I think that this osteopath may be a good one in
Arizona. I have read several of his papers and have received
information from his practice. He also has 1-week treatment
sessions for "out of towners". He treats TOS, CTS and other
RSI's. He is:
Dr. Benjamin Sucher
Center for Carpal Tunnel Studies

Paradise Valley, AZ 85253-1623
Dr. Ben Sucher is one of the finest RSI docs I know. As a disclaimer, Dr. Sucher is my research partner, so I may be biased, but he has treated both a close friend of mine (for thoracic outlet syndrome) and a relative of mine (for carpal tunnel syndrome). They have had nothing but great things to say about Dr. Sucher. What makes Dr. Sucher stand out is that he is not only a clinician, he is an active researcher in the area of upper extremity RSI's. He has published many research articles on the subject, and is asked to speak around the world on the topic.

Specifically their hand/arm specialist is Richard C. Christiansen, M.D. (Board certified orthopaedic surgeon) Very knowledgable and willing to discuss alternatives, very good on keeping functionality where it is feasible, and adjusting attitudes (as in telling you flatly - if you don't rest it, it will NEVER heal!) as necessary, (yeah, he's done it to me; and I deserved it). Emphasizes rest, non-invasive treatments, and rehab if at all possible, very candid about the success rates of surgery for various conditions.

He is one of the very few doctors who understand and know how to treat RSI.

Name: John Gilbert Location: Southwest Massage Group 5721 East Fifth St. Suite 2 Tucson, Arizona Phone: (520) 271-0988John is a great neuromuscular massage therapist. Periodically my neck gets "locked" and John is always able to fix it, so I can get back to carrying around my 23 pound baby! Loosening muscles in the back and neck always seem to help RSI symptoms, and John is able to do that.
He's great with any kind of tight muscles/tendons, etc. and is also able to loosen up hip flexors, calve muscles, and forearm tendons. His rates are good, too, at $60.00 a session if you buy a set of five sessions. Also, he has a neat online booking calendar, so that you can make your own appointments, and cancel them if needed.
