Ben Macdonald MSc MCSP

Ben graduated from Kings College London in 2001 with a BSc Honours degree in Physiotherapy and subsequently completed a Masters degree in Sports Physiotherapy at the University of Bath in 2011. In 2012 he qualified as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. 


Ben initially worked in a London Teaching Hospital, before travelling to New Zealand to work at the Adidas Sports Injury Clinic in Wellington. On returning to the UK, Ben specialised in Sports Physiotherapy. He worked for 7 seasons in Premiership rugby at Worcester Warriors Rugby Club, initially as first team physiotherapist and then as Head of Sports Medicine. He then joined Team Sky ProCycling, and had the opportunity to work alongside World Champion and Olympic cyclists at events such as the Giro D'Italia, World Road Championships and the 'Classics' Paris-Roubaix and Tour of Flanders.


Ben then spent 5 seasons at British Athletics, working across the Olympic programme, where he was responsible for managing the athletes as well as implementing Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation strategies. These roles allowed him to concentrate on hamstring, groin and tendon injuries - clinical interests that he developed whilst studying for his Masters degree. He maintains a research interest in hamstring injuries within the biomechanics department at Bath University and is a tutor on their Sports Physiotherapy Masters degree.

Ben currently works as lead physiotherapist for British Cycling at the Manchester Velodrome, where he is responsible for managing the physiotherapy team and for athlete management across both the Olympic and Paralympic programmes in preparation for Tokyo 2020. He works part time for Teme Physio, offering   weekend appointments.
