During Ben’s AFL career, he received podiatric treatment for various foot and ankle issues. Fortunately, the advice, exercises and orthotics the podiatrist provided Ben enabled him to recover quickly and return to the game. Ben’s positive experiences led him to pursue a career in podiatry following his retirement from AFL in 2008.
Ben has continued his involvement in AFL by consulting for the North Melbourne Football Club and performing as assistant coach for the Old Xavs. Ben is a keen runner, having completed the New York and Paris marathon and the Great Ocean Road half marathon.
Ben is available at Glenferrie Sports and Spinal in Hawthorn on a Monday and Thursday.
