We love PREP! Mary Kate has been so helpful to our daughter. When Mary Kate opened in summer 2016, she was struggling with Sever’s disease (heel pain) from gymnastics, and we were making costly visits over to Children’s for physical therapy. We soon switched to PREP and since then have been there on an ongoing basis for a number of gymnastics related aches and pains. Their care has been exceptional, friendly, personalized, educational, and much lower cost than at Children’s! We hope that our daughter does not need PT in 2018, but if she does, there is only one place we would take her – PREP!

Mary Kate is the absolute best Physical Therapist around and the PREP is incredible! Being a former athlete and having experienced injuries throughout my athletic career, I was terribly nervous to train for and run the Chicago Marathon. Mary Kate helped me tremendously with my knee pain, providing so many great exercises, information, and education. She is so wonderful and thorough when she works with you, providing explanations on all of the muscles you work on to prevent pain and injury. I don’t think there would have been any way I could have gotten through that 26.2 without her.

On top of everything, you can tell how much she genuinely cares about her clients and helping them achieve their personal goals, whatever they may be. She is committed to your progress and is going to get you there. GO SEE MARY KATE at PREP. You won’t regret it :-).

Beautiful facility with an amazing functional training area! Had the pleasure of working directly with Mary the therapist, she had me feeling much better by the end of the first session. Overall great experience with very knowledgable staff. I will continue to refer as many of my patients here as possible!

My daughter is a competitive gymnast and has gone to PREP for personal assistance with injuries as well as a preventative group class. She has worked with Mary Catherine and we’ve found them both to be very kind and helpful. I like that they focus both on healing her injuries as well as helping her understand her body and how she can prevent injuries moving forward. They have always been accommodating with my daughter’s busy schedule, which is greatly appreciated.
