The Nighthawks announced today that Physio Room will be the team’s official medical partner for the 2016 MLU season.
As the Nighthawks look to return to the top of Major League Ultimate’s Western Conference, their partnership with Physio Room will critically help their players return to the field quickly following injuries.
“We saw this as a good opportunity to partner and support a professional team that is based locally, in a sport that is both competitive and fun.” said Nick Lo, Physio Room’s owner and a physiotherapist in Vancouver.
With two locations in the Vancouver Metropolitan Area, Physio Room offers quality, one-on-one care for athletes of sports at all levels. Known for superior care and service, Physio Room has been named Best Physiotherapy Clinic in Vancouver 3 years in a row.
A physically taxing sport, ultimate requires athletes at all levels to take care when competing. Even with the most cautious athletes, injuries inevitably occur. With that in mind, the Nighthawks sought out a top level physical therapy partner to help keep their athletes on the field in top condition.
“The crux of our relationship with Physio Room is our care for the players.” said Billy Sickles, MLU Partnership Development Associate. “We feel very confident that Physio Room’s attention to quality care, state of the art facilities, staff, and equipment will be an enormous asset to the Nighthawks this year. We are very excited to have Physio Room on board for the 2016 season and for years to come.”
Additionally during the season, the team will publish the “Vancouver Nighthawks Injury Report presented by Physio Room” before each game. These reports, published on the team’s web properties, will be an invaluable resource to all fans following the team, but particularly to those involved in MLU Fantasy.
Meet the team from Physio Room and see the Nighthawks in action at their Season Opener against the Portland Stags at UBC’s Thunderbird Stadium on April 16th at 6pm.
