The Westin Riverfront Resort & Spa at Beaver Creek Mountain is pleased to announce that Howard Head Sports Medicine now has a physical therapy clinic at the award-winning resort.
The Westin Riverfront – named the #1 U.S. Ski Hotel for the past three winters by Condé Nast Traveler - is dedicated to promoting the fitness and well-being of its guests and employees. The resort is home to Spa Anjali and the Athletic Club at The Westin, which features a Yoga Studio, a Cycling Studio, a Pilates Studio with four Reformers, a state-of-the-art fitness center and a 25-meter saline-based outdoor poor.
Howard Head Sports Medicine – the official physical therapy provider for the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Olympic Team – offers innovative healing techniques performed by highly gifted physical therapists, helping patients rebuild and return to the activities that they love to do.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer our guests and the Vail Valley community easy access to the amazing therapists at Howard Head Sports Medicine,” said Jeffery Burrell, General Manager at The Westin Riverfront. “There is no reason to postpone a vacation because of an injury or surgery. In fact, limiting stress can lead to better healing. Imagine leaving your luxurious room and simply taking an elevator down to enjoy expert physical therapy followed by a soak in the pool or visit to our spa, all without ever needing transportation.”
Physical therapy services now available at Howard Head Sports Medicine at The Westin Riverfront include Active Release Technique, Aquatic Therapy, Hand Therapy, Manual Therapy, Oncology Therapy, Post-Operative Therapy, Return-to-Sports Therapy, Trigger Point Dry Needling, Women’s Health, Workers’ Compensation Injuries and more.
“Colorado is a direct access state, which makes it very easy for resort guests to see a physical therapist without a prescription from their doctor,” said Todd Ward, Clinic Director at Howard Head Sports Medicine at The Westin Riverfront. “Many people who come to the Vail Valley to enjoy our multitude of outdoor activities unfortunately may feel a little "tweak" or "twinge." Those staying at The Westin Riverfront are able to call down from their room and be seen by an expert in sports medicine at Howard Head.”
Howard Head Sports Medicine has been proudly serving Eagle County and beyond since 1990 when Howard Head, world-renowned for forever changing skiing and racquet sports, and his wife, Martha Head, made a generous donation to open Howard Head Physical Therapy Clinic at Vail Valley Medical Center. Soon thereafter, the clinic began developing extensive therapy protocols for rehabilitation, setting new standards for research and innovation in the physical therapy field worldwide.
