Structure & Function: Dry Needling
[shaker_image]Sue Falsone created her own enterprise, Structure & Function: Dry Needling, to introduce dry needling to health care professionals. She organizes classes in America to better the proficiency of health care professionals. SFDN offers a twenty-five hour dry needling seminar across the country, with future events in San Angelo. Spread across three days, the seminar teaches topics on the important dry needling methods for curing a number of acute and chronic conditions in professional athletes. During the seminar, Sue Falsone instructs on how to use techniques like intra-muscular electric stimulation (short: IMS) and cupping.
Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
[shaker_image]Dry needling, a blend of art and science, is performed by a skilled physical therapist who uses his knowledge of dry needles to stimulate the muscles of the athlete. Sue Falsone, the founder and CEO of Structure and Function Dry Needling, started a practical dry needling approach that is called SFDN, the namesake of her organization! Throughout the decade in the business, Sue gathered a tremendous amount of expertise which she used to invent her dry needling approach. As a real pioneer in her area of expertise, Sue worked as Head Athletic Trainer for the LA Dodgers, making her the very first woman in the position of Head Athletic Coach in the 4 most important sports in the United States. The the US Men’s National Soccer team also saw her competence and gave her the job of Head Athletic Trainer.
The course wants to allow the clinician:
- to understand safe acupuncture needle handling practices, and avoid potential diseases transferred by blood;
- to get a better understanding the external anatomy of the patient in terms of his well-being while handling dry needles;
- to apply intramuscular stimulation in treating commonplace ortho and sports-related problems; and also learn different cupping techniques.
- to show the practitioner the contraindications and safeguards while using the aforementioned technique;
- to teach the students to use dry needling techniques when treating various ortho and sports-related injuries;
Upon completion of the course, the attendees will be proficient in the use of their new skills, and will manage to use them to treat their athletes.
The price for the course is $1295, although one individual can participate in the class at no charge if their sports club or department brings ten other course participants. It is advisable that students take a couple of specific items with them to class: a TENS unit (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation), alligator clips, and a comprehensive book teaching human anatomy. Dry needles will be given to everyone by the seminar lecturers. Structure & Function: Dry Needling has been approved by the Board of Certification, Inc. (BOC) to provide services of continuing education to certified Athletic Trainers and is currently in the process of approving CEUs. In some professions, Continuing Education Units are obligatory for people to retain their licenses and keep working in their industry.
