About Dry Needling and Sue Falsone
Using the technique of dry needling, an expert approved physical therapist uses acupuncture needles to enter the dermis and stimulate the professional athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the creator and Chief Executive Officer of Structure and Function Dry Needling, developed a hands-on dry needling approach that is called SFDN, which shares a name with her company. The approach is regarded as a mix of techniques Sue combined and perfected over the course of a couple of years in the field. Sue Falsone worked as Head Athletic Trainer for the LA Dodgers, where she worked as the first female Head Athletic Coach in any of the four major sports in America. She also spent some time working as the Head Athletic Coach for the American Men’s National Soccer team.
The course wants to achieve the following:
- to enable the students to employ dry needling techniques when treating various ortho and sports-related injuries;
- to be able to use intramuscular stimulation in curing commonplace orthopedic problems; and also learn various cupping techniques.
- to understand the anatomy of the patient in terms of his safety when working with needles;
- to handle dry needles in a secure way, and abide by official health rules and guidelines;
- to point out to the health professional the contraindications and safety measures for using said technique;
After the course is over, the practitioners will manage to use their newfound knowledge to cure varying conditions and issues within the fields of sports and ortho medicine.
The courses cost one thousand two hundred ninety five dollars, and for every ten people someone registers, they (their facility or department) get free tuition for 1 person. It is recommended that course participants bring a few specific items with them to class: a TENS unit (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation), alligator clips, and a book teaching human anatomy. The staff will supply the needles for all students to use in class. In addition to approving Continued Education Units (CEUs) for their courses, SFDN is approved by the Board of Certification, Inc. to offer continuing education to certified Athletic Trainers.
