She runs classes all over the United States to improve the expertise of sports professionals. Structure & Function: Dry Needling offers dry needling classes, twenty-five hrs in length, in Columbus and other big cities across the United States!

Throughout the course, Sue Falsone teaches the use of techniques such as cupping and intramuscular electrical stimulation (short: IMS).
Who is Sue Falsone and What is Dry Needling?
Combining the art and science of dry needling, a certified physical therapist uses his skill with acupuncture needles to penetrate the epidermis and stimulate the muscles of the athlete. Sue Falsone, the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Structure and Function Dry Needling, started a real-world dry needling system that is called Structure and Function Dry Needling, which shares a name with her company. The system is regarded as a combination of skills Sue introduced and perfected over a couple of decades in the business. Sue spent time working as Head Athletic Trainer for the LA Dodgers, during which she worked as the first woman to assume the role of Head Athletic Trainer in any of the 4 major sports in the US. She also served as the Head Athletic Coach for the US Men’s National Soccer team.
The course was designed for the clinician:
- to get to know general and respective anatomies of the patient so as to make sure they are safe while practicing dry needling on them;
- to enable the practitioners to employ dry needling techniques when addressing different ortho and sports-related conditions;
- to be able to utilize intramuscular stimulation in aiding commonplace ortho problems; and master various cupping techniques.
- to point out to the clinician the contraindications and safeguards when using said technique;
- to be able to handle acupuncture needles in a secure manner, and abide by official health rules and guidelines;
Upon completion of the course, the students will have perfected their new abilities, and will be able to use them with success when working on their athletes.
