In many, many ways our hands are what separate us from lower life forms. Our hands, when used in conjunction with the boundless imagination and creativity that pours forth from our minds, enable us to create tools, art, and virtually everything that makes humans unique.

As the world becomes increasingly dependent on technology, our hands are becoming ever more important in our ability to communicate.

If you’ve been waking up with a strange sensation in your hands, such as numbness, tingling, or burning—you might be in the first stages of carpal tunnel syndrome. This condition occurs when a nerve in the wrist of one or both hands becomes compressed, which over time weakens the muscles and causes feelings of numbness.

There may be some pain and discomfort, but the biggest indicator that carpal tunnel is present is a regular feeling of the hand “falling asleep.” If left too long, carpal tunnel can cause permanent damage to the hand, making bending the thumb and index fingers difficult. The causes of this condition are largely attributed to genetic factors; however, some studies point to work-related activities as culprits.

Patients undergoing shoulder surgery may be implanted with a shoulder pain pump to manage post-surgical pain. The shoulder pain pump delivers regular doses of pain relieving medication into the shoulder joint. Unfortunately however, research has shown that some pain pumps that deliver pain medication directly to the shoulder joint by a catheter can cause a painful condition known as Chondrolysis (PAGCL).

PAGCL causes excruciating pain that can make everyday activities such as combing or brushing teeth difficult. The pain can even make sitting, standing or lying down uncomfortable. PAGCL also deteriorates the shoulder's cartilage. The only treatment for relief from PAGCL may be shoulder replacement surgery. Some of the shoulder pain pumps found to be defective were made by Stryker, I-Flow and DonJoy corporations.
