[shaker_image]Sue Falsone founded her enterprise, Structure & Function: Dry Needling, with the intention to teach dry needling to medical professionals. She organizes courses in the United States to better the expertise of health care professionals. SFDN offers a twenty-five hour dry needling class across the United States, with future events in McAllen, Texas. Spanning three days, the seminar provides lectures on how to use fundamental dry needling approaches to curing a number of acute & chronic problems in athletes.
Dry Needling and Sue Falsone
Dry needling, a combination of skill and art, is done by an expert physiotherapist who uses his knowledge of acupuncture needles to stimulate the athlete’s muscles. At Structure & Function Dry Needling, founder and Chief Executive Officer Sue Falsone developed a dry needling concept called SFDN! This system is defined by a mix of skills Sue combined and improved in the course of a couple of decades in the field. Sue Falsone worked as Head Athletic Trainer for the Los Angeles Dodgers, where she served as the first female Head Athletic Trainer in any of the 4 most important sports in the United States. She also served as the Head Athletic Coach for the American Men’s National Soccer team.
The goal of the course is the following:
- to better understand the external anatomy of the subject in regards to his safety while working with dry needles;
- to use dry needling techniques in addressing prevalent orthopedic and sports-related ailments;
- to use intramuscular stimulation when treating different and sports-related conditions; and excel when using vacuum therapy techniques.
- to familiarize with the clinician the contraindications and safety measures when using said technique;
- to handle dry needles in a secure way, and also abide by health rules and regulations;
After the course is over, the students will manage to put together their newfound abilities to cure different problems in sports and orthopedic medicine.
