Shoulder pain pumps are commonly used after arthroscopic shoulder surgery. Unlike other pain pumps, which are also used after various surgeries, shoulder pain pumps have been linked to serious side effects.
Patients using shoulder pain pumps after surgery have a very high rate of developing PAGCL, a permanent condition involving constant pain, popping, and clicking in the shoulder. PAGCL also results in decreased shoulder movement and range in motion.
The only proven connection between the development of PAGCL and shoulder surgeries is the use of shoulder pain pumps. Unfortunately, the damage caused by these pumps is often irreversible or requires extensive surgery.
A study published in the July issue of the American Journal of Sports Medicine linked the use of shoulder pain pumps directly to PAGCL.
PAGCL, or posarthroscopic glenohumeral chondrolysis, is a painful condition which permanently damages a person’s shoulder and range in motion.
The study, found here, included 177 shoulders. Of these only 19 people underwent arthroscopic surgery and had an intra-articular pain pump. of these 19 people 12 have developed PAGCL.
These shocking results clearly show the dangers of using a shoulder pain pump after arthroscopic shoulder surgery. Shoulder pain pumps frequently result in PAGCL, a condition which requires additional painful surgeries.
The only common link between patients having arthroscopic shoulder surgery and then developing PAGCL is the use of a shoulder pain pump after surgery. Shoulder pain management pumps are commonly used after shoulder surgeries to reduce pain, but come with irreversible side effects.
The tight joint space and medication combination cause the eventual deterioration of cartilage in shoulder pain pump users. Shoulder pain pump side effects typically do not appear immediately, rather side effects appear months after surgery when the patient should be completely healed.
Patients using a shoulder pain pump may discover they are not recovering at a normal pace. Other shoulder pain pump side effects then occur, including popping, grinding, and continuous pain. These side effects may be caused by the condition PAGCL – a condition which results in the deterioration of shoulder cartilage and sometimes bone.
The use of Shoulder Pain Pumps after arthroscopic shoulder surgeries has been linked to the development of an extremely uncomfortable shoulder condition called PAGCL. PAGCL (Postarthroscopic Glenohumeral Chondrolysis) is a condition which occurs when shoulder cartilage begins to deteriorate.
Shoulder pain pumps cause cartlidge deterioration, and therefore cause PAGCL. While the use of pain pumps in other forms of surgery has been successful, the tight joint area of the shoulder and medication combination of the shoulder pain pump has proven ineffective and dangerous.
