Structure & Function: Dry Needling
[shaker_image]Sue Falsone started the organization, Structure & Function: Dry Needling (SFDN), with the intention to educate and teach dry needling to medical professionals. She organizes lectures throughout America to develop the expertise of health care professionals. SFDN offers dry needling courses, twenty-five hrs in length, in Lowell and other big towns across the United States! Over the course of 3 days, the class offers training sessions on how to use important dry needling approaches to treating a range of acute or serious conditions in athletes. As part of the seminar program, Sue Falsone also presents how to use cupping and intramuscular electrical stimulation (short: IMS).
Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
[shaker_image]Using the technique of dry needling, an expert certified medical professional uses dry needles to penetrate the epidermis and stimulate the professional athlete’s muscles. At SFDN, founder and CEO Sue Falsone launched a hands-on dry needling concept called Structure & Function: Dry Needling! The concept is regarded as a combination of techniques Falsone combined and perfected over several years in the business. As a true leader in her area of expertise, she worked as Head Athletic Coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers, making her the first female to assume the position of Head Athletic Trainer in the four most important sports in the United States. The American Men’s National Soccer team also perceived her skills and offered her the role of Head Athletic Trainer.
The course wants to do the following:
- to master secure needle handling techniques, and prevent exposure to blood borne diseases;
- to get a better understanding the surface anatomy of the subject regarding his safety when handling needles;
- to be able to use intramuscular stimulation in treating commonplace ortho and sports-related conditions; and to master various cupping techniques.
- to familiarize with the health professional the contraindications and safety measures when using said technique;
- to enable the clinicians to utilize dry needling techniques when addressing various ortho and sports-related conditions;
Upon completion of the course, the students will have mastered their newly found skills, and will manage to use them to treat their athletes.
Information Regarding Our Classes
The courses cost $1295, and for every ten people someone signs up, they (their department or sports club) get registration fees waived for 1 person. course participants should bring the following three things: an anatomy book (edition and author unspecified), a Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation unit, as well as alligator clips. The lecturers will provide the needles for all participants to have throughout the course. In addition to currently approving Continued Education Units (CEUs) for their upcoming courses, SFDN is recognized by the Board of Certification, Inc. to offer continuing education to accredited Athletic Trainers. In a number of professions, CEUs are mandatory for to keep on working in their industry.
Presently, these places offer the ability to partake in continuing education classes approved by ProCert for Physiotherapists to get 26 CEUs: Lowell, Massachusetts. Further, National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA BOC) (P10069) offers the way to get twenty-five CEUs, Arizona Physical Therapy Association two and a half CEUs, and Georgia Physical Therapy Association 25 CEUs.
Information on How to Host a Class

Structure & Function’s dry needling events teach the newest approach to the science and art of dry needling, as well as intramuscular stimulation and cupping. Sue Falsone made use of her competence and expertise to combine pain management, dry needling, fascial manipulation, visceral manipulation, movement efficacy, soft tissue mobilization, and differential diagnosis to make the dry needling system currently sought after and praised all over America.
In using the Structure & Function approach, aside from increasing the overall repository of sports therapy skills, clinicians will be able to improve the care for their patients and athletes.
