Dry needling, as a mix of art and science, is performed by a skilled medical professional who uses acupuncture needles to stimulate the professional athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the founder and CEO of SFDN, launched a real-world dry needling system named SFDN, the namesake of her company! Over the course of the decade in the field, Falsone acquired an incredible amount of expertise which she then used to develop her dry needling concept.
