Dr. Ben Butwin grew up in Carmel, Indiana and graduated from Carmel High School in 2001. There, he captained the school’s football and lacrosse teams. He graduated from the University of Notre Dame in 2005 with a degree in Finance and moved to Chicago to work in the investment world, but a stronger calling to serve others led him to change careers.
Having experienced severe neck and back pain from years of contact sports, Dr. Butwin sought relief via massage therapy, physical therapy, and medication. Nothing was fixing the problem, so he visited a chiropractor as a “last resort.” The relief he found after being treated just a few times was astonishing. He soon realized that his life’s purpose was to help people, especially young athletes, move better, recover faster, and prevent future injury.
Dr. Butwin attended the National University of Health Sciences and graduated as valedictorian of his class in August of 2011. He spent over two years practicing at Zimmer Chiropractic & Nutrition in Fishers before opening Butwin Chiropractic in 2013. He is experienced in treating various musculoskeletal conditions such as neck and low back pain, headaches, disc herniations, mid-back pain, plantar fasciitis, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Dr. Ben’s athletic upbringing has led to a strong interest in sports injuries, fitness, and nutrition, and a passion for helping other athletes perform at their highest level. Dr. Butwin is certified in Active Release Technique and regularly uses this method to treat soft tissue, muscle, and ligamentous injuries. He is a volunteer medic and team chiropractor for the Circle City Derby Girls flat-track roller derby league and a Level 1 CrossFit Trainer who regularly teaches classes as a at his local gym.
Dr. Butwin enjoys sharing his knowledge with others and frequently speaks to groups of varying interest. His other passions include cheering on the Colts and the Fighting Irish, homebrewing, and most importantly, his faith and his family. Dr. Butwin and his better half, Michele, are proud parents of their sons Jacob (4), Ryan (2), and their dog Addy.
