Understanding Shoulder Clicking and Popping:

During weight training or other physical activities, it’s not uncommon to experience clicking and popping sensations in the shoulder. While these sounds may not necessarily indicate a serious problem, it is crucial to investigate their cause to prevent potential injury or complications.

Importance of Seeking Shoulder Consultation:

When you encounter clicking and popping in your shoulder, it is highly recommended to schedule a consultation with a healthcare professional, such as a Physical Therapist. Here’s why:

Movement Assessment: Our Physical Therapist will conduct a movement assessment to evaluate your form and technique during that particular motion that has symptoms. This assessment ensures that you are performing movements correctly, activating the appropriate muscles, and maximizing the efficiency of your workout while minimizing stress on your joints.

Injury Prevention: Identifying the root cause allows you to modify your exercise technique or routine to avoid aggravating the condition and minimize the risk of future injuries. Consulting a Physical Therapist helps you make informed decisions regarding your fitness regimen.
