Objective To analyze the effects of a hippotherapy program on respiratory muscle strength in individuals with Sindroome syndrome.

Photographs were obtained with individuals in swimwear, standing erect in the views: The KTK consists of a battery consisting of four items: The same authors evaluated respiratory function and created a profile of DS children aged between 5 and 12 years, revealing low values of respiratory muscle strength.

J Equiterapia Dev Disord. The main physical characteristics common to children with DS include hypotonia, ligament laxity and reduced equotearpia strength. In this study, no significant differences were observed in the comparison between sexes, thus showing that sex may not be a factor modulating the motor coordination gain in children with DS who practice equine therapy.

The sample was composed of children and adolescents of both sexes, selected by convenience, where a prior visit to the institutions was undertaken to present the project to the [therapy] coordinators and preselect the subjects who could participate in the study, according to the inclusion criteria described above. Predictive equations and normal values for maximal respiratory pressures in sndrome and adolescence. Such changes reflected in an improvement in static posture, better alignment of shoulders, head, hip, lower limbs, decreased kyphosis and head protrusion.

This line was marked with two Styrofoam balls at a distance ce 1 m from each other, following the software recommendations, to perform the vertical calibration of the images using the application.

Conclusion This study demonstrates that hippotherapy benefits respiratory muscle strength in individuals with Down syndrome, and that the youngest subjects had the best results. Inferential statistics by means eqioterapia the Levene test were used to check the homoscedasticity of the variables, evaluating equality or not of the variances between variables of the groups. In a study with 40 children aged between 8 and 17 years, Wagener et al.

Censo [cited Feb 18]. 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 variables, such as not having the information 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 identify 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.

For both sexes, the mean values of the tasks performed by the PG were higher in comparison to individuals in the NPG Table 4.


Hippotherapy helps patients to firm their hypotonic musculature In Hippotherapy, three-dimensional movements, provided by horse walking, awaken in the body of children with DS a large amount of sensory and neuromuscular stimuli, eequoterapia directly interfere with overall development and the acquisition of motor skills. 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 squoterapia the boys in this group was It is understood that these data becomes relevant for evaluating children with DS and practice of Hippotherapyy o motor stimulus.

Results and discussion The tests were selected and applied on 41 individuals; however, during analysis of the data, df means of the boxplot, discrepant outlier values of two individuals in the NPG were found, which could have influenced the results of the analysis.

Otherwiseour findings can strengthen the indication found in the literature on the use of hippotherapy as a potential intervention for people with DS and postural changes.

Postural assessment of girls between 7 and 10 years of age. Effects of hippotherapy and therapeutic horseback riding on postural control or balance in children with cerebral palsy: Zadnikar M, Kastrin A. Effects of Experience and Pratice.

Results There was a good grouping, after the sessions, of the distances: Data were analyzed using Sigma-Stat r 2. Perception-Action Coupling in infants with Down syndrome: Varela 32 researching individuals with DS of both sexes, separated into two groups practitioners and non-practitioners of physical activityusing KTK for analysis of motor coordination, observed that female subjects practicing physical activity presented better results in all tests when compared to individuals not practicing physical activity of the same sex.

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 sindgome 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.

They were selected, first, through the records of the institutions and annotated the sindorme contacts of the parents of 45 individuals. 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. Over the years, joint wear and musculoskeletal abnormalities that affect muscle strength quality can also develop 6.


Data statistically analyzed consisted of distance measurements determined previously, comparing the data before and after hippotherapy sessions. Original articles Effect of hippotherapy in the global motor coordination in individuals with Down Syndrome.

Dysfunctions in postural control are often described in children with DS and related to difficulties such o motor coordination, problems with sensory-motor integration or simply as awkward movements, which are thus considered by Polastri and Barela 7 and Webber, Virji -Babul and Lesperance 9 when individuals are slow to adapt to the changing task and conditions of the environment or are less able to make anticipatory postural adjustments.

Conclusion By means of photogrammetry, before and after hippotherapy sessions, it is concluded that individuals with DS included in this study showed satisfactory changes in equoterpia behavior. According to Mauerberg-Decastro 30 advocates that mental deficiency affects sensory integration, accumulating deficits of primitive reflexes appearing with changes of muscle tone equoterappia postural underadaptation, causing problems in their dynamic balance and exploration of space.

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

According to a study by Herrero et al. Discussion It was observed, in the present study, that for equoterapiz genders the mean values of the tasks performed by sindroe Hippotherapy group were superior when compared to the individuals of the control group.

Materials and methods The study included 41 subjects, 20 of which were in the hippotherapy practicing group PG and 21 of which were in the non-practicing group NPG. An investigation into the effects on pelvic mobility of children with cerebral palsy of a powered saddle which imitates the movements of a walking horse. Services on Demand Journal. Original Articles Effects of hippotherapy on posture in individuals with Down Syndrome.

Improvements were achieved for the alignment of shoulder, head, hip, and lower limbs, in addition to decrease in kyphosis and head protrusion. In the Figure 1it is observed that the median of the MIP variable is the same for both groups, meaning that the halves of the values of the two groups were the same, even though the mean of the PG Modeling dynamic resource utilization in populations with unique constraints: In the case of child development, it is observed that children with DS exhibit delay in the development of motor skills, indicating that this milestone appears at a different time when compared to children with normal development 78.

The utility of spirometry in diagnosing pulmonary restriction. Horse movement is a favoring element of postural alignment and balance reactions, stimulating and increasing muscle contraction and postural control.

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

Motricidade Orofacial — como atuam os especialistas. To record KTK test data, a self-administered questionnaire was used and all subjects were evaluated by the same investigator to reduce possible procedural errors among the samples They observed that male children presented equoterwpia levels of motor coordination than female.

This study demonstrates that hippotherapy benefits respiratory muscle strength in individuals with Down syndrome, and that the youngest subjects had the best results.
