Our therapy department employs licensed occupational therapists and licensed physical therapists who treat patients on an individual basis. A doctor’s prescription for occupational therapy and/or physical therapy is mandatory. Clients participate in an initial evaluation and consultation for the development of an appropriate treatment plan.
A client’s treatment strategy includes hippotherapy or equine movement for core strengthening, motor control, balance reactions and developmental sequencing that demand constant sensory input and modulation/integration of this input. The combination of movements serves to facilitate postural and motor control reactions in clients with mild to severe impairments or multiple disabilities. Our therapists work with each client to evaluate and modify the client’s response to achieve functional goals.
