Sensory neural processing in work-related upper limb disorders

Mitchell, S, Cooper, C., Martyn, C and Coggon, D. (2000) Sensory neural processing in work-related upper limb disorders Occupational Medicine, 50, (1), pp. 30-32. (doi:10.1093/occmed/50.1.30).

Record type: Article


Pain in the upper limb is a common complaint in adults, and is often attributed to or exacerbated by occupational activities. In many patients there is no demonstrable pathology in the neck or arm to account for the symptom, and this has prompted the hypothesis that such cases might arise through abnormal neural processing of sensory information with a lowering of pain thresholds. In this paper we review the evidence in support of this theory and suggest directions for future research.
