Thread: Shoulder Problem
01-22-2002, 03:08 PM #1
When I played football in college I regularly experienced what our trainer called "burners" or "stingers". It generally happened when I tried to hand block another player that was outside of my torso. I'd experience a burning sensation and my arm would go limp. I'd take 2 or 3 plays off and then I'd be fine - relatively.
My trainer told me it had to do with weak rotator cuffs and put me on a program to strengthen them - mostly dumbell raises with light weight to the front and side.
Let's skip forward 10 years to present day. I generally don't have any shoulder problems at all. However, I just added dumbell flyes to my chest routine and whenever I bring the dumbells down, my left shoulder "clicks". It makes a loud snapping or clicking noise. It doesn't hurt but it is disconcerting, especially when I think that it may be my shoulder being torn away from my body.
Does anyone know what is happening? How concerned should I be?
Thanks in advance...

Is it more of a distinctive click or grinding noise? The grinding is called crepitus which just happens with age. There is a very detailed explanation I won't bore you with, just age. I have the same problem with my knees and I just deal with it. I feel some fullness in the joint post leg workout but there isn't a lot I can do other than non-steroidals, i.e. Motrin, etc.

Whats up bad man, welcome to the board. I have the same problem bro, i asked my chiropracter about it and he told me that as long as it wasnt giving me any discomfort or pain that its fairly normal. If it starts to hurt, even a little, go talk to a chiropracter.

Bravo, it's definitely a click, not a griniding noise, but thanks for the info.
Vet, thanks. Since it doesn't hurt I won't worry about it.
