Who is Sue Falsone and What is Dry Needling?
Combining the art and science of dry needling, an expert approved physical therapist works with acupuncture needles to prick the skin and stimulate the professional athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the founder and CEO of SFDN, developed a practical dry needling approach called Structure and Function Dry Needling, which shares a name with her business. In the course of the decade in the field, Sue Falsone garnered a great amount of experience which she then used to invent her dry needling approach. Sue Falsone worked as Head Athletic Coach for the LA Dodgers, where she worked as the first woman to assume the role of Head Athletic Trainer in any of the 4 most popular sports in the United States. She also worked as the Head Athletic Trainer for the United States Men’s National Soccer team.
The course wants to allow the medical professional:
- to work with dry needles in a proper manner, and also abide by health guidelines and regulations;
- to better understand the external anatomy of the subject in regards to his well-being when working with dry needles;
- to use intramuscular stimulation when curing various orthopedic and sports-related pathologies; and to excel when using cupping techniques.
- to make sure the clinician understands the contraindications and safeguards in terms of dry needling;
- to allow the students to use dry needling techniques when treating various ortho and sports-related injuries;
Upon completion of the course, the students will be able to use their new abilities, and will be able to successfully use them when treating their athletes.
