He takes time to understand the history of the condition and set achievable goals specific to each person.

Ben is passionate about helping people lead an active life, whatever that means to them. He believes activity and exercise is important for health, but it is most important that it is enjoyable. Exercises and activity that is prescribed will always be based around things that people like to do.
