Ben is the Director of our Kalispell office and was born in Mattoon, Illinois. He graduated from the University of Illinois with a Bachelor’s of Science in Kinesiology. He then went on to become a Doctor of Physical Therapy in 2007 from Washington University in St. Louis.
Ben is a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist. To become a Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist, therapists must complete a minimum of 2,000 hours of direct patient care in the specialty area of orthopedics. Each specialist must also pass a rigorous examination that tests the application of advanced knowledge and clinical skills through a written board exam on orthopedic physical therapy. He also is a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist through the National Strength & Conditioning Association, and holds an ASTYM certification which allows him to perform tool-assisted scar tissue mobilization.
While he enjoys treating all ages and conditions, Ben has a particular interest in:
- Spine pain
- Sports medicine
- Shoulder rehabilitation
- ASTYM: Tool assisted myofascial release
- Orthotic intervention
When not treating patients, you will find Ben outside: hunting, hiking, fishing, and more.
