Ben graduated in 1995 from Uni SA school of Physiotherapy having been awarded prizes for the highest academic achievement in the course and the prize for the best human relationship skills. Before deciding to be a physio, Ben originally wanted to be a chef, followed by an architect.
After graduating, Ben was fortunate enough to gain one of five new graduate positions at the Royal Adelaide Hospital, which ignited his interest in acute care, particularly acute orthopaedics. Here, Ben gained a broad knowledge base working across a variety of areas developing skills that he would call upon later in his musculoskeletal practice. Ben worked in the hospital for 2 years, predominantly in orthopaedics and outpatients, and this is where his interest in shoulders began.
In 2002, after 7 years of working in Adelaide and internationally, Ben returned to study his Masters of Physiotherapy- Manips, full time. Since the completion of his Masters, he has worked in his own private practice clinics for almost 20 years, with extensive experience in golfing/sporting injuries, orthopaedics and spinal injuries.
Since the end of his Masters in 2002, Ben has opened and operated a number of physiotherapy clinics with the help of his wife, Michelle, across Adelaide. Ben remains committed to achieving high standards for our clients and staff and recognised as being leaders in our profession.
Ben’s main areas of interest include:
- Spinal Conditions
- Sports and Golf Injuries
