Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
Dry needling, as a blend of skill and art, is performed by an expert health professional who works with dry needles to stimulate the athlete’s muscles. At Structure & Function Dry Needling, founder and CEO Sue Falsone started a practical dry needling concept called Structure & Function: Dry Needling. This approach is characterized by a combination of skills Sue Falsone introduced and perfected in the course of several years in the industry. As a real leader in her area, she was Head Athletic Trainer for the LA Dodgers organization, which made her the very first female to assume the role of Head Athletic Coach in the four most popular sports in the United States. The the US Men’s National Soccer team also recognized her competence and gave her the job of Head Athletic Trainer.
