Dr. Ben is one of the very few Floridian physical therapists who have practiced for over 15 years, have a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree and also has his Board Specialty Certification in Orthopedics. Less than 1% of all Florida PTs have these advanced metrics. Dr. Ben has taken countless courses in orthopedics, manual therapy, and sports rehab, and brings a variety of techniques to his patients.
Dr. Ben does not believe in a “no-pain no-gain” philosophy, but instead believes in promoting healing through proper engagement of affected areas and teaching the nervous system how to re-incorporate proper use of an injured area without triggering pain responses. He prefers to work hands-on, one to one with patients. He does not like to use big exercise machines, but rather favors functional body movements to rehabilitate injuries.
When Dr. Ben is not at the clinic, he is enjoying time with his 2 children and wife in his neighborhood in Western Boynton Beach. Being from New England, Ben stays on top of the Boston sports teams, and can be caught wearing his Red Sox tie from time to time.
