Benjamin Muir - BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy, MHCPC MCSP.
Ben is passionate about people and health! This led him to the profession and he graduated with a BSc (hons) physiotherapy degree from Leeds Metropolitan University in 2008. Ben now has over 10 years of private practice and sports physiotherapy experience. He prides himself on his clinical knowledge of sports injuries, tendon injuries, joint injuries and dysfunctions, orthopaedic surgical rehabilitation and the treatment of back and neck pain.
Ben directed a clinic in the heart of the buiness district in Singapore for over 7 years, and has worked as a medical educator for World Rugby. He worked as a pitch side physiotherapist with professional rugby clubs and in elite rugby tournaments, such as the HSBC 7s, the World Club 10s, Singapore Cricket Club 7s as well as being the lead physiotherapist for the Singapore Wanderers Rugby Club. He subsequently became part of the medical team for the Sunwolves Rugby Club when playing their Singapore Super Rugby fixtures. Ben has also worked with a professional tennis player and a professional mixed martial artist, helping them to return to elite levels of sport following injury. All of this experience has enhanced Ben’s assessment and diagnostic skills in high-pressure situations, making his assessments clear and efficient.
Ben also has a background in clinical Pilates (STOTT Pilates, Mat and multiple Pilates based rehab qualifications), which he uses in his rehab programs. He has also trained in medical acupuncture and dry needling in New Zealand, Australia and Singapore. He uses this, as well as hands-on techniques in conjunction with other modalities of treatment, to help relieve stress and pain. Ben has continued his education through regular reading of the latest research as well as regular attendance at courses with the leaders in the field.
In clinic, Ben makes sure he really gets to know each of his patients and understands their needs and goals; from pain relief, to regaining function in every day life and getting back into sport. He has vast experience treating persistent back and neck pain. Guided by current research, he educates his patients on the influencing factors of their pain, cutting through the myths, bad advice and medical jargon that we so often hear. Ben aims to empower his patients to manage their condition actively-helping them to tap into their full potential and feel confident in every day function as soon as possible. Above all, Ben works with each patient to help to fulfil the individual’s needs and achieve their goals.
