She teaches classes throughout America to empower health care professionals. SFDN offers dry needling classes, 25 hrs in length, in Austin and other big cities across the United States.

Dry Needling and Sue Falsone
Dry needling, as a mix of art and science, is done by an expert physical therapist who works with acupuncture needles to stimulate the professional athlete’s muscles. At SFDN, creator and Chief Executive Officer Sue Falsone founded a hands-on dry needling approach called SFDN. This concept is characterized by a mix of skills Sue Falsone developed and enhanced over the course of many years in the business. As a true pioneer in her area, she was Head Athletic Coach for the LA Dodgers, which made her the very first female to assume the position of Head Athletic Coach in the four major sports in the United States. The the United States Men’s National Soccer team also saw her skills and gave her the job of Head Athletic Trainer.
The aim of the course is the following:
- to learn secure dry needle usage techniques, and eliminate potential blood borne diseases;
- to understand the anatomy of the patient in regards to his safety when working with acupuncture needles;
- to apply intramuscular stimulation in curing common orthopedic and sports-related problems; as well as master different cupping techniques.
- to point out to the health professional the contraindications and safeguards when using said technique;
- to be able to use dry needling techniques in treating common orthopedic and sports-related ailments;
After the course is over, the students will be able to put together their newfound skills in order to cure various pathologies and ailments in sports and orthopedic medicine.
