ABOUT JUDY GREEN

Judy is an amazing teacher/educator.  She brings her countless years of clinical experience and really simplifies and consolidates anatomical, structural and functional principles.  She is very clear in explaining the concepts of her courses.  She has really augmented my paediatric clinical knowledge.  I feel very comfortable in utilizing the skills and techniques in my practice.  Such positive and insightful courses!  Very grateful for her knowledge and ability to share and teach this valuable information.

COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

Courses 1 (A/B1), 2 (B2/C), 3 (D) +  Clinical Integration Courses

These courses will provide a framework for the assessment and treatment of the infant; newborn to 3 months and 3 months through the process of becoming increasingly more vertical to walking. The stabilization activity and dynamic movement patterns of the first 3 months are key to the baby attaining the best ideal movement moving forward through the stages of development from 3 months to walking.

The assessment will focus on movement fundamentals based in Development Kinesiology with a deepened knowledge of anatomy and function of the deep stabilizing system. The principles of midline, the fascial system and normalization of muscle, joint and fluid field will be explored with labs to orient the function of the newborn to optimal and comfortable stabilization patterns.  All lab work will be oriented to the hands-on application of manual therapy skills with goal oriented decisions based in movement kinesiology for efficient treatment and successful outcomes.

These courses will provide a strong understanding of the organic, natural milestones of the baby necessary for assessment, treatment and re-evaluation.


These courses are focused on the assessment of non neurological patients and are designed for the paediatric practitioner who sees babies in clinic that may have a neck preference or torticollis, reflux, general discomfort, intolerance in tummy time, latching issues, poor quality in developmental milestones.  The infant may have experienced a difficult birth. 

These courses are also valuable for the practitioner with a primarily adult practice.


Increasingly, little ones are commonly brought into the clinic for manual therapeutic care and this course will up your game in the skills of assessing the baby, deciding on time-appropriate therapeutic intervention and giving movement based home advice for the parent. 

All courses must be taken in order and are pre-requisites for each other.

Core Course 1

(Formerly A/B1)

Course 1 has an emphasis on the deep stabilization system (diaphragm, intra-abdominal pressure and intrinsic core), and developmental stages of newborn to 3 months with an emphasis on supine.

Further, we will study the neck, midline, common neck dysfunctions, deep stabilization of the deep neck flexors and the uprighting function in prone in the developmental stages of newborn to 3 months.

Core Course 2

(Formerly B2/C)

Course 2, day one, is primarily lab oriented to compliment the online AB1 course and the clavicle and umbilicus.

Days two and three have an emphasis on the TL fascia, the shoulder, A/C joint and the 3-7 month milestones of grasping, uprighting and rolling.  Clinical integration of hands-on treatment of infants.

Core Course 3

(Formerly D)

Course 3 has an emphasis on the pelvis, pelvic floor, infant handling to facilitate positioning, home education and  7- 10 month milestones of transition through quadruped, oblique sitting to sitting, crawling and pulling up.  Clinical integration of hands-on treatment of infants.

 Clinical Integration Courses

Core and Advanced Courses

The clinical integration courses will provide plenty of hands-on experience with babies.

Core Clinical Integration Course 

Clinical Integration Course 1 is primarily an applied integration of all course work in Courses 1-3.  We will explore depth of understanding of the dysfunction limiting optimal expression in milestones.  We will deepen our skills in manual therapy in addressing the dysfunction identified.

Analysis of clinical findings, treatment planning, provision of treatment with infants and critical thinking.

The clinical integration course 1 is open to all with the prerequisite of Course 3.

Advanced Clinical Integration Courses

Advanced Clinical Integration courses can be taken in any order with the prerequisite of Core Clinical Integration Course 

Topics for Clinical Integration Courses TBA.

Advanced Clinical Courses for Osteopathic Manual Practitioners

Core Clinical Integration Course will be a pre-requisite for future Advanced Clinical Courses specifically for OMP's which may have other pre requisites for attendance as well.

These courses will be advanced integration for osteopathic manual practitioners with the credentials required for membership in the Canadian Federation of Osteopaths (CFO).

 (planning in process for 2025).

About Judy Green


Over the past 20 years, Judy has been treating infants and young children as a particular passion. Judy previously worked as a physiotherapist specializing in neurology, brain injury and traumatic pain and in her early career, worked as a senior physiotherapist in Intensive Care.
On completion of her osteopathic studies and presentation of her thesis in 2001, she pursued continuing education in the field and has studied under many Osteopathic teachers including being mentored by Dr. James Jealous since 1995; having completed all adult phases 1-9 and paediatric phases 1-3, and has taken post graduate courses at the CCO and CEO.  Judy became a certified Paediatric DNS Practitioner in Prague in 2015 and is currently the only certified Paediatric Vojta therapist (Applied Developmental Kinesiology for Babies) in North America, having completed the 8 week course in Siegen, Germany in 2017.  Her studies in Germany allowed deep insight into the developmental kinesiology as related to the emergent stabilization and movement mechanisms of the first year of life.  This knowledge has allowed Judy to develop an evaluation system which is relevant to the timely provision of osteopathic treatment; creating ease in knowing which interventions are essential to the underpinnings of infant developmental milestones.  Judy developed the courses "Assessment and Treatment of the Young Baby" and provided the first courses in 2020.   The courses have been very well received and over 75 manual practitioners have participated since inception.   It is with pleasure that she offers these special courses to manual practitioners and continues to update and add clinical courses yearly.
