Jock Doc: A pop in shoulder can mean injury from weight-lifting

Q. I was lifting weights and felt a pop and a sharp pain in my left shoulder. I stopped lifting and didn’t any significant swelling. However, whenever I flex my arm or rotate my hand upward, I develop a sharp pain and click in the left shoulder. I have been able to work out with some light weights but have not been able to go back to my regular workout routine over the last month. Do you think this is something that can heal and when can I go back to working out?
