Pain Pump

Research has shown that pain pumps that deliver medication directly to the shoulder after surgery can cause the progressive destruction of shoulder cartilage. A shoulder pain pump is a small device developed recently to deliver pain medication (bupivacaine, epinephrine) directly into the shoulder joint.

How can a shoulder pain pump affect you and your loved ones?

According to a recent study published by the American Journal of Sports Medicine, this sort of pain pump is identified as cause of a condition known as Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis (PAGCL), a loss of cartilage in the shoulder after shoulder surgery.

Common symptoms of PAGCL include:

  • Shoulder pain both at rest and in motion
  • Stiffness of the shoulder
  • Weakness of the shoulder
  • Clicking, popping or grinding
  • Limited range of motion
