Have Something To Contribute?
The world is experiencing unprecedented change. Although it means thinking and acting differently, it also presents great opportunity. We're interested in growing a network that celebrates, showcases and supports the involvement of all osteopaths in sport. A network that is collaborative, sharing knowledge, so that all involved may learn and grow towards a common goal.
If you have something further to offer with a burning desire to contribute more to this growing network, OSN would love to hear from you.
Osteo Sports Network FAQ’s
Osteo Sports Network was founded in 2018 by one of Osteopathy Australia’s first Advanced Sports Practitioners, Louise Bibby (Sports Osteopath) with the sole purpose to create a dedicated arena for osteopaths interested in sport and inspire others to be involved.
Realising that osteopaths lacked opportunities in sport unlike some other allied health professions, Louise felt a strong desire to contribute to a powerful movement of enhancing osteopathic representation in sport, on and off the field.
Members of OSN have a special interest in working with athletes, have a commitment to further development, and promote best practice principles in the management of athletes in an evidence informed manner through science, sports medicine and research.
OSN continues to develop and enhance relationships with the very best professionals in sport, athlete management, performance and sports medicine. A team environment ensures best sports management practice.
