Having just found your site via a reference on the RSI-UK site, I thought you may like to know of another UK doctor to add to your list. He has just got me back to normal after suffering a diffuse RSI caused by Spinal Dysfunction due to poor postures at work (I am a Sonographer working full-time for the NHS). Details are as follows:
Dr. Grahame Brown Consultant in Musculoskeletal and Sports and Fitness Medicine NHS work: The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital (The Woodlands) Northfield Birmingham England Private work: Birmingham Nuffield Somerset Road Edgbaston Birmingham EnglandI have recommended him to several of my fellow sufferers; 2 have already seen him and agree entirely re. his knowledge of this subject.

Try Ainsley Moden. She's based in Chiswick.
She's lovely and really knows her stuff,
Try speaking to Leith Brown at the Harley Street Pain Clinic:
He helped me hugely in a few sessions.
Forget doctors, you're wasting your time there. If you're anywhere near London, then go here. http://www.physioatwork.co.uk/contactus.asp Ask for Bronwyn, she certainly knows her stuff, treated me a while back with good results, and was responsible for pointing me in the direction of the 'It's Not Carpal Tunnel Syndrome' book that everyone reckons is the RSI bible.

In the UK (which sometimes tries to pretend it isn't in Europe), Dr
R.M. Pearson is an acknowledged expert sympathetic to RSI cases; he's
been an expert witness in several RSI cases in the courts, typically
on the side of the sufferer.
phone +44 171 4365961 (Harley Street)
He also practices at Harold Wood hospital (Romford, N.E. London) on the NHS.
For acute symptoms I went to Leith Brown, a Manipulation Physiotherapist, 30 Weymouth Street, (020) 7636 3433, 10 minutes' walk from Oxford Circus. He was terrific, particularly for the acute symptoms. Please note that Manipulation Physiotherapy is very different to other kinds of physiotherapy I've experienced, and is to be distinguished from manipulatIVE physiotherapy. The most noticeable difference, for me, was how gentle and subtle it is, and how incredibly effective. I was out of severe pain after my first session, and securely out of it after a few more. Along with several other physios (I've moved around a lot) he recommended the Alexander Technique to continue the process he had started.
(in regard to Alexander instructors,) I'd really recommend Delia Rosenboom (0208) 943 9341, in Teddington, who I know personally. You could also try: - Mary Jane Ashford at the Bloomsbury Alexander Centre (0171) 358 0534, Bristol House, 80A Southampton Row, WC1B 4BB - Sean Carey (020) 7749 7246, Alexander Teaching Centre, Rivington Business Centre, 82 Great Eastern Street - The Lansdowne Road teachers in Holland Park (020 7727 7222). Alternatively, take a look at the STAT website to find the teacher nearest you: http://www.stat.org.uk.
