Sarah Bellon DPT

Sarah Bellon, DPT

Sarah (she/they) earned her Doctor of Physical Therapy at Duke University and her bachelor’s in chemistry at Rutgers University.  Her clinical education was focused on pelvic rehab, breast cancer and lymphedema at the Duke Cancer Center/Duke Health in Durham, North Carolina. As a student, she completed the Herman and Wallace level 1 and 2a courses. In her first year of clinical practice, she completed training in the Norton School to become a Certified Lymphedema Therapist.

In the clinic, Sarah has treated people with a wide range of pelvic floor conditions. She has experience with:

  • urinary and bowel incontinence
  • postpartum rehabilitation
  • dyspareunia
  • vaginismus
  • pelvic organ prolapse
  • post-prostatectomy rehab
  • post-mastectomy complications and lymphedema
  • axillary web syndrome
  • breast edema
  • breast reconstruction/augmentation
  • and many other conditions related to pelvic health

Sarah believes in treating the whole body.  Our social, emotional, physical, and psychological experiences are all important factors in recovery and growth. Everyone deserves to be seen as a whole person to heal. Sarah has a passion for working with people with gender identity issues, and she understands first-hand how difficult it can be for them to navigate the healthcare system. Her previous role at Duke Gender Health gave her additional insight into the challenges of navigating a health system and the barriers that must be overcome.

Sarah is originally from northern New Jersey. Physical Therapy is her second career, after working nearly 9 years in drug discovery and chemical development.  Sarah’s move from the lab to the clinic was driven by a desire to work with people and help improve their lives.

Outside of  the clinic, Sarah enjoys hiking, beaches, photography, astronomy, science and the natural world.  Recently Sarah has been exploring pottery and sketching.

Testimonial by T.H.

I started seeing Heather in October 2014. For more than two years, I had been suffering from painful urinary tract infection type symptoms after my bartholins gland surgery which included constant burning and urinary frequency sensation that led to more and more painful intercourse. I had made multiple visits to internist, obgyn and urologist's offices, went through a range of treatment with UTI and bladder frequency medication that included antibiotics, vesicare, estrogen cream, but nothing worked.

Testimonial by M.M.

A personal journey and testimonial from one of my patients:

My husband and I were married for 5 years before we were able to have intercourse due to my vaginismus. There was nothing traumatic in my past but for some reason, even though I wanted sex, I mentally avoided "that area" of my body and didn't even admit to myself that there was a problem for a long time, even though I was never able to put tampons in. Once I finally opened my eyes up to the fact that I had a problem, I had a surgery that was supposed to fix the issue.

Testimonial by S.B.

As someone who suffered the debilitating physical and emotional effects of vaginismus (as well as a complicated history of back injuries) for more than 15 years, I thought a "normal" life was just a fantasy. Then I found Heather.

Testimonial by Fritzette H.

I went to Heather after the birth of my third child. It was lucky, really, that I was referred to her, because my doctor had referred me to a surgeon for a possible hysterectomy or pelvic wall rebuild. Thankfully, I went to Heather before undergoing either surgery, she was able to fix the problem. She has studied extensively in women's health--even written a book about it--and was able to diagnose my problem, suggest a course of treatment (6 weeks), and then follow through with said treatment. By the end, as she said, I was as good as gold. Boy, was it worth it! Though uncomfortable to talk about, much less write about, it is worth getting the word out there. If you have painful intercourse, especially after birth or other trauma, the treatment may be as simple as Physical Therapy (with Heather, of course). I highly recommend her.

Testimonial by Mary L.

I started seeing Heather to treat my Interstitial Cystitis in November 2016. At this time, I was extremely miserable, in constant pain, and felt as though no one was listening or understood what was going on with my body. I have just finished my last appointment and I can honestly say that my life has completely changed for the better because of Heather and her team of PTs! I live almost completely pain free, and when I do have flare ups, I am able to treat them at home on my own. I am so grateful that this office was recommended to me a honestly cannot recommend them enough!

Testimonial by M.M.

My husband and I were married for 5 years and unable to have intercourse, but I never knew why. After numerous awful experiences at doctor’s offices (where many doctors told me I “just needed to relax”), a surgery that didn’t fix the problem, and a year of owning dilators that didn’t get me anywhere, someone finally referred me to Heather for Physical Therapy. I finally had answers and information from someone who knew exactly what I was dealing with!
