    Ridterapi som habiliteringsverktyg: Förbättrar ridterapi koordination hos barn med cerebral pares?2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Cerebral palsy is a brain injury that gives the patient muscle contraction and spasticity. This causes movement disorders to a different extent. Cerebral palsy is a, usually congenital, chronic condition which can be habilitated with the help of proper care. Hippotherapy uses the horse’s movements to treat the patient. The horse’s varied, rhythmic, repetitive movements provide a physical and sensory feedback to the rider that is believed to improve the body's postural control, strength and balance of the patient. The aim of this literaturestudy was to find out if hippotherapy can improve coordination in children with Cerebral palsy. Nine articles has been used in this study. The articles were found in Pubmed database. The results shows that hippotherapy can improve mobility, functional performance, fine motor capacity, balance and postural control in children with Cerebral palsy. The improvements last over time, at least for children with GMFCS I-III. The studies that has been used are all small and diverse. Bigger and more specified studies are needed to gain safer results.
