Benjamin Kuznia, PT, DPT, OCS, CMP,CSMT, Cert. MDT, Cert. Graston, Rehab Director
Ben grew up in the small town of Argyle in rural northwestern Minnesota. Ben was raised on a family farm by his father, a farmer, and his mother, a teacher, who instilled the importance of education and a great work ethic. He still has a strong thirst for knowledge in all subjects, especially towards solving back and neck problems, and uses his example of work ethic to motivate his patients to reach their highest potential.
Ben has known all his life that he wanted to be a physical therapist. When he was in 3rd grade he had a minor knee injury that caused him to be sidelined in his favorite sport, football. After being treated by an excellent local Physical Therapist, he was able to return to the sport he loved. Ben then knew that he wanted to become a Physical Therapist so that he too could return people to the activities they enjoy.
Ben attended the University of North Dakota (UND) where he received his bachelor’s degree in Pre-Physical Therapy with a Minor in Psychology. He then continued on to The UND’s School of Medicine and Health Science where he received his Doctor of Physical Therapy Degree. Ben’s thirst for knowledge did not stop with his graduation. He has attended numerous continuing education courses and classes and is now certified in McKenzie Diagnosis and Therapy and is a Certified Orthopedic Specialist. Less than 2% of all therapists in the country have these certifications. Ben is excited to help his patients recover from their injuries and return to their daily lives without pain or limitations.
Ben started his RehabAuthority career in Boise, Idaho and spent 4 years as Rehab Director of the Eagle Road clinic. He was given a great opportunity to work for the summer closer to family in Grand Forks, North Dakota and has now returned to the Treasure Valley to work once again at the Eagle Road clinic. He enjoys all things competitive or outdoors including sports, hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, snowboarding, and CrossFit.
Tyler Zacher, PT, DPT, CMP, Cert. MDT
Tyler grew up in Beulah, a small town in west-central North Dakota. He graduated from Beulah High School in 2007 where he was a 3-sport athlete competing in football, basketball, and track & field. His inspiration for becoming a physical therapist came through the process of re-habbing personal injuries to get back to playing the games he loved. Physical Therapy also provided a unique blend of skills that Tyler enjoys – including teaching and problem solving – traits he undoubtedly picked up from his mom (a teacher) and his dad (an engineer).
Following high school, Tyler attended the University of Mary in Bismarck, ND where he studied and competed on the track & field team as a long jumper and triple jumper. Tyler received his Bachelor’s Degree in Exercise Science in 2011 and went on to graduate as a Doctor of Physical Therapy in 2014 from the University of Mary. He learned of RehabAuthority during his 4th and final clinical rotation in PT school. While on this clinical he enjoyed the fun, energetic, and teamwork-centered atmosphere that he was surrounded by at RehabAuthority. It wasn’t long before he knew RehabAuthority would be a great fit for him. One week after graduation, he was hired and now works in the Eagle Road Clinic in Boise, ID.
Tyler loves spending time with family and friends, as well as outdoor activities like hiking, hunting, fishing, boating and snowboarding. He also has a competitive side and enjoys working out as well as playing anything from basketball to board games.
