Dry Needling and Sue Falsone
Dry needling, as a blend of skill and art, is performed by an expert health professional who uses his knowledge of dry needles to stimulate the athlete’s muscles. At SFDN, founder and CEO Sue Falsone founded a hands-on dry needling approach that goes by Structure & Function: Dry Needling! Throughout the decade in the field, Falsone garnered a great amount of expertise which she then used to invent her dry needling approach. As a true pioneer in her area of expertise, Sue worked as Head Athletic Trainer for the LA Dodgers organization, which made her the very first female to assume the role of Head Athletic Coach in the four most important sports in America. The the US Men’s National Soccer team also recognized her competence and offered her the role of Head Athletic Trainer.
The course wants to allow the medical professional:
- to get acquainted with general and respective anatomies of the patient so as to be able to assure them of their well-being while using dry needling on them;
- to teach the clinicians to utilize dry needling techniques when addressing various ortho and sports-related pathologies;
- to be able to use intramuscular stimulation in treating commonplace orthopedic and sports-related problems; as well as learn various cupping techniques.
- to familiarize with the health professional the contraindications and safety measures while using said technique;
- to master safe acupuncture needle handling methods, and avoid exposure to blood borne diseases;
After the course is over, the participants will be able to use their new abilities, and will be able to use them with success when working on their athletes.
