Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
Combining the art and science of dry needling, a approved physical therapist uses acupuncture needles to prick the dermis and stimulate the muscles of the professional athlete. At SFDN, founder and Chief Executive Officer Sue Falsone launched a hands-on dry needling system named SFDN! Over the course of her years in the industry, Falsone garnered a great amount of experience which she used to invent her dry needling approach. As an original leader in her field, Sue served as Head Athletic Trainer for the Los Angeles Dodgers, which made her the first female to assume the role of Head Athletic Coach in the four most important sports in America. The American Men’s National Soccer team also recognized her skills and gave her the job of Head Athletic Trainer.
The course was designed for the medical professional:
- to master proper acupuncture needle handling techniques, and prevent risk of exposure to diseases transmitted by blood;
- to better understand the anatomies of the subject so as to make sure they are safe as the practitioner is using the technique of dry needling;
- to utilize intramuscular stimulation when treating various sports-related pathologies; and to become proficient in the use of vacuum therapy techniques.
- to make certain the clinician is acquainted with the contraindications and safeguards in terms of dry needling;
- to teach the clinicians to employ dry needling techniques when curing different orthopedic and sports-related pathologies;
