Dry Needling and Sue Falsone
Combining the art and science of dry needling, an expert licensed physical therapist uses his skill with acupuncture needles to enter the skin and stimulate the muscles of the professional athlete. Sue Falsone, the founder and CEO of Structure and Function Dry Needling, developed a hands-on dry needling approach named Structure and Function Dry Needling, which shares a name with her organization. The approach is characterized by a mix of skills Falsone introduced and enhanced over many years in the business. Sue worked as Head Athletic Trainer for the LA Dodgers, a period where she worked as the first woman to assume the role of Head Athletic Trainer in any of the 4 major sports in the United States.
