With a clunking shoulder the Guru advises Christine to get better control of her shoulder muscles

Apr 27th, 2015


I was involved in a car accident several months ago and have been dealing
with a lot of neck / upper body stiffness and pain.  My right shoulder is
always tight and still unable to lift above my head.

I’ve been working with a kinesiologist and doing a lot of strengthening and stretching
but I’m having alot of shoulder clunking and crackling with movement especially when
raising arm up.  Its hard to tell if my flare-ups are related.

Any help is much appreciated.

The Guru Responded:

Hi Christine


Not sure I get your drift. You have flare ups of pain or less movement or stiffness or clunking?


More info please.

Christine replies:

Just wondering if i should be concerned about my shoulder clunking.  I dont have pain with the clunking but i have pain stiffness and pain after doing exercise.  Meaning flareups.


The Guru:



Clicking or clunking without pain is not a problem. Pain with, maybe!


The stiffness is most likely to be due to a chronic, ongoing inflammatory process – you need to deal with this part by getting better control of (not just exercising) your muscles around your shoulder.


Good luck
