Physical Therapists integrate equine movement into a client’s treatment plan to achieve functional goals in a process known as Hippotherapy. The rhythmic, multi-dimensional movement of the equines provides continuous motor and sensory input for clients ages 2 & up. Therapists customize every session to the unique needs of each client to help achieve treatment goals within the specialized plan of care. Sessions may incorporate work in the barn, the indoor arena, the outdoor arena, and the interactive exploration paths.
