Ben McChesney – Osteopath

Ben McChesney is Australian trained osteopath (RMIT 2002), and founder of Balance Osteopathy. His background in progressive, movement oriented, multidisciplinary clinics fostered a desire to custom a similar space in Melbourne.

Ben had 6 years in London, helping clients and athletes at Pure Sports Medicine, Harrods occupational health department and other clinics. He completed an MSc in sport and exercise rehabilitation at St Mary’s University, including an internship at Fulham Football Club.

A diploma of Applied Functional Science followed in 2010, learning functional assessment and rehabilitation from the Gray Institute in USA. Ben lectured in UK Osteopathic institutions integrating functional biomechanics and rehabilitation with Osteopathy and now Victoria University.

Balance Osteopathy‘s clinic enables seamless transition between movement assessment to table based osteopathic treatment. Assessment, treatment and rehabilitation’s tailored to your individual needs. Ben enjoys helping people, of any age or ability, out of discomfort, moving better, and back to what they enjoy.
