Ben is a Practice Principal at St George Physiotherapy and Pilates. He graduated from the University of Otago (NZ) in 2001 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Physiotherapy and completed a Masters Level Post Graduate Diploma in Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy at Auckland University of Technology in 2006. He has worked and managed sports injury clinics in Auckland and the United Kingdom as well working with the Marist North Harbour Rugby Club, New Zealand Woman’s Basketball and New Zealand Women’s Rugby teams.
Ben has always had an interest in running injuries, which provided the foundation for his interest in lower limb and running based injuries and treadmill gait analysis. Having treated so many marathon runners, took the plunge himself and began marathon running for charity. He feels this now means he can fully understand what runners go through when suffering injuries both physically and psychologically (Yes runners are definitely a different breed of individual!).
Ben has also developed a special interest in the the conservative and post operative rehabilitation of knee injuries. He has spent the past few years also working alongside orthopaedic surgeons at Sydney Knee Specialists in Kogarah, providing an independent assessment of their post op ACL patients and developing a testing protocol aimed at reducing risk of reinjury and gaining best possible recovery.
