Lately I've noticed that my shoulder 'clicks' when I'm doing stuff like pushups, bench presses... even throwing a ball (I think that's why I've always thrown sidearm but never knew why...).

Any idea what I should do? Like do you think this would be a cause for concern? I'm not really in a position where I can see a physiotherapist right away, but I'm kinda afraid if I go about my daily activities I might injure the shoulder.

thanks

Go to your family doctor then? Something unnatural shouldn't be right.

your shoulder joints are probably just... idk the word for it, bad? i got the same in my elbows and my knees. they just crack all the time.

i recommend you stretch your shoulders a lot more before activity. rotate the joint by swinging your arm like you're pitching a softball, and maybe hold a 5-10 weight plate while doing it.

if there's pain when it clicks though i suggest you see your physicist.

does it hurt? or just click?
I've got fucked up shoulders that have both dislocated a few times. They click when in certain positions and sometimes at the gym. The worst is swimming or hitting a ball, movements that use the rotator cuffs a lot.

Stretching is a great idea prior to activities.

confused Why would seeing a Physics professor help? I think you mean a physician. To the original poster the problem may be joint lubrication I used to have a similar "problem" just make sure you get regular physical activity and make sure your diet is balanced. Try going to the drug store and picking up some connective tissure lubricants like alpha glucosamine or chondroitin. If that doesn't work then try to see a physical therapist if possible or your family doctor, hope that helps.

I had the same a few years back, clicking. Didn't think much of it until it was too late. I had surgery last year for bone on bone grinding. Surgery is a same day procedure so you get to go home the same day. Some physical therapy was involved for the next 3 months. The pain before surgery was unbareable so doc gave me vicodin, after the surgery I was taking percocet and got addicted to the shit.

I would suggest you go see your primary physician and have him direct you to a specialist.

good luck

Mine clicks on random occassions.

If you're working out, it's best to stop and give it a break for the night.
That's your bones rubbing against each other. Not good.
Mine comes and goes, but if yours happens on a regular basis, the best thing you can do is to get it checked.

As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.
