Know the Warning Signs Allofusexperienceoccasionalachesandpainsfromdoingtoomuch,whichdoes not necessarily mean a chronic problem is emerging. However, when those pains don’t go away, or when the uncomfortable feelings have certain characteristics,

it’s important not to ignore them, and seek help. If you keep experiencing shoulder clicking or “popping,” for example, it may indicate a more serious problem in the shoulder area. Sharp pain should also be checked out with your physical therapist, as this means the shoulder joint is not moving in good alignment. There are also more easily-ignored symptoms, like a dull painthatrunsalongthesideofyourarm,orsuddenarmweaknesswhenever you try to carry something or reach for an object. These symptoms, you should definitely not ignore.
