Who is Sue Falsone and What is Dry Needling?
[shaker_image]Combining the art and science of dry needling, an experienced approved health care professional uses his skill with acupuncture needles to penetrate the epidermis and stimulate the muscles of the athlete. At SFDN, creator and Chief Executive Officer Sue Falsone founded a hands-on dry needling approach that goes by Structure & Function: Dry Needling. In the course of her years in the field, Sue gathered an incredible amount of expertise which she then used to develop her dry needling concept. Sue worked as Head Athletic Trainer for the LA Dodgers organization, during which she was the first woman to assume the role of Head Athletic Coach in all of the 4 most popular sports in the US. Also, Sue Falsone served as the Head Athletic Coach for the US Men’s National Soccer team.
Objectives of the Course
The objectives of the course are the following:
- to understand proper acupuncture needle usage techniques, and prevent risk of blood borne diseases;
- to better understand general and individual anatomies of the subject to be able to assure them of their safety as the clinician is practicing dry needling on them;
- to successfully employ intramuscular stimulation when curing different ortho and sports-related problems; and become proficient in the knowledge of vacuum therapy techniques.
- to be sure the clinician understands the contraindications and precautions regarding dry needling;
- to use dry needling techniques in curing commonplace ortho and sports-related pathologies;
After the course is over, the students will have perfected their newly found skills, and will be able to use them to treat their athletes.
