Over 3 days, the course consists of a bunch of topics on the basic dry needling techniques for curing a number of acute and chronic problems in professional athletes.
What is Dry Needling and Who is Sue Falsone?
[shaker_image]Combining the art and science of dry needling, a approved physical therapist works with dry needles to enter the epidermis and stimulate the professional athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the creator and Chief Executive Officer of Structure and Function Dry Needling, launched a practical dry needling approach that is called Structure and Function Dry Needling, the namesake of her organization! Over the course of the decade in the business, Sue Falsone garnered a great amount of expertise which she then used to perfect her dry needling concept. Sue Falsone worked as Head Athletic Trainer for the Los Angeles Dodgers organization, a period where she was the first woman to assume the role of Head Athletic Trainer in all of the 4 most popular sports in the United States. She also spent some time working as the Head Athletic Coach for the United States Men’s National Soccer team.
The course wants to do the following:
- to get to know general and respective anatomies of the subject to be able to assure them of their well-being when practicing dry needling on them;
- to be able to use dry needling techniques in treating prevalent ortho and sports-related pathologies;
- to apply intramuscular stimulation in treating commonplace orthopedic and sports-related pathologies; and master different cupping techniques.
- to make sure the health professional understands the contraindications and safety measures in in terms of dry needling;
