“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.”
Howard Head Sports Medicine has been serving Eagle County and beyond since 1990 when Howard Head and his wife, Martha Head, made a donation to open Howard Head Physical Therapy Clinic at Vail Valley Medical Center. Soon thereafter, the clinic began developing extensive therapy protocols for rehabilitation.
“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.”
The resort is also 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 fitness center and a 25-meter saline-based outdoor poor.
