He has volunteered as a member of the medical team for various national and international sporting events, including the Pan American Games.
As a physiotherapist, Ben believes in the importance of high quality one-on-one physiotherapy, emphasizing hands-on intervention, ongoing education, and active client involvement to best help patients reach their full potential. He was recognized for his work by being nominated as a finalist in the Faces of Ottawa Awards for Ottawa’s favourite Physiotherapist in 2019.
Ben has engaged in post-graduate training in a number of areas including manual therapy, dry needling, acupuncture, and concussion management. He has experience assessing and treating patients of all ages in the areas of orthopedics, sports medicine, motor vehicle accidents, and workplace injuries.
When he’s not at work, Ben enjoys traveling with his wife to different destinations around the world.
