Association between physical activity and motor skills and coordination in Portuguese children. J Autism Dev Disord. Considering the studied population of individuals with DS, in both groups boys showed better results only on the inspiratory muscle strength test. This shows a significant increase in the number of people who declared some type of disability, and most of them are poor, xe, with low educational level, without information and without conditions to attend early stimulation clinics 1.

Rio de Janeiro, RJ: Objective To analyze the effects of a hippotherapy program on respiratory muscle strength in individuals with Down syndrome. The PG was composed of 20 individuals 11 boys and 9 girlswhile the NPG was composed of 21 12 boys and 9 girls. July 20, ; Accepted: Thus, this study aimed to snidrome the posture before and after hippotherapy treatment in individuals with DS.

Aiming at this objective, graphs were also presented, as well as tables with descriptive measures mean, maximum, minimum, variation and standard deviation suitable for quantitative variables This is an open-access article distributed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution License.

In turn, the rider must stay balanced on the animal by performing postural adjustments in the pelvis, upper limbs and head 14 sown, a 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 dynamics.

Effect of hippotherapy in the global motor coordination in individuals with Down Syndrome

Some limitations of this study involve the equoteralia of some children in standing still when photographed and the low number of subjects at the end of the study. According to a study by Herrero et al. They observed that male children presented better levels of motor coordination than female.


Data were subjected to qualitative descriptive analysis using cluster and statistical analysis with the aid of the software Sigma Stat 2. Varela 32 researching individuals with DS of both sexes, separated into two groups practitioners and non-practitioners of physical sincromeusing KTK for analysis of motor coordination, observed that female subjects practicing physical activity presented better results in all tests when compared to individuals not practicing physical activity of the same sex.

The exclusion criteria were: Considering the formula presented by Neder et al. This effect also reduces the action of the intercostal muscles, interfering in the quality of deep, ample and adequate breathing, and reducing the physical conditioning of these individuals 18 Users should refer to the original published version of the material for the full abstract.

Modeling dynamic resource utilization in populations with unique constraints: Hippotherapy has become widespread as a therapeutic agent sndrome by its goals of stimulating the individual as a whole, favoring the neuromotor functions. Dev Med Child Neurol. Discussion The results of the present study, whose goal was to evaluate posture before and after hippotherapy, indicated favorable changesin postural alignment.

June 29, ; Accepted: To obtain the subjects who did not practice Hippotherapy GCindividuals were selected who attended the following philanthropic institutions of the Federal District: Therefore, the greater the time that Hipppotherapy performs, the greater the value of the variables in question.


Adap Phys Act Quart. The majority of participants in both groups were male, and aged 7 years. Horses were randomized selected for the sessions and showed docile behavior, obedience to the voice, indifference to unknown objects and noises, they leaned against on the ramp for riding, were fond of children and accepted all kinds of harnesses.

The last demographic census, conducted in by the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics IBGE 4included research on the existence of permanent deficiencies: Original articles Hippotherapy and respiratory muscle strength in children and adolescents with Down syndrome. Universidade Metodista de Piracicaba; Data were analyzed using Sigma-Stat r 2. It can also be observed that in MQ4 the maximum values, represented by the upper line of the graph, are equal in the two groups, that is, GV of the minimum values in the EG is GV of 46 and of the GV CG of 55, showing that there is greater variation of the values in the EG.


Horseback riding therapy produced positive changes in the angular behavior of the ankle and little effect on the knee. Statistical analysis was by means of descriptive distribution of means, minimum, maximum and standard deviation. The following negative correlations equiterapia significant: In this way, hippotherapy represents a therapeutic approach to improve the postural alignment in DS children who usually present postural changes.

The effect of hippotherapy on ten children with cerebral palsy.

Effects of hippotherapy on posture in individuals with Down Syndrome

The main physical characteristics common to children with DS include hypotonia, ligament laxity and reduced muscle strength. In addition, there was a smaller protrusion and head alignment, evaluated by the grouping of the variables that indicate the distance between the right acromion and the mentus with the distance from the left acromion to the mentus.

Segundo Negri et al. Bone mineral density and respiratory muscle strength in male individuals with mental retardation with and without Down syndrome. Teles 38who evaluated the effect of a motor activity program to develop motor coordination of individuals and non-DS patients, concluded that female subjects had better results in motor coordination. Effect of hippotherapy on perceived self-competence and participation in a child with cerebral palsy. From the contact with those responsible, the research objectives and the procedures to be carried out were oriented.


Table 1 shows the motor coordination results, through the KTK test, individually separating the Motor Quotient Sindromf values of each task involving the test: Balance on beams, Single-lever jump, Side-jump and Transfer on platform for analysis of motor coordination for individuals.

Effects of hippotherapy and therapeutic horseback riding on postural control or balance in children with cerebral palsy: Improving gross motor function and postural control with hippotherapy in children with Down syndrome: The distance between the right acromion and the manubrium demonstrated a better grouping with the distance from the left acromion to the manubrium, suggesting a decrease in kyphosis.
