Experience and History

Ben’s relocation to Dubai in 2019 expands his scope, allowing him to bring his expertise to a diverse clientele. His experience in treating both elite athletes and working professionals underscores his adaptability and versatility in addressing a wide range of conditions, from extensive sporting injuries to general aches and pains.

The philosophy of “finding the athlete in everyone” reflects Ben’s belief in the importance of physical activity for overall well-being. This approach suggests that regardless of one’s fitness level or background, there is an opportunity for improvement and optimisation of physical performance.

Ben’s utilisation of expert manual therapy skills, dry needling, shockwave therapy, and exercise rehabilitation showcases a comprehensive and multidimensional approach to physiotherapy. Manual therapy allows for hands-on assessment and treatment, while techniques like dry needling and shockwave therapy can provide targeted interventions for specific conditions.

The incorporation of exercise rehabilitation into Ben’s methodology aligns with contemporary physiotherapy practices that emphasise the importance of active engagement in the healing process. This approach not only addresses immediate concerns but also focuses on long-term wellness and prevention.
