Ben grew up in Central Oregon where he was active in sports and competed nationally in ski racing. He had his first exposure to physical therapy during his senior year of high school rehabbing a ski racing injury. That experience led him to pursue a degree in physical therapy. Ben graduated Magna Cum Laude from Oregon State University with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Sports Science. He earned a Masters of Science in Physical Therapy with Distinction from Pacific University and has been working in outpatient orthopedic physical therapy clinics since 1999. Ben is an orthopedic certified specialist and enjoys the challenge of helping people return to optimal function without pain.
Ben likes to get outdoors with his wife and their four children. He is active coaching youth sports, often coaching more than one of his children’s teams each sports season. He and his family spend many summer weekends camping in the great Northwest.
