Home > About Us > Physiotherapists

Moving from Shepparton in January Ben has enjoyed the Mount Isa dry season over the freezing Victorian winter mornings. Ben studied in Bendigo where he gained his masters in Physiotherapy Practice over 4 years. 2017 has been a busy year for Ben completing his Clinical Pilates, Mulligans upper and lower limb and dry needling courses. Considering the heavy manual work that occurs in Mount Isa all our Physiotherapist complete the Lynn Watson shoulder course to help us have a high comprehensive level of conservative treatment if surgery can be avoided.

Ben’s motivation for Physiotherapy comes from some of his own experiences as he experienced a Brodie’s abscess in his knee aged 10 which is a rare form of osteomyelitis that occurred without a cause and resulted in surgery. Ben had ongoing patellofemoral pain following this which required Physiotherapy and rehabilitation.  Learning about movement disorders from a young age he developed a keen eye for biomechanical movements as he played state golf and had a handicap of 5 aged 16. With long hours of coaching and video analysis Ben can be seen at Mount Isa’s golf course hitting some monster drives.

He further developed his biomechanical skills by completing his training and assessors course and in partnership with David Rose Mount Isa’s owner they have continued to deliver high level manual task risk training and OHSA courses here in Mount Isa for over 10 years.

As a Physiotherapist Ben’s interests is hand therapy and making all sorts of interesting splits and doing mirror therapy. He also enjoys working out the reasons for chronic pain and educating about these conditions. With a well-rounded and continually developing skill set come and pay him a visit and let him entertain you with some of the interesting stories of his long dreadlocks.
