[shaker_image]Sue Falsone created her company, Structure & Function: Dry Needling, with the intention to teach dry needling to medical professionals. She organizes courses all over America to improve the expertise of health care professionals. They offer a twenty-five hr dry needling course throughout America, with future events in Woodbridge!

As part of the class program, Sue Falsone teaches ways to use intramuscular electrical stimulation (abbreviated: IMS) and cupping.
About Sue Falsone and Dry Needling
Combining the art and science of dry needling, an experienced certified medical professional uses acupuncture needles to penetrate the skin and stimulate the athlete’s muscles. Sue Falsone, the founder and CEO of SFDN, developed a practical dry needling system named SFDN, which shares a name with her business! The system is defined by a mix of techniques Sue Falsone introduced and enhanced over many years in the business. Sue worked as Head Athletic Coach for the Los Angeles Dodgers, during which she served as the first woman to assume the role of Head Athletic Trainer in any of the four major sports in America. Also, Sue Falsone served as the Head Athletic Coach for the US Men’s National Soccer team.
The purpose of the course is:
- to understand safe acupuncture needle usage methods, and avoid risk of exposure to diseases transferred by blood;
- to get acquainted with general and respective anatomies of the patient so as to make sure they are safe when practicing the technique of dry needling on them;
- to apply intramuscular stimulation in curing everyday ortho conditions; and master different cupping techniques.
- to be certain the clinician knows of the contraindications and precautions in terms of dry needling;
- to be able to use dry needling techniques in treating common ortho and sports-related ailments;
After the course is over, the attendees will be proficient in the use of their newly learned abilities, and will manage to use them with success in treatment of their athletes.
