Osteopathic Sports Care

# An integral part of an inter-disciplinary team

A message from Lord Coe

"The Olympic and Paralympic Games in London 2012 were unique in its provision of Medical and Paramedical services provided to athletes. For the first time in Olympic history, Osteopaths were invited to be part of the Central Medical Team. Twenty-five highly dedicated osteopathic experts gave their time to volunteer as part of the Physical Therapies team, looking after athletes and support staff from all over the world. Osteopaths were present for the duration of both the Olympic and Paralympic Games, located in polyclinics at each major Olympic village, performing over 900 medical encounters. The incredible success of London 2012 showcased the determination, enthusiasm and commitment of all those involved. Osteopaths were part of a team of 70,000 games makers who played an integral role to help create that legacy, which lit up the world and I thank them for their time, their professionalism and their dedication to the athletes. If this successful legacy is one we can take to Rio 2016, then it is sure to follow London's footsteps in being a resoundingly successful Games."
