The Botany Swarm warmly welcomes Sankaran “Sunny” Murugan to the 2019 management team.
Sunny has been re-appointed as Botany Swarm Physio/Team Medic – a position which he held during the 2018 season.
He is a trained physiotherapist who runs a small Ponsonby-based physiotherapy practice called Physio360 with two other physiotherapists and an acupuncturist.
Sunny developed a special interest in ice hockey following his appointment as Team Physiotherapist for the New Zealand Ice Blacks during the 2018 hockey season. More recently, he was appointed Team Physiotherapist for the New Zealand Ice Fernz and will assistant the national team when they start their campaign early in 2019.
His favourite treatment is dry needling. The use of laser therapy for a quick injury recovery is a close second.
Sunny brings a calm and professional approach to the medical requirements of the Botany Swarm team. He is always willing to go above and beyond and during the upcoming 2019 season, will ensure our team is fighting fit for each New Zealand Ice Hockey League game.
