I am reasonably fit and active though can click literally every joint in my body. My back is the worst and when i twist nearly every vertabrae (spelling! sorry) clicks! Also when i lift my arms my shoulders click. Slightly worrying as only 20 years old. any ideas? My neck is also not great and when i tilt it it seems to grind!

  • I have the same problem and my doctor said don't worry about the clicking. It happens when I lift my arms too. My doctor said that when I exercise don't lift my arms over my head. Don't lift them past the shoulders. That's why I started a low impact step class. They swing their arms, I pump them in front of me (up and down). Don't swing you arms alot. Also, I have bene getting adjustments from an osteopath (spelling??). They are gentler then a chiropractor. I use to do high impact aerobics and overused my muscles and bones. I was at a point in my life that I could not lift my leg, turn my neck. Low impact is your best bet. I hope this helps.

  • Are you hyper mobile in your joints? By this I mean are you bendy or flexible more so than the average person? I click in quite a few areas of my body as I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome type III, where I am double jointed or hyper mobile in the joints.Hear from you soon,Agape,searchingsam
