Why does my right shoulder click when I lift weights?
Crepitus is a common sound that can occur when you lift weights. It’s often related to joint damage or tiny bubbles formed in the fluid around the joint.

Be sure to keep your shoulders warm when exercising as this can also contribute to neck pain in some cases- avoid overusing your neck muscles when trying to reduce click sounds in shoulders. Prevention is key- take simple measures such as wearing supportive clothing whenever possible and avoiding activities that could lead to an injury

Frequently Asked Questions
What causes a clicking shoulder?
The most common reason for this painful “clicking, popping, catching/snapping” in the shoulder due to the biceps tendon is because of a subluxation.
Why does my shoulder clunk?
When the arm is placed in certain positions, the bones within the shoulder joint may slip or ‘subluxation’. This is a clunking sensation as the bones within the shoulder joint move excessively on one another. This clunking can sometimes cause a pain deep within the shoulder.
Is shoulder popping normal?
If you’re experiencing shoulder popping, it’s likely that there are pockets of gas inside the joint. Release these pockets of gas by moving your arm around. This can also help to relieve any pain from the condition.
Why does my shoulder pop but no pain?
If you have shoulder popping, but no pain, it may be due to instability. A loose ligament or tendon can cause the shoulder to move too far forward or backward and this can lead to discomfort. If you experience persistent shoulder popping even after trying a number of strategies such as ice, rest, and stretching your muscles, then there is a good chance that your rotator cuff tendons are injured.
Why do my shoulders sound like Rice Krispies?
Crepitus. Feeling a crunching or hearing a popping sound when rotating the shoulder may be a sign that cartilage has worn away and is not protecting the bones from friction. The medical term for this symptom is “crepitus.”
Why do muscle knots feel crunchy?
Muscle knots feel crunchy because they are caused by the tight and constricted connective tissue that covers all our muscles.
Can a rotator cuff tear heal itself?
The most common symptoms include weakness in the shoulder muscles, limited mobility of the joint, and pain with movement. The best answer we can provide is the following: No, rotator cuff tears cannot heal themselves. If you experience any further symptoms after surgery or if your injury doesn’t improve within a few weeks, please see your doctor for more treatment options.
How do you self check for rotator cuff injury?
In this test you begin by placing the injured arm behind your back, with the back of your hand resting on you lower back. Now try to lift your arm off of your back.. If you feel pain or weakness when trying to lift your hand off of your back, that is a sign that there could potentially be rotator cuff injury involved.
Can you tear your rotator cuff bench press?
A torn rotator cuff is a serious injury caused by overloading weights and it needs immediate help from a medical professional. We often treat injuries to the pectoralis major muscles (pecs) that get overloaded during bench pressing.
The shoulder joint is located at the top of your arm and it consists of two bones – the scapula (shoulder blade) and the humerus. When you bench press, you use your muscles in your shoulders to move a weight overhead. The rotator cuff muscles attach to these bones and when they’re working properly, they create a smooth movement. However, if there’s something wrong with one or more of these muscles, that can lead to clicking sounds when you bench press.
In this case, it seems like either the bicep muscle or the rotator cuff muscle is not doing its job properly and as a result, there’s friction between those two tissues which creates that clicking sound. If you notice any clicking noises when you bench press and they’re getting worse over time, it might be worth seeing an expert for further assessment.
