Josh Darby

Josh grew up playing many sports including baseball, football, and basketball. In middle school and high school his focus was on basketball. And although he knew he wouldn’t play in college, he knew he still wanted to be around sports. “I thought athletic training was cool, and my goal in life was to tape Michael Jordan’s ankle.” He may not have been able to tape Mike’s ankle, but he did have the opportunity to intern with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during their training camps two years in a row.

Working as a tech in an outpatient clinic inspired him to attend PT school at Wichita State, and he graduated in 2001. He has enjoyed working with athletes of all ages, from middle schoolers to his oldest patient at 90 years old.

In 2006, he was introduced to the Gray Institute by a co-worker, which changed the way he thought about movement and his approach to treating patients forever. In 2019 he graduated from the GIFT fellowship program.

Josh says, “What we do as movement professionals is so much fun!” And, “Helping people get out of pain and back to the activities they love is so rewarding.”

Josh enjoys spending time with his family—his wife Megan and daughter Kayla. He enjoys working out, running, and some occasional hoops. He has participated in many running events in and around Kansas City, as well as completing the Louisville marathon in 2017.
