Benjamin graduated from Sacred Heart University’s Doctor of Physical Therapy program in 2013, with a great passion for Orthopaedics. He was then accepted into an Orthopaedic Residency Program, a year long process of sharpening his skills as a clinician to efficiently evaluate, diagnose and treat a wide variety orthopaedic conditions. This program propelled him forward into becoming a Board Certified Orthopaedic Clinical Specialist in Physical Therapy. He has enjoyed helping young adult athletes and dancers return to pain free performance following injury and/or surgery, as well as working with adults recovering from recent total joint replacements at the knee, hip, shoulder and ankle. One of his favorite aspects about physical therapy is the amount of time and attention he is able to give to his clients. He listens to his client’s concerns and works with them to develop a successful plan for return to function. He loves to be challenged by complex cases, however, he also understands the importance of careful collaboration and teamwork with both clients and their doctors to achieve the best result possible.
Ben is excited to continue growing his skillset in the orthopaedic realm. He is a Level 2 Expert Practitioner of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization, which is helpful in relieving muscular issues. A majority of his continuing education has focused on advanced manual assessment and treatment of various orthopaedic conditions across the human body. As an APTA Credentialed Clinical Instructor, he also harbors a passion for teaching students and helping them grow in their clinical reasoning skills.
In his free time, Ben loves to spend time with his wife by cooking, watching movies, and singing/playing music together. They love to travel together and explore new destinations, both domestically and internationally. He and his wife are also actively involved in their local church. It gives Ben great joy to care for people and help others by using his skills and expertise in physical therapy.
