About Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
Dry needling, as a blend of art and science, is done by a physiotherapist who uses his knowledge of acupuncture needles to stimulate the muscles of the athlete. Sue Falsone, the creator and Chief Executive Officer of Structure and Function Dry Needling, developed a practical dry needling system that is called SFDN, the namesake of her business! In the course of the decade in the field, Sue garnered a great amount of expertise which she then used to develop her dry needling concept. Sue Falsone spent time working as Head Athletic Trainer for the LA Dodgers, a period where she was the first female Head Athletic Trainer in all of the 4 major sports in the US. Also, she spent some time working as the Head Athletic Coach for the United States Men’s National Soccer team.
