Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
In the world of dry needling, an experienced approved health care professional works with dry needles to prick the dermis and stimulate the athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the woman behind the company and Chief Executive Officer of Structure and Function Dry Needling, launched a real-world dry needling approach that is called SFDN, the namesake of her organization! The approach is defined by a blend of techniques Falsone developed and enhanced over several years in the industry. As an original pioneer in her area of expertise, Sue served as Head Athletic Coach for the LA Dodgers, making her the very first female to assume the position of Head Athletic Trainer in the 4 most popular sports in the United States. The the US Men’s National Soccer team also recognized her competence and offered her the role of Head Athletic Trainer.
The objectives of the course are the following:

- to get to know both general and individual anatomies of the patient so as to make sure they are safe as the clinician is using the technique of dry needling;
