Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
Combining the art and science of dry needling, a approved medical professional works with dry needles to penetrate the epidermis and stimulate the athlete’s muscles. At Structure & Function Dry Needling, creator and Chief Executive Officer Sue Falsone developed a practical dry needling approach named Structure & Function: Dry Needling. In the course of the decade in the field, Sue Falsone acquired an incredible amount of expertise which she used to perfect her dry needling concept. As a true pioneer in her area of expertise, she was Head Athletic Trainer for the LA Dodgers, which made her the first female to assume the role of Head Athletic Trainer in the 4 most important sports in the United States. The the United States Men’s National Soccer team also saw her accomplishments and gave her the job of Head Athletic Trainer.
