Rotator Cuff Clicking

rotator cuff clickingPart of the aging process involves your muscles and joints not working as they once did when you were younger.  It may be hard to accept but it’s simply a fact of life!  I’m even guilty of it and have not hit the 40 mark yet.  But I can tell you that my body does not function like a well oiled machine that it was when I was in my twenties.

Many individuals as they age complain that their joints click or pop more often, regardless of whether their shoulder joint is under load or not.  To be more specific, what does it mean when your rotator cuff starts to make a clicking noise?

Not many rotator cuff sufferers know that their rotator cuff is actually a muscle and not a joint.  It is actually quite common for people to make reference to their shoulder joint as their rotator cuff and vice versa.  This leads to many myths, half truths and confusion about exactly what type of shoulder injury people really have.

To go one step further, the clicking noise that you hear when you rotator your arm, raise your arm out in front of you, out to the side or above your head can sometimes simply be trapped nitrogen gas in your shoulder joint.  As mentioned earlier, your rotator cuff is made up of 4 muscles and muscles don’t make a clicking noise, muscles slide and are full of blood.

But if you have shoulder pain and have more of a grinding noise when you rotator your arm, raise it out to your side, in front of you or overhead and your pain gets worse as the day goes on, then there is a good chance that you have a rotator cuff injury.

To take this one step further, can you relate to any of the following rotator cuff symptoms:

  1. Are you unable to get a solid nights sleep without worrying about rolling onto your injured shoulder, or does your injured shoulder keep you up at night?
  2. Are you able to put on your jacket with assistance from others or without shoulder pain?
  3. Are items which are placed on a high shelf difficult for you to retrieve?
  4. Is it easy for you to reach around and take your wallet, cell phone or any other item from your pants pocket without shoulder discomfort and pain?

Answering “yes” to any or all of the above questions should leave little doubt in your mind about whether the clicking noise plus the above symptoms is indicative of a rotator cuff injury, which is not something that you should simply shrug off.  Ignoring an injury such as this can make this shoulder injury significantly worse and only increase the length of time it will take you to recover and heal fully.
