Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
[shaker_image]Combining the art and science of dry needling, a approved physiotherapist works with acupuncture needles to penetrate the epidermis and stimulate the muscles of the professional athlete. At Structure & Function Dry Needling, founder and CEO Sue Falsone started a dry needling approach called Structure & Function: Dry Needling. The approach is characterized by a mix of techniques Sue developed and improved over the course of a couple of decades in the industry. As a real leader in her field, Sue served as Head Athletic Trainer for the Los Angeles Dodgers organization, making her the very first female to assume the position of Head Athletic Trainer in the 4 major sports in America. The the United States Men’s National Soccer team also recognized her competence and gave her the job of Head Athletic Trainer.
The purpose of the course is:
- to better understand general and respective anatomies of the subject in order to make sure they are safe while practicing the technique of dry needling on them;
- to teach proper use of dry needling techniques in addressing common sports-related ailments;
- to employ intramuscular stimulation when curing different and sports-related pathologies; and become proficient in the use of cupping techniques.
- to show the clinician the contraindications and precautions when using said technique;
- to understand secure needle usage techniques, and prevent risk of exposure to blood borne diseases;
When the course is finished, the participants will be able to use their newfound abilities to treat various conditions in ortho and sports medicine.
[shaker_image]The classes come at a price of one thousand two hundred ninety five dollars, and for every ten people someone registers, they (their sports club or department) get free tuition for 1 person. It is recommended that participants take a few specific items with them: a TENS unit, alligator clamps, and an anatomy book. Dry needles will be made available to everyone by the course staff. In addition to being in the process of approving CEUs (Continuing Education Units) for their courses, SFDN is licensed by the Board of Certification, Inc. to offer continuing education services to certified Athletic Trainers.
