Ben started his professional career as a laboratory technician working in the department of pathology at the Royal Brisbane Hospital. Although he enjoyed his time there, he always wanted a more clinical vocation, which enabled him to liaise directly with patients, rather than being confined to a laboratory setting.
It was in 2003 that Ben graduated from QUT with a Bachelor of Health Science (Podiatry) and started his life as a full time Podiatrist. Ben continued to gain valuable experience in all facets of the profession. He prides himself on being friendly, thorough and efficient in order to provide the best possible service for client. Whether it is general foot care, diabetic screening or any lower limb aches and pains, all are welcome. Ben has been able to achieve great results for lower limb complaints using customised orthotics inserts in order to address biomechanical abnormalities. He prefers a “hands on” approach when treating lower limb complaints, through foot mobilisation and manipulation therapy, which he believes provides a complete treatment approach versus relying solely on orthotic therapy.
Being an active cyclist for the past 20 years (8 years competitively) Ben has developed a particular interest in cycling biomechanics and has great understanding from both rider and clinical points-of- view. Using specifically designed custom orthotics, Ben has successfully treated many riders for common cycling problems (foot pain/numbness, knee, hip and lower back complaints) enabling them to ride pain free and more efficiently. He is always up for a challenge and welcomes all new patients!
