Born and raised in Yarrawonga, Ben moved to Melbourne to study Health Sciences at Deakin before returning to study Physiotherapy at Charles Sturt University in Albury. Ben's career has seen him work everywhere from major trauma centres at Metropolitan hospitals, to rehabilitation centres for amputees and people with spinal cord injuries, as well as working in local community based private clinics. It is this breadth and depth of experience that has given Ben deep insight into the healthcare system as well as a strong understanding of what people go through in their health journey. Ben uses this experience to apply a holistic, or biopsychosocial approach when dealing with each persons health issues to ensure each person gets their very best outcome. Ben's clinical passions are the pain sciences (understanding how the pain system works), exercise and movement and bioplasticity (how the body adapts). Outside of work Ben loves all outdoor activities, especially cricket, football, mountain biking, kayaking and running.
