She organizes classes in America to develop the expertise of medical professionals.

Who is Sue Falsone and What is Dry Needling?
Combining the art and science of dry needling, an experienced certified health care professional uses his skill with acupuncture needles to enter the skin and stimulate the athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the creator and Chief Executive Officer of SFDN, started a hands-on dry needling system that is called SFDN, which shares a name with her business! The concept is regarded as a mix of skills Sue combined and enhanced over the course of many decades in the field. Sue Falsone worked as Head Athletic Coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers, a period where she worked as the first woman to assume the role of Head Athletic Trainer in all of the 4 major sports in America. Also, Sue served as the Head Athletic Coach for the American Men’s National Soccer team.
The course wants to do the following:
- to better understand the surface anatomy of the subject regarding his well-being while working with needles;
- to use dry needling techniques in addressing common ortho and sports-related pathologies;
- to apply intramuscular stimulation in treating everyday ortho pathologies; and also master different cupping techniques.
- to be sure the health professional knows of the contraindications and precautions in in terms of dry needling;
- to learn proper needle handling techniques, and eliminate risk of exposure to blood borne diseases;
Upon completion of the course, the participants will be able to combine their new knowledge in order to cure various problems in sports and orthopedic medicine.
[shaker_image]The price for the classes is $1295, however 1 person may participate in the class at no charge if their sports club or department registers ten other course participants. It is advisable that participants bring certain items with them: a TENS unit (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation), alligator clips, and a comprehensive book teaching human anatomy. Dry needles for use in class will be supplied to all students by the seminar lecturers.
