noisy shower pipes

Whenever I turn on/off (especially when turning off) any of my faucets, shower, or tubs (hot or cold) in my bathroom the pipes in my shower walls sound like they shake to the point that they make 3-4 loud bangs. I have cpvc pipes. Does anybody know what this is and any suggestions for remedies? Thanks.

Check for loose washers on the bottom of the stems, also test pressure on the house, 80 psi or higher is too high.
