Who is Sue Falsone and What is Dry Needling?
[shaker_image]In the world of dry needling, an experienced licensed health care professional works with dry needles to penetrate the dermis and stimulate the professional athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the creator and Chief Executive Officer of SFDN, launched a real-world dry needling system named Structure and Function Dry Needling, the namesake of her company. In the course of the decade in the industry, Sue gathered a great amount of experience which she then used to perfect her dry needling system. Sue spent time working as Head Athletic Trainer for the Los Angeles Dodgers, where she worked as the first woman to assume the role of Head Athletic Coach in all of the four most popular sports in the United States. She also spent some time working as the Head Athletic Coach for the American Men’s National Soccer team.
