My shoulders (both right and left) click during various movements. If I move my right arm as if I am doing a dumbbell lateral raise, it clicks pretty hard. In other cases, when I am doing bench press my left shoulder clicks. I recently went to a shoulder orthopedic specialist and he said that since my rotator cuff is hypertrophied (from weightlifting, I suppose) it is now causing the bursa there to impinge more against the acromion (something along those lines). He said, however, not to worry about it too much, and to not increase your frequency of weightlifting. He also said to avoid overhead movements as that is what tends to aggravate the condition. He also said I risk bursitis/tendonitis if I continue, but I avoid the majority of movements that make my shoulders click during weightlifting, namely the lateral raise.
Does this happen to other weightlifters/bodybuilders? I wouldn't consider myself even that built yet as I've only been weightlifting for 7 months...
Is there any way to reduce this condition besides stopping weightlifting? I asked the doc this and he said there wasn't ...
Thanks in advance,
