What is Painful Arc Syndrome?

A condition in which there is pain in the shoulder joint when the sufferer raises an arm sideways. At first the movement is painless, but as the arm gets further from the side, increasing pain is felt. This painful 'arc' of movement limits the sufferer's use of the shoulder. This symptom may arise in frozen shoulder or rotator cuff lesions.
