[shaker_image]Sue Falsone started her own enterprise, Structure & Function: Dry Needling (SFDN), to introduce dry needling to sports professionals. She coordinates classes in America to develop the expertise of health care professionals. SFDN offers dry needling classes, 25 hrs in length, in Macon, Georgia and other big towns throughout the US. Over the course of 3 days, the seminar teaches different topics on the essential dry needling approaches in curing various acute and chronic conditions in professional athletes.
Who is Sue Falsone and What is Dry Needling?
Dry needling, as a combination of skill and art, is done by a skilled health professional who uses dry needles to stimulate the professional athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the founder and CEO of Structure and Function Dry Needling, developed a hands-on dry needling concept named Structure and Function Dry Needling, which shares a name with her company. This system is regarded as a mix of skills Falsone introduced and perfected in the course of a couple of decades in the business. As an original leader in her field, Sue Falsone worked as Head Athletic Trainer for the LA Dodgers organization, which made her the first female to assume the position of Head Athletic Coach in the 4 most popular sports in the US. The the US Men’s National Soccer team also saw her accomplishments and made her Head Athletic Trainer.
The aim of the course is the following:
- to work with dry needles in a proper way, and adhere to official health guidelines and regulations;
- to better understand the anatomies of the subject to be able to assure them of their well-being while using dry needling on them;
- to successfully employ intramuscular stimulation when curing different ortho and sports-related problems; and excel in the use of vacuum therapy techniques.
- to familiarize with the health professional the contraindications and safety measures for using said technique;
- to use dry needling techniques in addressing common sports-related injuries;
After the course is over, the students will manage to use their new knowledge to treat varying pathologies and issues in sports and ortho medicine.
