Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
Dry needling, a blend of art and science, is done by a physiotherapist who uses his knowledge of dry needles to stimulate the muscles of the athlete. At Structure & Function Dry Needling, creator and Chief Executive Officer Sue Falsone launched a hands-on dry needling system named SFDN. This system is characterized by a combination of techniques Sue introduced and improved over the course of several decades in the business. Sue worked as Head Athletic Coach for the LA Dodgers organization, during which she was the first female Head Athletic Coach in all of the 4 most popular sports in the US. Also, Sue spent some time working as the Head Athletic Coach for the US Men’s National Soccer team.
The course was designed for the health care professional:
- to enable the practitioners to employ dry needling techniques when treating different orthopedic and sports-related injuries;
- to successfully utilize intramuscular stimulation when curing various ortho and sports-related pathologies; and to become proficient when using cupping techniques.
- to get to know the anatomies of the subject to be able to assure them of their well-being when clinician is practicing dry needling;
- to understand safe needle usage practices, and prevent possible diseases transferred by blood;
- to familiarize with the clinician the contraindications and precautions for using the aforementioned technique;
When the course is finished, the participants will be confident enough to put together their new skills in order to cure various pathologies and issues within the fields of sports and ortho medicine.
The events cost one thousand two hundred ninety five dollars, and when someone signs ten people up, they (their department or facility) get free tuition for one person. They recommend that participants take a few specific things with them to the seminar: a TENS unit (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation), alligator clips, and a book teaching human anatomy. Dry needles for use in class will be made available to everyone attending by the class lecturers. SFDN is licensed by the Board of Certification, Inc.
