Popping and clicking in shoulder is a common occurrence that can occur intermittently throughout the day or during workouts. What is the pop? It depends on how it feels during and after. If it feels like a pop like when you pop your neck/back, it could be gas being released from the blood. HOWEVER, this could also be a relieving sensation caused from possibly gas creating more space in our joint or just purely a psychological reaction. Essentially, the evidence shows we don’t really have a great idea what’s happening when you get a pop or a click. The majority of the time, it does not mean anything. With that said, if it feels like a clunk and you notice your joint feels loose and moves to and from a different position, it could be the joint subluxing or dislocating; you should consult your PT or MD, as this could be a more serious condition. At the end of the day, popping and clicking in your shoulder is normal. Unless it comes with pain, a sensation of the joint getting stuck or caught, or increases in frequency over time, it should not be a concern. BUT if any of those conditions do arise that coincides with the popping or clicking, then schedule an evaluation with your Doctor of Physical Therapy (hey, that’s us!).
