What is Dry Needling and Who is Sue Falsone?
Dry needling, as a mix of skill and art, is performed by an expert medical professional who uses dry needles to stimulate the muscles of the athlete. Sue Falsone, the creator and CEO of SFDN, launched a practical dry needling concept named Structure and Function Dry Needling, which shares a name with her business! In the course of the decade in the industry, Falsone acquired a great amount of expertise which she used to invent her dry needling system. As a real leader in her field of expertise, she served as Head Athletic Coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers, which made her the very first female to assume the position of Head Athletic Coach in the 4 most popular sports in the United States. The the US Men’s National Soccer team also perceived her accomplishments and made her Head Athletic Trainer.
The aim of the course is the following:
