Throughout the lectures, Sue Falsone presents the use of techniques like cupping and intramuscular electrical stimulation (abbreviated: IMS).
Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
Dry needling, a combination of art and science, is done by a medical professional who uses dry needles to stimulate the athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the woman behind the company and CEO of Structure and Function Dry Needling, launched a hands-on dry needling concept that is called SFDN, which shares a name with her company! This approach is defined by a blend of skills Sue developed and improved over the course of many decades in the field. Sue Falsone worked as Head Athletic Trainer for the Los Angeles Dodgers organization, during which she served as the first woman to assume the role of Head Athletic Coach in any of the four most important sports in the United States. She also worked as the Head Athletic Trainer for the United States Men’s National Soccer team.
The course was designed for the practitioner:
- to teach the practitioners to use dry needling techniques when treating various orthopedic and sports-related pathologies;
- to apply intramuscular stimulation in curing everyday orthopedic and sports-related pathologies; and learn various cupping techniques.
- to comprehend the surface anatomy of the subject in terms of his well-being while handling acupuncture needles;
- to be able to use dry needles in a safe way, as well as adhere to health guidelines and regulations;
- to make certain the practitioner understands the contraindications and precautions in regarding dry needling;
After the course is done, the participants will be able to use their new abilities, and will be able to successfully use them when treating their athletes.
