Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
Dry needling, a blend of art and science, is done by a skilled health professional who works with dry needles to stimulate the athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the creator and CEO of Structure and Function Dry Needling, developed a practical dry needling concept that is called SFDN, which shares a name with her organization! In the course of the decade in the industry, Falsone gathered a tremendous amount of experience which she then used to invent her dry needling approach. Sue Falsone worked as Head Athletic Coach for the LA Dodgers, where she worked as the first woman to assume the role of Head Athletic Coach in all of the 4 major sports in the United States. She also worked as the Head Athletic Coach for the American Men’s National Soccer team.
The course was designed for the clinician:
- to enable the students to employ dry needling techniques when addressing different ortho and sports-related injuries;
- to utilize intramuscular stimulation in treating everyday ortho problems; as well as master various cupping techniques.
- to better understand the external anatomy of the patient in regards to his safety when using acupuncture needles;
- to use dry needles in a secure way, and abide by health rules and regulations;
- to make certain the practitioner is acquainted with the contraindications and precautions in regarding dry needling;
Upon completion of the course, the practitioners will be proficient in the use of their newly found skills, and will manage to successfully use them in treatment of their athletes.
