    For a few months now, I have been able to “pop” my left shoulder when I horizontally abduct my arm with a fully flexed elbow. It doesn’t hurt when it pops out, but I can feel and see it popping. I also recently began doing light weight lifting and I feel some pain and tightness in the posterior shoulder when I shoulder press. I don’t have any previous trauma to that shoulder. What are some things that I can do to determine what the problem is. Maybe the problem is a tight tricep since the popping only occurs when the elbow is maximally flexed (i.e. stretched triceps). Thanks for the help!

    I think consult with your doctor and start physiotherapy treatment.

    You might be suffering from shoulder instability. Get it checked from an orthopedic doctor. One of my friends got his treatment for shoulder instability from one of the doctors at OrthoTexas. He is able to do his chores normally after the treatment.

    I would start rotator cuff strengthening and consult an orthopedist, sounds like significant instability. When you horizontally abduct your arm it stressed the anterior capsule and labrum which are obviously unstable.
