COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

Course A & B

This course will provide a framework for the assessment and treatment of the infant; newborn to 3 months. The stabilization activity and dynamic movement patterns of the first 3 months are key to the baby attaining the best ideal movement during the following stages of development from 3 months to walking.

The assessment will focus on movement fundamentals based in Development Kinesiology and the application to decision-making in osteopathic treatment.

The course will describe concepts of stabilization, axial (vertical) elongation, and expected movement patterns.

These courses are focused on the assessment of non neurological patients and is for the Osteopathic practitioner who sees babies who 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.  Course A will be a pre-requisite for upcoming courses.

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

These little ones are commonly brought into the clinic for osteopathy and this course will increase your skill in assessing the baby, deciding on time-appropriate osteopathic intervention and home advice for the parent. 

Please note:  The combined Course A/B will include all of the course content described below in the Course A and Course B outline, however there will be some changes to the order of some topics to adjust to the virtual/In-person format being offered at this time due to lockdown and Covid restrictions.

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 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.
