Ben completed his Bachelor Degree of Applied Science and Masters of Physiotherapy at La Trobe University in 2018. Shortly after he joined the HomeCare Physiotherapy team in Melbourne. 

Throughout his studies Ben gained valuable experience working across many areas of Physiotherapy including community based musculoskeletal rehabilitation as well as gerontology, neurological and cardiorespiratory rehabilitation. Throughout his studies he worked alongside Physiotherapists at South Eastern Private Hospital as an Allied Health Assistant. Here he developed a keen interest working with elderly patients, helping them to regain independence through exercise and education, and achieve their goals of returning home. 

Ben prides himself on providing an evidence based and holistic approach when treating his patients. He recognises the importance of delivering Physiotherapy within a home environment in order to improve physical function, allowing his patients to remain independent and engaged within their communities. 

In his free time Ben enjoys keeping active playing football and golf. He also enjoys eating good food and spending time with his friends and family.
