Benjamin Hodgetts


Ben is an accredited Podiatrist who joins us from the Eastern States.

Having previously worked as a social worker for troubled youths and clients from diverse backgrounds Ben has a greater capacity and ability to understand his patients and their needs.

Ben’s passion for sports medicine comes from a background in competitive sports, being involved as a sprint and strength and conditioning coach and working with sports persons and teams of all ages.

Ben has a strong commitment and is driven to find solutions while educating and involving the patient in their health care.

Ben focuses heavily on exercise techniques, running style and barefoot rehabilitation to assist people to gain greater emphasise on strength, stability and function from the ground up. Ben has a deep understanding of how the body performs from a functional perspective.

As work-life balance is vital, Ben enjoys getting outdoors and riding his motorbike, personal development, spending time with his partner and their two dogs, surfing, snowboarding, playing music and volunteers in the ‘big brother’ program at the YMCA just to name a few…

Ben takes a holistic approach to his work and specialises in lower limb biomechanics, postural alignment, nail surgery, sports injuries of the lower limb and children’s podiatry.
