About Dry Needling and Sue Falsone
Dry needling, a mix of skill and art, is done by a skilled physiotherapist who works with dry needles to stimulate the athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Structure and Function Dry Needling, started a practical dry needling approach named Structure and Function Dry Needling, the namesake of her business. The concept is defined by a combination of techniques Falsone combined and perfected over several years in the business. As a true leader in her area, Sue Falsone worked as Head Athletic Coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers, making her the first woman in the position of Head Athletic Trainer in the 4 most important sports in America. The the United States Men’s National Soccer team also saw her accomplishments and offered her the role of Head Athletic Trainer.
The course wants to do the following:
- to allow the students to utilize dry needling techniques when treating various ortho and sports-related conditions;
- to use intramuscular stimulation in curing commonplace ortho and sports-related problems; and to master different cupping techniques.
- to better comprehend the anatomy of the patient in terms of his well-being when using acupuncture needles;
- to learn proper needle usage practices, and prevent risk of blood borne diseases;
- to make sure the clinician understands the contraindications and precautions in regarding dry needling;
After the course is done, the practitioners will be proficient in the use of their new abilities, and will be able to use them to treat their athletes.
