Physiotherapy, Chiropractic & Massage Therapy all under one roof
The Windsor Spitfires Hockey Club is pleased to announce the addition of Sabga Physiotherapy Centre as the club’s official provider of Physiotherapy, Chiropractic and Massage Therapy services for the 2014-15 season.
A Windsor based company, Sabga has expanded greatly since opening in 2008, with now three locations – their original spot at 2055 Huron Church Line, 2462 Howard Avenue in Windsor and 186 Talbot Street South in Essex. They also offer hydrotherapy services at Solaris Rehabilitation, 1505 Ouellette Avenue.
It’s a relationship that will greatly benefit the club’s players, says Athletic Therapist, Joey Garland.
“Sabga has quickly become an industry leader,” Garland said. “And it’s easy to see why. Their professionalism and enthusiasm to work with the Spitfires have been evident since the first time I met with them. Having all three services under one roof will provide our players with outstanding physical support.”
That sentiment is shared at Sabga, where a team of three primary service providers will work closely with Garland.
“Our role here is to really facilitate the great work that Joey is doing,” said Physiotherapist Curtis Murray-Watters, who is also currently the goaltending coach for the University of Windsor Lancers women’s hockey team. “Whatever we can do for him, here, that’s our goal. It’s all about benefitting the players.”
“Good therapy leads to great performances on the ice.”
Along with the trio of service elements, an important part of Sabga’s work with the Spitfires will be in better educating players in terms of maintaining their physical wellness.
“Whether it’s their posture, stretches they can do a little better,” said Registered Massage Therapist, Matthew Tyler. “Whatever we can do to give them that extra little bit of agility, flexibility, that can be the difference that gives them that slight edge over somebody on a performance level.”
Owner Theven Sagba summarized Sabga’s primary goals in working with the Spits.
“Efficient accurate diagnosis,” Sabga said. “Knowing when they can return from their time off the ice and taking some protective measures.”
As Garland emphasized, the enthusiasm Sabga staffers have demonstrated as they embark on this new partnership is infectious. Spending time with them provided some real insight into their positivity and nurturing culture.
“We’ve all known each other for years,” Murray-Watters added. “I’ve known (Doctor) Jeff Collison since we were kids. Having that collaboration and familiarity will make a big difference. Much like the Spitfires on the ice, this is a true team effort. We can’t wait to get started!”
