Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
[shaker_image]In the world of dry needling, an experienced licensed health care professional works with dry needles to penetrate the skin and stimulate the professional athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the creator and Chief Executive Officer of SFDN, launched a practical dry needling approach named Structure and Function Dry Needling, which shares a name with her organization! The concept is characterized by a mix of skills Sue Falsone introduced and perfected over the course of several years in the field. Sue Falsone worked as Head Athletic Trainer for the LA Dodgers organization, during which she was the first woman to assume the role of Head Athletic Coach in all of the four major sports in the United States. She also served as the Head Athletic Coach for the United States Men’s National Soccer team.
The goal of the course is the following:
- to allow the students to utilize dry needling techniques when treating different ortho and sports-related pathologies;
- to utilize intramuscular stimulation when treating various ortho and sports-related pathologies; as well as excel in the use of vacuum therapy techniques.
- to better understand the surface anatomy of the patient in terms of his safety when handling dry needles;
- to master safe dry needle handling methods, and avoid risk of diseases transferred by blood;
