From the outreach to the center of the uplift, there is pain, often called "pain arc", which is less than this angle or greater than this scale. The supraspinatus muscle is completely disconnected, and the amplitude of active abduction is less than 400. If the inspector does not actively extend the upper arm to more than 400, the patient can complete the active abduction action.
