Biography

Digby joined the CFVH provider team in 2016 with twenty years of experience. He has focused the majority of his career on orthopedics, specifically spine and lower extremity, as well as chronic pain. He was one of two therapists to develop and implement the chronic pain program at Community Medical Center in Missoula.

He has completed extensive coursework in evaluating and treating complex problems and he also studied with the URSA Foundation in Edmonds, WA that included myofascial release, craniosacral therapy as well as other Osteopathic-based mobilization techniques.

"My love for physical therapy began with an interest in the body, its anatomy and a history of playing sports in high school," Digby explained. "I used PT and athletic training as an athlete, but also watched my father undertake PT after a stroke. I would have to say that my father’s rehabilitation was the deciding factor for me becoming a physical therapist."

When asked why he chose CFVH, Digby said, "From the first time I came to the Clark Fork Valley, I knew that there was something special about this place. It is absolutely beautiful and the local people are great, very friendly and genuine." His wife, Susan, and him are both outdoor enthusiasts and the area has plenty of that to offer. "It just seemed to fit what my wife and I have been looking for over the past few years, small town, slower pace of life and ample outdoor recreation at our fingertips."

Digby enjoys four seasons of outdoor recreation and is an avid runner, cyclist and fly fisherman. He enjoys traveling, both domestic and abroad, and has toured most of the US as well as Europe and Central America.
