Abstract

Genuine disorder caused by repetitive movement has unmistakable features vitally different from occupational pseudo-illness, which comes and goes in new guises and massive epidemics wherever the label legitimizes gain from compensation. The assumption of an existing label such as the carpal tunnel syndrome gives the false idea of greater potential for deception. The solution to the menace lies in logical reasoning, which recognizes falsity before it begins to dominate the minds of the community.
