About Us

Revitalize Physical Therapy is a women’s health clinic that specializes in treating common issues such as incontinence, pelvic pain, prolapse and back or hip pain throughout the different stages of a woman's life.

Our doctors are truly experts in women's health, it's all they do! Not only do they personalize their treatment to each client's specific needs, but the Revitalize team is with each client throughout their rehab journey and transition to wellness.

We truly believe women should be able to run without leaking, play with their kids without pain, and enjoy intimacy with their partner.

The Revitalize Remedy

After years of working with hundreds of women, we have developed our unique, proven program, “The Revitalize Remedy”, which we have found provides faster results with long lasting success. This fully customized treatment plan includes 3 phases of rehab and also integrates treatment for the different nutrition, lifestyle and physical factors that cause pelvic floor issues.

We realize that women’s healthcare is not a “one-size-fits-all” approach so at the end of your initial assessment, we will discuss if “The Revitalize Remedy” is the best way to help you resolve your issues or if a more traditional physical therapy approach would be better.

Together, we will work through a program designed just for you in order to help you achieve a healthy, active life without pelvic floor issues!

We're a different kind of physical therapy clinic. Our staff cares about our clients and genuinely wants them to get better, faster.

Dr. Mary Garces

Physical Therapist, Pelvic Floor Specialist

Dr. Mary Garces, PT, DPT earned her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Des Moines University in Des Moines, IA after obtaining her undergraduate degree at Marquette University, where she also played Division I volleyball. She became interested in learning more about the pelvic floor specialty after assisting in a research project during graduate school that studied different pelvic floor populations. Following graduation, Dr. Mary has worked in acute and outpatient physical therapy settings. This is where Dr. Mary felt inspired to dive even deeper into pelvic health. She saw so many of her own patients suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction with little guidance from other health care providers on how to restore better function and quality of life.

Seeing her patients become empowered with the knowledge about their body and providing patients the tools to address these impairments is the most rewarding part of her job. Dr. Mary believes it is important to individualize each patient’s plan of care to ensure the patient can achieve the best results possible. In addition to manual therapy and exercise, Dr. Mary uses dry needling and yoga to help her patients reach their goals.

When Dr. Mary is not at work, she enjoys spending time with her husband, dog, and nieces and nephews. She loves baking, reading, camping, and knitting! She likes to stay active by going hiking, running, practicing yoga, and playing volleyball.

Patient Care Coordinator

I have been a caregiver since I was 18, working in elderly communities and in-home care. I really enjoy working with people and love when I can see that I have made a positive impact in their lives! I previously was working as an Administrative Assistant, however I thought that working as a Patient Care Coordinator better fit my values and interests of helping people.  

In my free time, my absolute favorite thing to do is spend time with my son Colton. I also enjoy going to concerts, hanging out with friends (especially around a big bonfire), checking out local restaurants/breweries, cheering on the Brewers, and baking.
