Strides In Motion
Therapy In The Natural Setting
Strides In Motion is an outpatient physical therapy practice that incorporates both clinic based treatments and Hippotherapy to achieve a client’s functional goals in the natural setting.
In Hippotherapy, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech Language Pathologists utilize the unique 3-dimensional movement of the horse as a tool to address impairments, functional limitations and disabilities in patients with neuromusculoskeletal dysfunctions.
Strides In Motion serves children and adults with a wide range of diagnoses, including but not limited to Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Downs Syndrome, Developmental Delay, Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury, Spina Bifida and Multiple Sclerosis.
