About Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
[shaker_image]Combining the art and science of dry needling, a licensed health care professional uses his skill with acupuncture needles to enter the dermis and stimulate the professional athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the creator and CEO of SFDN, started a practical dry needling approach called SFDN, the namesake of her organization. Over the course of the decade in the field, Sue Falsone gathered a tremendous amount of expertise which she then used to develop her dry needling concept. Sue worked as Head Athletic Coach for the LA Dodgers, during which she was the first female Head Athletic Coach in all of the four most popular sports in the United States. Also, Sue spent some time working as the Head Athletic Coach for the American Men’s National Soccer team.
The course wants to do the following:
- to be able to work with dry needles in a secure manner, and adhere to official health rules and guidelines;
- to get to know the anatomies of the subject to make sure they are safe as the clinician is practicing the technique of dry needling on them;
- to use intramuscular stimulation in curing everyday orthopedic conditions; and to master various cupping techniques.
- to show the practitioner the contraindications and safeguards when using said technique;
- to allow the clinicians to use dry needling techniques when curing various orthopedic and sports-related pathologies;
Upon completion of the course, the attendees will be able to use their newly found skills, and will be able to use them to treat their athletes.
