Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
[shaker_image]Dry needling, as a combination of skill and art, is done by a health professional who uses his knowledge of acupuncture needles to stimulate the muscles of the athlete. Sue Falsone, the creator and CEO of Structure and Function Dry Needling, started a real-world dry needling system named Structure and Function Dry Needling, the namesake of her organization! This concept is defined by a combination of skills Falsone combined and improved over a couple of years in the business. Sue Falsone worked as Head Athletic Trainer for the Los Angeles Dodgers, a period where she was the first woman to assume the role of Head Athletic Coach in all of the 4 most important sports in the US. Also, Sue Falsone spent some time working as the Head Athletic Trainer for the United States Men’s National Soccer team.
The course wants to achieve the following:
- to understand the surface anatomy of the patient in terms of his safety when using dry needles;
- to allow the students to use dry needling techniques when curing different ortho and sports-related conditions;
- to use intramuscular stimulation in aiding everyday orthopedic and sports-related conditions; as well as master different cupping techniques.
- to be certain the clinician knows of the contraindications and precautions in in regards to dry needling;
