To identify physical and occupational specialists that have published about RSI in the San Francisco area, the research team began by looking through LinkedIn and through peer-reviewed journals in the same fields such as American Occupational Therapy Association and the Journal of Orthopedic and Sports Physical Therapy. We attempted to link physical and occupational therapists in the San Francisco area with authors of peer-reviewed articles and papers in these journals. While some publications were RSI-related, the research team was unable to find specialists who exclusively wrote and published RSI-related articles.
