[shaker_image]Dry needling, a blend of art and science, is done by a physical therapist who uses his knowledge of dry needles to stimulate the professional athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the creator and CEO of Structure and Function Dry Needling, developed a hands-on dry needling approach called Structure and Function Dry Needling, which shares a name with her organization! The system is characterized by a blend of techniques Falsone combined and perfected in the course of a couple of years in the business. As an original leader in her field of expertise, Sue served as Head Athletic Trainer for the LA Dodgers, which made her the first female to assume the role of Head Athletic Trainer in the four most important sports in America. The the US Men’s National Soccer team also recognized her skills and gave her the job of Head Athletic Trainer.
