[shaker_image]Sue Falsone founded the organization, Structure & Function: Dry Needling (SFDN), in order to teach dry needling to sports professionals. She teaches courses in the United States to improve the knowledge of medical professionals. Structure & Function: Dry Needling offers a twenty-five hour dry needling course across the country, with future events in North Charleston. Spanning 3 days, the seminar consists of topics on the basic dry needling methods for curing a number of acute and chronic ailments in professional athletes. As part of the lectures, Sue Falsone presents techniques of cupping and intramuscular electrical stimulation (abbreviated: IMS).
What is Dry Needling and Who is Sue Falsone?
Using the technique of dry needling, a licensed physiotherapist uses his skill with acupuncture needles to enter the dermis and stimulate the professional athlete’s muscles. At SFDN, creator and Chief Executive Officer Sue Falsone launched a hands-on dry needling concept named SFDN. The approach is characterized by a combination of techniques Sue Falsone combined and enhanced in the course of many years in the field. As a real leader in her field of expertise, Sue Falsone served as Head Athletic Trainer for the Los Angeles Dodgers, which made her the very first female to assume the position of Head Athletic Trainer in the four major sports in America. The the United States Men’s National Soccer team also perceived her skills and gave her the job of Head Athletic Trainer.
The purpose of the course is:
- to better understand the anatomies of the subject in order to be able to assure them of their well-being while using dry needling;
- to allow the clinicians to utilize dry needling techniques when curing different orthopedic and sports-related injuries;
- to be able to apply intramuscular stimulation in treating everyday ortho conditions; and master different cupping techniques.
- to show the clinician the contraindications and safety measures while using the aforementioned technique;
- to use dry needles in a proper way, as well as adhere to official health rules and regulations;
After the course is over, the students will be proficient in the use of their new skills, and will manage to use them to treat their athletes.
The fee for the classes is one thousand two hundred ninety five dollars, but 1 person may participate in the class for free if their sports club or facility brings 10 other students. They recommend that course participants bring certain items with them to class: a TENS unit, alligator clips, and a book teaching human anatomy. The staff supply the needles for all participants to use in class. SFDN is licensed by the Board of Certification, Inc. (BOC) to offer continuing education to licensed Athletic Trainers and is as of this moment approving CEUs (Continuing Education Units). In a number of fields, Continuing Education Units are mandatory for to keep on working in their industry.
As of now, the following cities allow you to partake in continuing education courses certified by ProCert for Physical Therapists to earn 26 CEUs: North Charleston, South Carolina. Further, NATA BOC (National Athletic Trainers’ Association) (P10069) offers the ability to earn 25 CEUs, Arizona Physical Therapy Association two and a half Continuing Education Units, and Georgia Physical Therapy Association twenty-five CEUs.
