I have been experiencing clucking joints whenever I am doing exercise, mainly on the deltoids during dumbell lateral raising, and on the lumbar bones during lifting my thighs on flat mat.

Is this a normal condition as it keeps on clucking as I do not feel any particular pain or injury during my workout.

Don't Sweat Creaking Joints Until They Hurt

6-08-98
University Park, Pa. -- The snap, crackle and pop of moving body parts usually don't signal an injury unless accompanied by pain, notes the June issue of the Penn State Sports Medicine Newsletter.

"We shouldn't worry too much about sounds made by movement around a joint," says Andrew Cosgarea, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon and assistant director of sports medicine at Johns Hopkins University. "Painless noise is normal. It could be caused by irregular surfaces rubbing against each other, pressure changes around a joint or two ligaments coming into contact."

The only time for concern is when pain goes along with the sound," he adds.

The familiar creaking and cracking noise, known in medical circles as crepitus, usually goes away or is not as noticeable with exercise



The takeaway: If it doesn't hurt, don't sweat it

I get joints that pop now and then....age, looseness of ligaments, tightness of joint fit, amount of weights, range of motion, all play a part in that.

Just warm up a bit more and if it dont hurt when you lift, dont worry about it.
