A pioneer in the treatment of RSI in Vancouver is a physician named Dr. Chan Gunn, who operates the Gunn Pain Clinic. I have had quite a bit of success with his techniques for trigger point release using dry needling, which I have been treated with at the Clinic for Injury and Disease Response in Toronto (with another physician, Dr. Tick), I understand he sees few patients these days, but his office should be able to help you.
I would suggest you contact I-Stop, the Institute for the Study and Treatment of Pain in Vancouver. You mention generalized RSI so I assume it is myofascial type pain. I-Stop is headed by Dr. Chan Gunn, who is world reknowned for his treatment of myofascial pain through the intramuscular stimulation technique aka dry needling. I am being treating by a Dr. Gunn trained physician and I have been extremely happy with the treatment results. For more info, check out the I-Stop website. I-STOP is located at 5655 Cambie Street, Lower Floor, Vancouver, B.C., Canada V5Z 3A4 Tel: (604) 264-7867 Fax: (604) 264-7860
I am a pianist who was severly crippled for ten years. I found a chiropractor with an usually broad eduction base including an appreciation for soft tissue work. He has completely fixed me. He is very interested in RSI and musicians' injuries. I have sent him a large number of RSI referals and they have also all been very impressed.
