A shoulder pain pump is surgically inserted into the shoulder so that after surgery, it can deliver regular doses of pain relieving medication. 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 disrupt sleep. The pain can also make sitting, standing or lying down uncomfortable. PAGCL also deteriorates the shoulder's cartilage. The only remedy 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.

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD/TMJ) refers to a medical problem involving the jaw joint. The temporomandibular joint connects the lower jaw to the skull in front of the ear. Certain facial muscles control the chewing motion. Problems in this area may cause headaches and neck pain. A jaw can become locked or difficult to open, or make a popping or clicking sound when a person attempts to open or close his jaw. TMD is often a source of chronic pain.

The temporomandibular joint is composed of muscles, blood vessels, nerves and bones. There are two temporomandibular joints, one on each side of your jaw. The jawbone, controlled by the temporomandibular joints, has a hinge action and a gliding action. Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) can be caused by trauma, disease, aging or habitual actions, such as teeth grinding or clenching. The jaw, like other joints in the human body, can develop arthritis.
