MTRA Partners with AdventHealth

AdventHealth Pediatric Rehab Ocala is now offering hippotherapy in partnership with Marion Therapeutic Riding Association (MTRA)

hippotherapy

Hippotherapy is a tool that speech, occupational and physical therapy use as treatment in conjunction with a horse. Currently, we are only able to offer speech therapy services, but we are working towards our goal of the addition of occupational and physical therapy services in the near future.

Our therapists are trained through the American Hippotherapy Association to use equine movement as a therapy tool to engage sensory, neuromotor and cognitive systems to help patients improve their function.

Benefits can be seen as early as within 4-5 sessions demonstrating a positive impact on outcomes for patients.

Therapy sessions are held at the Marion Therapeutic Riding Association, located at 6850 SW 41st Court, Ocala.
