[shaker_image]Sue Falsone founded her own business, Structure & Function: Dry Needling, in order to introduce dry needling to health care professionals. She teaches courses all over the United States to improve the knowledge of medical professionals. SFDN offers dry needling classes, twenty-five hours in length, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and other major cities throughout the US. Spread across 3 days, the class is comprised of a bunch of topics on the essential dry needling approaches in curing a number of acute and chronic conditions in professional athletes.
Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
Using the technique of dry needling, an experienced licensed physiotherapist uses his skill with acupuncture needles to enter the skin and stimulate the muscles of the athlete. Sue Falsone, the founder and CEO of SFDN, started a hands-on dry needling approach called Structure and Function Dry Needling, the namesake of her business. Over the course of her years in the business, Falsone acquired a great amount of expertise which she used to develop her dry needling concept. As a true leader in her area, Sue served as Head Athletic Trainer for the LA Dodgers organization, which made her the very first female to assume the position of Head Athletic Trainer in the four most important sports in the United States. The the United States Men’s National Soccer team also saw her competence and made her Head Athletic Trainer.
The course was designed for the medical professional:
- to better understand the external anatomy of the subject in terms of his well-being while handling dry needles;
- to enable the students to use dry needling techniques when curing different ortho and sports-related injuries;
- to successfully use intramuscular stimulation when treating various orthopedic and sports-related conditions; as well as become proficient when using vacuum therapy techniques.
- to point out to the health professional the contraindications and safeguards when using said technique;
- to be able to work with dry needles in a proper manner, and adhere to official health guidelines and regulations;
After the course is over, the participants will be confident enough to use their newfound knowledge to treat various conditions and ailments within the fields of sports and orthopedic medicine.
