    Pretty paranoid about possible shoulder injury/labral tear, could someone please offe

    Long story short, I arm wrestled and stupidly held a bad position for a long time. I felt no pain afterwards, however days after I noticed my right shoulder was clicking deeply when I rolled my shoulder, thankfully no pain. I took some time off, and went back to working out, and was just as strong as before, still no pain, but the clicking never went away. That's when I decided to take a week off and just do shoulder rehab/stretches

    Today, I worked out again after a week, and my shoulder is still clicking just as much, if not more than before. There's no pain, and when I start to workout the clicking goes away.

    Let me also state it's not just a light click, it's a deep click, like when a knuckle feels tight until it's cracked. Sometimes it's there and other times it seems to be gone.

    I'm just paranoid as hell at this point on what I could have possibly did. I decided I will keep working out if I get no pain and include lots of stretches/RC workouts, but can anyone offer wisdom if this sounds like anything bad?

    In general painless clicking is not a problem.

    Arm wrestling is very dangerous if you don't know what you are doing. Main reason I don't arm wrestle anyone ever. Risk to reward ratio is incredibly high.

    Since there isn't pain, I wouldn't be overly concerned, but the only real way to know what's going on is to see a shoulder specialist.

    Athlean-X has a lot of free youtube videos dealing with preventing and rehabbing shoulder issues. Here's one about treating cracking. May or may not apply/help.

    It doesn't sound horrible if it's not painful and doesn't affect your lifts, but since you seem to know the origin and are only 22 you should see a doctor (orthopedic specialist preferably). You don't want a little thing that could be addressed now to get worse or give out at the wrong time.

    When you get older, things sometimes start to click on their own and you don't think twice about it.

    Did you at least win at arm wrestling?

    There is 2 clicking sound coming from the join, the one is pressure in the joint which has to came out and making this snapping sound and the other one is tendons snapping over the bone. In your case, if this clicking sound didnt happen before, and get more intense lately it probably means u have muscle imbalance and your joint is kind of misalignment. People offtenly dont work their rear delt so I would recommend you to strenghten rear delts and also rotator cuff cause if they are weak compare to delts, it can happen as well. I would also recommend you to do some exercise for scapula control and increase both - internal and external rotation of the shoulder.
