Patient : I am an 13 year old Elite gymnast that practices 26 hours per week. So obviously I am going to be over-working my shoulder. I have been having right shoulder pain for the last 5 days. When I put my shoulder in certain positions I have sharp pains throughout my shoulder. To go along with the pain I have also nodiced that my shoulder pops. It pops when I put it up and put it to the side. Another symptom I have noticed was that my shoulder feels unstable and it feels like it is going to fall out of it's place. I have tried to stretch my shoulder out but it only causes more pain, popping and unstability. If you have an idea of a possible diagnosis that goes along with my symptoms please tell me. Thank you for your help.
