Norwalk, CT - “Women's Health" is the next topic in the Waveny Care Center and Norwalk Hospital public lecture series to be presented at The Village at Waveny Care Center in New Canaan on Thursday, April 11, 2013 at 4 p.m.

The featured speaker is Adina Leifer PT, DPT, Pelvic Health Center at Norwalk Hospital, and she will focus on pelvic floor muscle dysfunction, a common women's health issue, but an issue that is not unique to women. Pelvic floor muscles are responsible for bowel and bladder control but when these muscles malfunction, they can cause pain and dysfunction of the bladder and bowel. "People can benefit from physical therapy as part of a multi-disciplinary medical approach of treatment to minimize or resolve these debilitating symptoms completely," according to Adina.

Adina received her B.A. degree from Yeshiva University and completed her B.S. degree in Health Sciences and earned a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Touro College. She received her Pelvic Floor Therapy education through the Herman and Wallace Pelvic Rehabilitation Institute. Adina has worked with patients from orthopedic, neurologic and pediatric populations. She has lectured across New York City concerning current practices in both pediatric, adult orthopedic and pelvic floor physical therapy. Adina has extensive training in orthopedics, manual therapy, women’s health and pelvic floor dysfunction. She is a proud member of the section of Women’s Health of the American Physical Therapy Association and the International Pelvic Pain Society.

Norwalk Hospital has recently opened a Pelvic Health Center specializing in the treatment of pelvic disorders such as urinary incontinence, endometriosis, chronic pelvic pain, pelvic organ prolapse, pre-and post-partum muscular dysfunction, sexual dysfunction, fibroids, fecal incontinence and bowel control problems.
