Popping elbow with spins?

    So on my right elbow, I noticed a sudden popping sound and it seems to have gotten worse now because I can feel it. It isn't painful but it started out of no where and only seems to happen when I am doing spins with my saber. Could I have hurt something/pulled something or what? I never had this before so I am a bit confused.
     
  2. Sounds like you're doing the spins wrong. Try spinning the saber with your wrist alone while keeping your elbow straight for a while, then include the elbow in the movement again. Wrong movement-patterns can lead to some serious problems over time. Better to correct them as soon as possible.

    ^ Whats I was going to say.

    I know someone who used to have this issue when juggling. He did it all the time but it always clicked his one shoulder. He ended up with arthritis and he is only 24.

    There is a bone that connects the ring and middle finger to the wrist, and then to the elbow. The nerve that runs along this can get damaged eventually if you are not careful.
    I would pay attention to what you are doing with your wrist and fingers. If it seems normal, pay attention to your shoulder.
