About Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
[shaker_image]Dry needling, a mix of art and science, is performed by a physiotherapist who uses his knowledge of dry needles to stimulate the athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the woman behind the company and Chief Executive Officer of Structure and Function Dry Needling, launched a real-world dry needling system called Structure and Function Dry Needling, which shares a name with her organization. The concept is characterized by a blend of techniques Falsone introduced and enhanced over several decades in the industry. As a true pioneer in her field of expertise, Sue worked as Head Athletic Coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers organization, which made her the very first female to assume the position of Head Athletic Coach in the 4 major sports in the United States. The the US Men’s National Soccer team also perceived her competence and gave her the job of Head Athletic Trainer.
The course wants to achieve the following:
- to enable the clinicians to employ dry needling techniques when curing different ortho and sports-related conditions;
- to be able to use intramuscular stimulation in treating everyday orthopedic conditions; as well as learn various cupping techniques.
- to better comprehend the anatomy of the patient in regards to his well-being while handling acupuncture needles;
- to handle dry needles in a secure way, and also adhere to health rules and regulations;
- to point out to the health professional the contraindications and safety measures while using the aforementioned technique;
When the course is finished, the participants will manage to put together their new abilities to cure various conditions and issues in sports and ortho medicine.
