Dr. Benjamin Maurer, DPT has always had a fascination with the human body and the amazing things that it is capable of. His passion for physical therapy began during his undergraduate studies at Juniata College in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, when he began to look at the world of healthcare and was unsatisfied with that the “solutions” for most issues were pain medications and surgeries. Motivated to make a difference in the lives of others and to offer alternative options to address pain and injuries, Ben began his studies to become a Doctor of Physical Therapy at Neumann University in Aston, PA. Upon graduating, Ben moved to Florida in August of 2017 to take his current position as Clinic Director at BayLife Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation. Since 2017, Ben has continued to challenge himself to learn more about the human body and how physical therapy can be used to address a wide variety of issues that people may experience throughout their lives. Choosing to further separate himself from the “standard” practice models that are performed at most physical therapy clinics, Ben minimizes the amount of time being used for passive treatments like modalities and instead opts to use active treatments for his patients. Active treatments require the patient to be more involved during their physical therapy session and are designed to promote patient independence, provide education for better understanding of their body, and most importantly allow the patient to take an active role in their recovery. Ben approaches each patient with empathy and compassion, listening to their stories, so that he may provide them with individualized treatment plans that help them to achieve goals that are meaningful to them and to improve their quality of life. Ben enjoys working with patients throughout the course of their recovery and challenging them to achieve goals that are beyond their expectations.
