Jarod Henry


Jarod Henry is a physical therapist, who is excited to bring his nearly 12 years of experience in orthopedic physical therapy to the Vail Valley!

A graduate of Wichita State University’s physical therapy program, Jarod has spent his career building a multimodal approach to physical therapy including manual techniques and active techniques to address all implicated tissue. Jarod enjoys working with patients who perform at the elite level, as well as those who aren’t yet aware of elite they can be, treating injuries that include anything from the foot and ankle all the way up to the neck and head (dizziness/ concussions)!

Jarod was the lead physical therapist for the Wichita Thunder hockey team in Wichita, as well as the Wichita Force arena football team in 2015. Jarod helped manage a clinic in Wichita, KS and was also the Wichita market’s clinical coordinator. Jarod is a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist, as well as an Orthopedic Certified Specialist through the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties.

Jarod enjoys running, biking, skiing, mud-runs, as well as lifting weights and fully believes that his activities outside the clinic help prepare him and allow him to understand the various obstacles that athletes of every level encounter.
