Shoulder Pain Pump Supposed to Alleviate Pain, Not Cause It

Shoulder pain pumps were intended to alleviate pain following shoulder surgery. What many people who have used shoulder pain pumps have found is that instead of alleviating pain, they cause several problems.

The way these shoulder pain pumps work is that they deliver medicine directly into the shoulder joint. The medicine used includes anesthetics.

In theory, this should be a big aid in reducing the intense pain following arthroscopic shoulder surgery. As many scientists know, going from theory to practice can often be troublesome.

Shoulder Pain Pump Side Effects

As previously suggested, the jump from theory to practice for the shoulder pain pump has been seen to be problematic. Several nasty side effects have resulted from their use.

These side effects include Chondrolysis, also known as Post Arthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis.

This side effect is a result of the deterioration of cartilage located within the shoulder joint. People who suffer from this side effect experience severe problems such as shoulder popping, extreme pain and clicking.

Legal Help?

With many such averse side effects from devices and medicines the question arises regarding the possibility of legal assistance in the face of these harsh side effects.

One of our previous blog articles discussed the issue of correlation and causation. It is not enough to consider that these side effects are correlated with the use of shoulder pain pumps. There is further scientific research that demonstrates the link between the use of shoulder pain pumps and the deterioration of cartilage.
