Using a soft fleece the child sits directly on the horse allowing the horse’s warmth and movement to help relax tight muscles. The equines gait pattern mimics the human gait so that the child feels symmetrical, rhythmical pattern in 3D movement to help improve balance and core stability. We use sitting forward as well as side sitting, backwards and even 4 point kneeling on the equine if it is of benefit.
Physiotherapy- Can offer onsite or home visits as required around the area, or via virtual assessments if required. Offering assessment and treatment with neuromuscular, neurological and developmental conditions.
Assessing what the current goals are using variety of techniques learnt over the years including Bobath training, Conductive Education, MAES training. It is really important working with children to keep it fun and use what motivates them. Working for over 20 years I have a lot of experience to take ideas from and find you need variety with children with long term conditions to keep them positive about physiotherapy.
Fudgephysio can offer a full Hippotherapy Experience – (2 hour) includes brushing, petting, giving time for sibling riding as well, feeding, and afternoon tea for the family. This allows time for the children to relax around the horse, build a relationship and help communication skills. We have a playhouse, swings and toys to help entertain the sibling that so often that so often gets left waiting during therapy.
