Ben Robinson, DPT
Ben Robinson, DPT, attended the University of Utah for both his pre-physical therapy degree and his doctorate degree awarded in 2006. Before returning to Mt. Pleasant in 2008, he received additional instruction through Sole Support and kinesio taping. Focus is spent on the outpatient clinic in Mt. Pleasant as well as home health and at the Sanpete Valley Hospital. Ben volunteers at the North Sanpete High School in their athletic program and on the medical staff, at Snow College on their medical staff for athletics and works with elementary children who are developmentally delayed. Ben evaluates the child and sets up a plan that will work with the disability. "I believe that hands-on manual skills will improve what the patient needs. A heavy emphasis on exercise and movement when healing the body will produce significant progress. Special and specific testing is done to evaluate the problem to see what is wrong and then address this through therapeutic exercise. I try to tailor this to the patient's interests and activities."
Returning to the area where Ben and his wife, Kaylin, were raised is ideal for them and their four children. Family activities included anything that is outdoors, fishing, hunting, camping, tubing, etc. The family enjoys watching as well as participating in athletic events. Keeping fit, himself, Ben has a personal exercise program and likes to bike. "I want to build a relationship with the patient so when they walk out the door they feel better than when they walked in."
