Travell & Bigelow (1946) also concluded from clinical observations on patients with referred pain from skeletal muscle that it does not follow a simple segmental pattern for, as they say, ‘the reference from a single site may comprise fragments of several “segmental pain areas” without including any one entirely, or may take in a whole “segmental area,” skip the adjacent one and reappear distally’. Hockaday & Whitty (1967) in attempting to clarify the situation studied referred sensations produced by injecting 6% saline into interspinous ligaments in 28 normal subjects, and concluded that the: … site of reference for a given site of stimulus was constant and replicable in the individual, but was not always confined to the segment of innervation in which the injection was given.

Typical of this view was the one expressed by Ellman & Shaw (1950) who, during the course of discussing patients with this disorder stated: From the striking disparity between the gross nature of their symptoms and the poverty of the physical findings … it seems clear that the nature of this often very prolonged incapacity is psychiatric in the majority of cases … the patient aches in his limbs because in fact he aches in his mind. Another reason was that by the 1950s specialists in the field of physical medicine were of the opinion that there is no such disorder as muscular rheumatism and that the pain, said to be associated with it, occurs as the result of disorders in the vertebral column with, in particular, degenerative discs impinging upon nerve roots (Cyriax 1948, de Blecourt 1954, Christie 1958).
