Our Team

Dr. Ben Bloomer PT, DPT

Ben is a Doctor of Physical Therapy and co-owner of Thrive, who enjoys treating a wide variety of ages and diagnoses of patients, including back/neck pain, balance deficits, arthritis/joint pain, and concussions.

His love for sports and injury prevention drove him to pursue a career in physical therapy.

He has extensive experience working in the outpatient orthopedic setting, and has spent the last two years operating as a center manager. Ben truly enjoys working one-on-one with patients while building a solid trust and rapport with a friendly smile.

He understands that some people need to slowly ease their way into an exercise routine, while others need to be motivated and pushed hard during their rehabilitation.

Ben strives to build a personalized and patient-centered program focused on each individual's unique goals.
