Having completed the Upper and Lower quadrant modules, amongst others, he gained Specialist Neuromusculoskeletal Physiotherapist accreditation.
Ben continued to work as a Specialist Physiotherapist within the NHS and was involved in the implementation of Paediatric, Hand and Shoulder clinics alongside highly regarded Orthopaedic Consultants.
He returned home to Ireland in 2014 to take up the position of Clinical Lead of a private practice/medical clinic in South Dublin. Recently Ben has taken up the role of external examiner on the Sports Rehabilitation Program at the Institute of Technology Carlow where he can combine his love for education and teaching.
Ben is a specialist in all areas of musculo-skeletal dysfunction and injury, however, his passion lies in sports physiotherapy and rehabilitation. He is currently head Physiotherapist for the Carlow Senior Gaelic football team and his home hurling club, James Stephens in Kilkenny.
He has previously worked with high profile athletes such as Mo Farah (Olympic Gold medallist), Ipswich Town Football Academy and with numerous Senior Intercounty GAA players.

To achieve the best results, he often employs specialist techniques such as traditional Chinese acupuncture, electro acupuncture, dry needling and spinal manipulation.
His physiotherapy principles are simple- he believes physiotherapy is a manual profession which should involve hands-on therapy and a holistic assessment to prevent future injury reoccurrence.
His physiotherapy ideology is “prevention is better than cure”.
