If you lift anything with your arm, the force is pressing in the wrong direction. The rotator cuff group of muscles are designed to keep the ball in the upper part of the upper arm onto the plate or socket that appears on the outer edge of the shoulder blade. These muscles sit tightly around the shoulder forming a cuff of muscle that stabilises the joint. They are all connected to the shoulder blade at one end and the upper arm at each other, and each takes a different route between them depending on which edge of the shoulder they control.

FAQ’s: What can cause my right shoulder to start to pop, after I had two surgeries on my left one?I have been in therapy for about a year now due to a rotator cuff infringement and bicep tendonitis. I just recently had surgery, again, on my left shoulder for the tendonitis. After about three weeks healing I started therapy again, and now my right shoulder has violent popping when I lift it at about a 45 degree angle. It is such a hard pop that it noticably jerks my shoulder. It only hurts depending on the position I am in when it pops. If anyone has been through this and can give me an idea of what is wrong and how I can fix it, please help.
