Our Theory in a Nutshell... or a 5-Page Nutshell

The following figure pretty much distills our 234-page book down as far as it can go. If it makes sense, the read more, our 5-page theory... it might explain why no one else seems to solve your RSI!


  1. Jack! Thanks for the amazing book. Is there a way I could find out if there is someone who Suparna might recommend in northern California? I am in need of serious help

    1. Amar, sorry for the late reply. We're just getting into the Blogger way of working. Sorry, can't recommend anyone but Suparna did reply to another inquiry about what to look for in a therapist. You could also join and inquire there. -Jack

  2. Good Job Jack and Suparna. I live in Central Florida, which makes it rather difficult for me to consult you in person. Is there any PT around here that you could refer. if not, could you let me know what to look for when choosing a PT?

    1. Rana, Sorry for the late reply. Look for a PT who'll do a thorough evaluation and target the causes of the problem, not just the symptoms. You may need some manual therapy, so you should look for a therapist who is knowledgeable in that. After your symptoms have been controlled, you'll need a comprehensive exercise program, and possibly some endurance training to get back to /continue with the activity that caused the injury. You need someone whose knowledge you trust to be able to guide you through the ups and downs of recovery. Hope this helps!
      Regards, Suparna
