The painful arc is one of the easiest yet most indicative tests we do to screen for shoulder issues. Watch as Jack talks you through the process.
1๏ธโƒฃ Stand in front of a mirror
2๏ธโƒฃ Raise your arm out to the side with your elbow straight, aiming to get it alongside your ear
3๏ธโƒฃ Note the angle at which you feel any pain, discomfort or stiffness in the shoulder region
4๏ธโƒฃ If itโ€™s between 90 and 120 degrees, itโ€™s a positive painful arc test which could be an indicator of:
๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป Shoulder joint impingement
๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป Rotator cuff issues
๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป Frozen shoulder
๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป or a range of other shoulder issues
If youโ€™re getting shoulder problems, you know who to call.
