A 21-year-old female asked:

When i massage, my shoulder joint clicks every 5 mins, is this something to worry about?

Depends: If the clicking is associated with pain, then you should visit your doctor. If there is no pain, then you should be ok, now, this may be a sign of minor instability of your shoulder joint. Hope this helps.
