improve balance, posture, and well-being
Hippotherapy is a treatment strategy used by trained physical, occupational, and speech therapists as part of an integrated therapy plan of care. Hippotherapy has been shown to improve muscle tone, balance, posture, coordination, motor development, and emotional well-being (AHA, 2011).
Miracles has partnered with St. Luke's, Witwer, ChildServe, and the University of Iowa Center for Disabilities & Development. Sessions are 30 minutes long. Billing is done through the therapy agencies.
Please check with your medical provider and/or therapist concerning participation in hippotherapy sessions. For more information, please write to Parentrep@miraclesinmotion.net
