[shaker_image]Structure & Function: Dry Needling is an education company with the goal of teaching the dry needling approach to physiotherapists, hosted by Sue Falsone. She teaches courses throughout the US to empower health care professionals. SFDN offers dry needling classes, 25 hrs in length, in Olathe and other big cities across the United States.

During the lectures, Sue Falsone teaches using techniques such as cupping and intramuscular electrical stimulation (short: IMS).
Dry Needling and Sue Falsone
[shaker_image]Using the technique of dry needling, an expert certified medical professional uses dry needles to prick the skin and stimulate the professional athlete’s muscles. At SFDN, creator and Chief Executive Officer Sue Falsone launched a practical dry needling concept called SFDN. In the course of the decade in the business, Sue Falsone acquired an incredible amount of experience which she then used to develop her dry needling concept. Sue worked as Head Athletic Trainer for the LA Dodgers, during which she was the first woman to assume the role of Head Athletic Trainer in any of the four major sports in the US. Also, Sue spent some time working as the Head Athletic Trainer for the American Men’s National Soccer team.
The purpose of the course is:
- to master proper dry needle handling practices, and eliminate exposure to diseases transferred by blood;
- to get a better understanding the surface anatomy of the patient in terms of his safety when using acupuncture needles;
- to utilize intramuscular stimulation when curing different sports-related conditions; and to become proficient when using vacuum therapy techniques.
- to make certain the clinician knows of the contraindications and safety measures regarding dry needling;
- to use dry needling techniques in addressing prevalent sports-related pathologies;
When the course is finished, the students will be able to put together their newfound knowledge to cure varying conditions and ailments in sports and ortho medicine.
