Michael is a spunky, energetic Kindergartner with a keen sense of humor! It is hard to imagine but Michael suffered a traumatic brain injury and subsequent stroke when he was only 18 months old. This devastating accident left Michael with a cascade of impairments. In the summer of 2017, Michael’s mother Ana became interested in the use of hippotherapy (equine movement) as a treatment tool to aid in Michael’s recovery. Michael started receiving occupational therapy (OT) at Trio Therapy Partners and has missed very few appointments since! Adding equine movement to his treatment plan has helped Michael achieve tremendous functional progress over the last three years!
This therapy has helped Michael a lot and I see improvement all the time as he is walking better and using his right hand more and more. Ana R
