Abstract The objective of this study was to assess the prevalence of different shoulder disorders likely to be experienced by a rheumatologist in a community-based rheumatology clinic. We assessed patients with shoulder pain presenting to a large general practice at a community-based rheumatology clinic. It was found that the more common conditions seen were rotator cuff lesions (65\%), pericapsular soft tissue pain (11\%), acromioclavicular joint pain (10\%) and referred pain from cervical spine (5\%). In conclusion this study has established the spectrum of shoulder disorders referred from general practice to a highly accessible community-based rheumatology clinic. The diagnostic processes to distinguish the different conditions rely chiefly on an accurate history and directed examination.
