As the founder of NOLA Pelvic Health, her dedication goes beyond traditional physical therapy; she's on a mission to transform the conversation around women's pelvic wellness.

Credentials and Background

Dr. Reardon laid her educational foundations at Washington University in St. Louis, earning both her Bachelor of Science in 2004 and her Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2007. Her academic journey didn't stop with graduation. Her quest for specialized knowledge led her to become a Board-Certified Women's Health Clinical Specialist, a distinction that speaks to her depth of expertise in female pelvic medicine.

Further sharpening her focus, Dr. Reardon obtained a Board Certification in Pelvic Muscle Dysfunction Biofeedback. This specialized training allows her to offer treatments that are not only innovative but also deeply attuned to the subtle dynamics of pelvic health. Her excellence in the field has not gone unnoticed. 

In 2019, Dr. Reardon was honored with the Alumni Achievement Award from her alma mater, Washington University in St. Louis, recognizing her significant contributions to women's health. That same year, she was named one of New Orleans' Top 40 Under 40 Young Professionals, cementing her status as a leading voice in her community and a trailblazer in healthcare.

This robust educational and professional background forms the backbone of Dr. Reardon's practice, equipping her with the tools to provide care that is both compassionate and cutting-edge.

Professional Journey

Dr. Sara Reardon’s career in pelvic health began in Austin and Dallas, where she first developed her passion for this specialized field.

In 2018, she founded New Orleans' only pelvic floor health specialty clinic, NOLA Pelvic Health, initially operating out of a yoga studio one day a week. The community's response was overwhelmingly positive, and demand for her services grew so rapidly that within just four months, Dr. Reardon expanded into her own dedicated space. 

Her clinic now serves as a vital resource for women across the region, offering specialized care that addresses a wide range of pelvic floor issues often neglected in traditional healthcare settings. Her journey is marked by a desire not just to treat but also to educate and empower her patients, shifting the narrative from silence and stigma to openness and understanding.
