An experienced NOI Instructor in the UK, Ben has taught EP, MONIS and GMI courses in the UK & Europe since 2008. His background as a physiotherapist involves primary, secondary and tertiary care settings. The majority of Ben’s experience is with people who have complex, persistent pain presentations. Currently Ben works in primary care for Virgincare (Bath and Northeast Somerset, UK) as professional lead for physiotherapy and clinical specialist physiotherapist in pain management.
Ben’s PhD at the University of the West of England was in painful diabetic neuropathy, exploring whether this group of people could benefit from the pain management approaches which are relatively common in the MSK pain world, but not in the diabetic world.
You can find Ben on twitter (@ben_davies42), although he tends to use his free time riding two wheels (road + gravel = groadie?) or getting back out into the mountains.
