Hippotherapy Simulation for Multiple Sclerosis Helps Mobility, Muscle Strength – Neurology Advisor

Hippotherapy simulation has a positive effect on balance, mobility skills, and muscle strength among people with MS.

The use of horse-riding simulation exercises — known as hippotherapy — has demonstrated a positive effect on health conditions, balance, muscle strength, and mobility skills in individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS). These are the findings of a study published in Multiple Sclerosis and Related Disorders.

Prior studies have shown hippotherapy to be a workout of the whole body, which is carried out using core muscles and many joints. Researchers of the current study sought to establish the efficacy of hippotherapy simulation exercise on the improvement of muscle strength, spasticity, balance, and quality of life in patients with MS.
