Carly asked the Guru about her ‘popping’ Shoulder

Apr 03rd, 2014

I am able to ‘pop’ my shoulder around the joint (it is not painful) and also both my shoulders crack quite loudly when pressure is put on them.

Could thishave some long term damage even though there is no pain at the moment?

I have never dislocated a shoulder, it just happened one day!

The Guru Responded:

Hi Carly

Thankfully there has been some recent research that says that cracking fingers will not predispose you to arthritic change in later life.

Fingers aren’t shoulder, but as long as it’s not painful and you’re not doing it with gusto I don’t think I’d worry.

If it’s painful or feels like its going to dislocate, then I would!

….really sorry for the delay
