Hi, I'm Ben, it's great to meet you!
I am a 22 year old Graduate Physiotherapist, with an interest in sports and acute injuries.
Growing up playing a lot of basketball, I’ve had my fair share of injuries, (particularly the rolled ankles!) and I always found that physiotherapy was able to get me back to playing quickly. Throughout my study, I’ve enjoyed watching and assisting my brother rehabilitate after tearing his ACL (twice).
I first pursued a career in a health field because I was fascinated by how the body works to heal from injuries and conditions. I also really enjoy that this career allows me to stay active and interact with different people on a daily basis, I would go crazy sitting at a desk all day.
I found PhysioWest when a presenter from a course I attended suggested I should get in contact with them. I had mentioned to the presenter that what I was looking for in a job was to be able to work with a great team of peers that I would enjoy spending time with away from work too, and I definitely feel PhysioWest is that place.
My Life motto is: Be kind to EVERYONE
My focus areas and passion lies in:
- Return to fitness and health
- Return to sport
- Acute injury management
Outside of work, I’m a middle child in the family, with one older brother, and two younger sisters. I love playing social basketball and mixed netball.
My quirky must knows are:
- Love watching NBA, go Chicago Bulls!
- Adelaide Crows supporter
- I can fix a rubix cube as well as I can fix your pain!
- Bachelor of Physiotherapy (UniSA)
