A:

If you’re experiencing joint pain and stiffness, start with a visit to your primary care practitioner. They can provide an initial diagnosis, but may need to refer you to a rheumatologist. Rheumatologists specialize in arthritis and diseases of the bones, muscles, and joints. They can make an accurate diagnosis and recommend treatment.
