Sue Falsone, the woman behind the company and CEO of SFDN, developed a real-world dry needling system named SFDN, which shares a name with her company. The system is characterized by a blend of techniques Falsone developed and perfected over many years in the business. Sue Falsoneís experience includes stints as Head Athletic Coach for the LA Dodgers organization, where she served as the first female Head Athletic Trainer in all of the four most important sports in the United States.
