i’ve had ms for 23 years (49 now), spms since 2012. i’m in a powerchair fulltime and can no longer transfer by myself, as my left arm and hand no longer work.
it has been suggested to me to try hippotherapy, in order to improve my balance and posture. i have very limited upper body strength and tend to slump to one side in my wheelchair. i can no longer sit upright without proper support.
has anyone – especially those with more advanced ms – done hippotherapy, and has it helped you?
i’m booked for a trial session next week, though i must admit that i’m quite nervous about it. never sat on a horse before, and it feels a bit intimidating, to be honest.
