She runs lectures in the US to develop the expertise of health care professionals. SFDN offers a twenty-five hr dry needling course all over the country, with upcoming events in Greeley, Colorado!

About Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
Using the technique of dry needling, an experienced approved medical professional works with acupuncture needles to enter the dermis and stimulate the professional athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the woman behind the company and CEO of Structure and Function Dry Needling, launched a real-world dry needling approach that is called Structure and Function Dry Needling, the namesake of her company! Throughout her years in the industry, Falsone garnered a tremendous amount of expertise which she then used to perfect her dry needling approach. Sue Falsone worked as Head Athletic Coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers, where she worked as the first woman to assume the role of Head Athletic Trainer in all of the four major sports in America. Also, Sue Falsone spent some time working as the Head Athletic Coach for the American Men’s National Soccer team.
The course wants to allow the clinician:
- to be able to use acupuncture needles in a proper manner, and also abide by official health guidelines and regulations;
- to get to know general and respective anatomies of the patient to be able to assure them of their safety while using dry needling;
- to use intramuscular stimulation when curing different orthopedic and sports-related conditions; as well as become proficient when using cupping techniques.
- to acquaint with the health professional the contraindications and safeguards while using said technique;
- to enable the students to use dry needling techniques when treating various orthopedic and sports-related injuries;
Upon completion of the course, the practitioners will have perfected their new abilities, and will be able to successfully use them when working on their athletes.
