About Dry Needling and Sue Falsone
[shaker_image]Using the technique of dry needling, an experienced certified physical therapist uses his skill with acupuncture needles to penetrate the dermis and stimulate the muscles of the athlete. At SFDN, founder and Chief Executive Officer Sue Falsone started a dry needling concept named SFDN. Over the course of the decade in the business, Falsone garnered a great amount of expertise which she used to develop her dry needling approach. As a real pioneer in her field of expertise, Sue served as Head Athletic Coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers organization, making her the very first woman in the position of Head Athletic Trainer in the 4 major sports in the United States. The the United States Men’s National Soccer team also perceived her accomplishments and gave her the job of Head Athletic Trainer.
The course was designed for the health care professional:
- to allow the clinicians to use dry needling techniques when treating different ortho and sports-related injuries;
- to be able to apply intramuscular stimulation in treating commonplace orthopedic and sports-related problems; and to master different cupping techniques.
- to better understand the surface anatomy of the patient in regards to his well-being when working with dry needles;
- to master secure needle handling techniques, and eliminate risk of blood borne diseases;
