Who Is a Shoulder Specialist?

A shoulder specialist is a medical professional who focuses exclusively on diagnosing and treating conditions affecting the shoulder. This intricate joint, which functions through a complex interplay of bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons, is highly mobile and inherently unstable, making it prone to injuries. Through extensive training and experience, a shoulder specialist has gained a unique understanding of these complexities, allowing him or her to help each patient find the optimal treatment plan.

When should you see a shoulder specialist?

Shoulder pain can occur for many reasons, such as repetitive use, arthritis and sports-related injuries. Because an accurate diagnosis is the key to finding effective relief, the following symptoms should be promptly discussed with a shoulder specialist:

  • Sudden, intense shoulder pain
  • Pain that radiates from the shoulder to the elbow
  • Persistent shoulder stiffness
  • A grinding sensation when moving the shoulder
  • Difficulty moving the shoulder or arm
  • Arm muscle weakness
