We doubt that clinical method and diagnostic logic were rigorously applied to the RSI phenomenon, which helped to produce an unresolved controversy with widespread ramifications. Our hypothesis is that there is a central disturbance of nociception in this syndrome, induced by continual afferent barrage from nociceptors in anatomically relevant sites in the neck and upper limbs. Initial and proposed testing of this hypothesis are discussed.
