[shaker_image]Sue Falsone created her own organization, Structure & Function: Dry Needling, to introduce dry needling to sports professionals. She runs courses in America to better the expertise of medical professionals. They offer a twenty-five hr dry needling class all over the US, with future events in South Bend. Over the course of 3 days, the course provides lectures on using fundamental dry needling approaches to treating a range of acute & serious conditions in athletes.
What is Dry Needling and Who is Sue Falsone?
[shaker_image]Dry needling, as a mix of skill and art, is performed by a health professional who uses dry needles to stimulate the muscles of the athlete. Sue Falsone, the woman behind the company and CEO of Structure and Function Dry Needling, started a real-world dry needling system that is called Structure and Function Dry Needling, which shares a name with her company. The approach is defined by a mix of skills Sue Falsone developed and enhanced over a couple of decades in the industry. As a true leader in her area, Sue Falsone worked as Head Athletic Coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers, making her the first female to assume the role of Head Athletic Trainer in the 4 major sports in America. The American Men’s National Soccer team also perceived her competence and offered her the role of Head Athletic Trainer.
The course wants to achieve the following:
- to learn proper needle handling methods, and avoid possible blood borne diseases;
- to understand the surface anatomy of the patient regarding his safety when handling dry needles;
- to utilize intramuscular stimulation when curing various orthopedic and sports-related conditions; and excel in the knowledge of vacuum therapy techniques.
- to make certain the clinician knows of the contraindications and safety measures regarding dry needling;
- to be able to use dry needling techniques in addressing common sports-related pathologies;
Upon completion of the course, the students will be confident enough to use their newfound knowledge in order to treat different pathologies in orthopedic and sports medicine.

It is advisable that the practitioners bring a few specific items along with them: a TENS unit (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation), alligator clamps, and a human anatomy book. Dry needles for use in class will be supplied to all students by the course staff.
