Why does my shoulder pop every time i rotate it backwards? I play lacrosse and field hockey, could I have done something to it to be causing this?

In brief: Pop painful?

If the 'pop' u are describing is painful or associated w/ a feeling of 'looseness' or instability than this is signifigant and warrants an orthopedic exam. If it is not painful and occurs in other joints i would'nt worry much about it.
Painful popping @ young age could be caused by several different things... Tell your parent(s)and see md.
