At SFDN, founder and Chief Executive Officer Sue Falsone founded a dry needling concept that goes by SFDN. This system is characterized by a blend of skills Sue Falsone combined and perfected over many years in the industry. As a true pioneer in her area of expertise, she worked as Head Athletic Coach for the LA Dodgers organization, which made her the very first female to assume the role of Head Athletic Trainer in the 4 most important sports in the United States. The the US Men’s National Soccer team also recognized her competence and made her Head Athletic Trainer.
The purpose of the course is:
- to understand the surface anatomy of the patient regarding his well-being when handling dry needles;
- to allow the students to use dry needling techniques when treating various orthopedic and sports-related pathologies;
- to employ intramuscular stimulation when treating various and sports-related pathologies; and become proficient when using cupping techniques.
- to familiarize with the clinician the contraindications and safety measures while using the aforementioned technique;
