Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
Using the technique of dry needling, an expert certified health care professional works with dry needles to prick the epidermis and stimulate the athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the woman behind the company and Chief Executive Officer of SFDN, developed a hands-on dry needling approach called Structure and Function Dry Needling, which shares a name with her organization. Over the course of her years in the field, Falsone acquired a tremendous amount of expertise which she used to invent her dry needling approach. Sue Falsone spent time working as Head Athletic Coach for the LA Dodgers organization, during which she was the first woman to assume the role of Head Athletic Trainer in any of the four most popular sports in the United States. She also served as the Head Athletic Coach for the American Men’s National Soccer team.
