Shoulderblade is an unincorporated community located in Breathitt County, Kentucky, United States.

It is reportedly named after a creek, a tributary of the Middle Fork of the Kentucky River. The creek was in turn named for a bone of very large animal once discovered on its banks. The community is also referred to as Juan, named after the Battle of San Juan Hill.
