Default Poll: Do your shoulders crack/crunch EVERY time you rotate em?

Its weird, before sometimes my shoulders would crack when i rotated them... sounds like bone rubbing against bone.

then one morning i woke up in a really really weird position. my shoulder just felt weird. so i tried moving my arm, but suddenly it felt like my shoulder was getting ripped somewhere, so i stopped, went back the other way and rolled over. since then that shoulder makes kind of crunching noise. i dont remember how but my other shoulder started doing the same.

so im curious if its anything i should worry about. it doesnt happen with my normal range of movement, just when i rotate my elbow over my shoulder

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. They did a lot before I started working out, but now there's quite a bit looser.

Every joint in my body creaks and pops when I twist it. I can FEEL the tendons and cartilage snapping and rubbing.

That doesn't mean it's supposed to do that of course. :-) I'm only 29, but I ache and creak like I'm 70.

Talk to your doctor. It's probably nothing serious, but it can't hurt to ask.

My shoulders almost always crack before my incline press and military press days. Beyond that, it's jujst a matter of coincidence and luck.

Shoulders? No.
Knees? Yes, they crack every time I kneel down for any reason.
I can also crack my wrists repeatedly.

My shoulders do, my wrists do, my ankles do and my big toes click every time I wiggle them. My knees, elbows and hips crack on occasion.

They've all done this since I was in my 20s. Genetics, I guess.

If I squat, my knees crack every time. It's pretty gross.

Default Poll: Do your shoulders crack/crunch EVERY time you rotate em?

On the subject of popping and cracking joints, just to head off any myths and old wifes tales:

Q. Does cracking your knuckles cause damage or arthritis?

A. The idea that knuckle cracking promotes arthritis was brought to you by the same old wives who warned that eyes can stay crossed and palms can grow hairy. No, there is no evidence that cracking your knuckles causes arthritis.

When you bend or pull your fingers, you stretch the lubricant between joints called synovial fluid. In a process known as ?cavitation,? bubbles form in the fluid and then burst. There is some relief and increased mobility when the bubbles make that satisfying pop, which helps explain the compulsion to do it again.

Damage other than arthritis is possible but unconfirmed. You could overextend the ligaments, like a baseball pitcher with a bad elbow, and you may lose some grip strength. Other than that, the biggest threat is from the people you are driving insane.
