Amazon Music Stream millions of songs. Values of maximal expiratory pressure are greater compared to those of maximal inspiratory pressure in children and adolescents of both sexes The maneuvers were sustained for a minimum period of 2 seconds, with verbal encouragement from the evaluator. The effect of hippotherapy on ten children with cerebral palsy.

In this study, we did not have access to the number of hippotherapy sessions that each individual performed. Similarly, Alexandre et al. For this reason, these values were excluded.

The results of this study suggest that the practice of hippotherapy may influence respiratory muscle strength in patients with Down syndrome, of both sexes and aged between 7 and 13 years, when compared with individuals with Down syndrome who do not practice hippotherapy. This is a factor associated with deficit of torso muscle strength, which in turn results in loss of respiratory muscle strength.

Table 2 presents the major descriptive measurements that represent respiratory muscle strength MIP and MEP and the P-value of the Mann-Whitney U test, which was applied because these variables pointed to unequal variances in the homoscedasticity test, as shown above. According to the test, there was no significant difference for the variables under analysis, even though the raw values for the two variables were better in the PG.


It is noteworthy that for Scanlan et al. Participants were aged between 7 and 13 years. Reference values for lung function tests. J Autism Dev Disord.

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

fsiioterapia Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go. It was also possible to compare, within the group that practiced hippotherapy, the difference between boys and girls, and, with the results of the tests, to correlate this difference to age and time practicing hippotherapy. The main physical characteristics common to children with DS include hypotonia, ligament laxity and reduced muscle strength.

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 Maximal respiratory pressures in children. Among individuals who practice hippotherapy, the best results for respiratory muscle strength were for more advanced ages.

Hippotherapy helps patients to firm their hypotonic musculature Hippotherapy has been shown to produce improvements in postural and motor control in special populations with cerebral palsy, genetic disorders, developmental delays and Down syndrome 16which reaffirms the theory that this therapy is beneficial for individuals with these equoterapa.


In turn, the rider must stay balanced on the animal by performing postural adjustments in the pelvis, upper limbs and head 14a process that encourages favorable changes in some kinematic variables in the gait of children with DS, and contributes to improve balance deficits, stability of the walking pattern and also in the torso musculature, which is responsible for respiratory fisiotdrapia.

Individuals with Down syndrome may have decreased respiratory muscle strength due to hypotonia, a common characteristic in this population.

Maximal respiratory pressures and voluntary ventilation. I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle? How to cite this article. Every minute, about 20 babies are born with some kind of disability, totaling approximately 9. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Rev Fisioter S Fun. Comparing the data available from the middle of last century and today, the increase in life expectancy of this population is evident 5.

The measurement of maximal respiratory pressures can help to direct therapeutic objectives, identify early respiratory diseases and classify their severity, and evaluate responses to therapies 9.

Hippotherapy is a therapeutic and educational method that uses horseback riding in an interdisciplinary approach to education and health, mainly aiming for motor rehabilitation and education for the biopsychosocial development of poeple with disabilities. Universidade Metodista de Piracicaba; equoteeapia Introduction Every minute, about 20 babies are born with some kind of disability, totaling approximately 9. This study demonstrates that hippotherapy benefits respiratory muscle strength in individuals with Down syndrome, and that the youngest subjects had the best results.
