RSI treatment programme for overseas
clients, including several from countries like USA, Canada,
UK, France, Sweden, Norway, Poland, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Zimbabwe, Singapore,
China, Korea, Thailand, Israel, New Zealand and Australia (besides
from throughout India) have already been successfully treated
at RECOUP since 2001.
RSI's and people suffering from it vary and so does the treatment.
However, the following information would be helpful as a guide
to our prospective overseas clients.
Dr. Sharan evaluates all patients before proposing an individualised
treatment plan. The assessment includes a comprehensive musculoskeletal/myofascial
examination with a focus on range of motion, trigger points, biomechanical
problems, and evidence of nerve or blood vessel entrapment, plus
any other pertinent tests according to the presenting symptoms.
Further assessments may include a workstation evaluation with
a focus on biomechanical and ergonomic issues, blood tests, nerve
conduction studies, x-rays, and MRI Scans.
