What is Dry Needling and Who is Sue Falsone?
[shaker_image]Dry needling, a blend of art and science, is performed by a physiotherapist who uses his knowledge of dry needles to stimulate the athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the woman behind the company and Chief Executive Officer of SFDN, developed a hands-on dry needling concept called Structure and Function Dry Needling, the namesake of her company! Over the course of the decade in the business, Sue acquired a great amount of experience which she used to perfect her dry needling approach. As an original pioneer in her area of expertise, Sue Falsone served as Head Athletic Trainer for the LA Dodgers organization, making her the first woman in the role of Head Athletic Coach in the four most important sports in the US. The American Men’s National Soccer team also perceived her competence and made her Head Athletic Trainer.
The course was designed for the practitioner:
- to handle acupuncture needles in a secure way, as well as adhere to health rules and guidelines;
- to get a better understanding the external anatomy of the patient in terms of his safety while handling dry needles;
- to successfully employ intramuscular stimulation when curing different ortho and sports-related conditions; and excel in the knowledge of cupping techniques.
- to be sure the health professional is acquainted with the contraindications and safeguards in terms of dry needling;
- to be able to use dry needling techniques in treating prevalent orthopedic and sports-related injuries;
After the course is over, the practitioners will be proficient in the use of their newly learned skills, and will be able to use them to treat their athletes.
