About Dry Needling and Sue Falsone
In the world of dry needling, an expert approved medical professional uses dry needles to prick the dermis and stimulate the muscles of the athlete. Sue Falsone, the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Structure and Function Dry Needling, started a real-world dry needling concept called SFDN, which shares a name with her organization! Throughout her years in the industry, Falsone gathered a tremendous amount of experience which she then used to invent her dry needling system. As an original leader in her area, she served as Head Athletic Trainer for the LA Dodgers, making her the very first female to assume the position of Head Athletic Trainer in the four most important sports in the United States. The the United States Men’s National Soccer team also recognized her competence and made her Head Athletic Trainer.
The course wants to achieve the following:
- to get to know general and respective anatomies of the patient so as to make sure they are safe when using the technique of dry needling;
- to be able to use dry needling techniques in treating prevalent sports-related injuries;
- to use intramuscular stimulation in treating commonplace orthopedic and sports-related conditions; and learn various cupping techniques.
- to point out to the practitioner the contraindications and precautions when using said technique;
- to handle acupuncture needles in a proper way, and also abide by health guidelines and rules;
Upon completion of the course, the attendees will have mastered their new skills, and will be able to use them to treat their athletes.
