Schilling 22 dosn then applied, with the presence of a psychologist, who voluntarily participated in the research, in order to analyze whether the included individuals were comprehending the guidelines for carrying out sindrone activities, and for those who have difficulties, how could they be guided in the best way.

Dev Med Child Neurol. 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. The statistical analysis evidenced that this deviation was present in the right side of the body, because in the left side view, there was no significant difference in the assessed distances.

Over the years, joint wear and musculoskeletal abnormalities that affect muscle strength quality can also develop 6.

Association between physical activity and motor skills and coordination in Portuguese children. These data corroborate our findings, which equoteeapia that the stimuli provided by hippotherapy contribute to a better alignment of biomechanical structures, especially in shoulder and hip alignment and thoracic kyphosis.

Influence of artificial saddle riding on postural stability in children with CP. Postural assessment of girls between 7 and 10 years of age. On the other hand, even not using changes in horse gait speed during the hippotherapy sessions in this study, there was postural improvements in individuals with DS. 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.


Considering the sindromf presented by Neder et al. Effect of hippotherapy in the global motor coordination in individuals with Down Syndrome. Hippotherapy and respiratory muscle strength in children and adolescents with Down syndrome. Similarly, Alexandre et al. Moreover, it also shows that the time individuals who perform Hippotherapy have a strong 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.

In the census, the IBGE found that about 24, people Original articles Hippotherapy and equoerapia muscle strength in children and adolescents 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.

Immediate effects of a hippotherapy session on gait parameters in children with spastic cerebral palsy. Comparing the data available from the middle of last century and today, doan increase in life expectancy of this population is evident 5. Hippotherapy helps patients to firm their hypotonic musculature To analyze the effects of a hippotherapy program on respiratory muscle strength in individuals with Down syndrome.

Discussion It was observed, in the present study, that for both genders the mean values of the tasks performed by d Hippotherapy group were superior when compared to the individuals of the control group.

This was also observed in this study, where in both groups the mean values of these variables were greater for MEP than MIP. The same result was found by Maia 39 who carried out a research with DS patients, aiming to verify the influence on the number of weekly sessions of physical activity in the level of motor coordination.
