Welcome to FudgePhysio, the home of independent Physio and Hippotherapy tailored to your child’s individual needs.
Physiotherapy with children is a specialist area and needs an element of fun to keep your child motivated and positive. Children require specialised treatment from an experienced therapist as they have anatomical, physiological and psychological differences to an adult.
Hippotherapy uses the 3 dimensional movement of the horse in walk to correct and improve movement, balance, core strength, in the person on the horse. It has been shown to benefit children with cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, brain and spinal cord injuries and many other people with movement disorders. Research has shown that the functional ability of these people improves following a course of Hippotherapy and can be maintained over a follow up period. Children with autism and other learning disabilities have also benefited from this form of therapy. hippotherapy physiotherapy
