Thanks for the feedback!
You can't have one muscle that both elevates AND depresses a bone. So your question is a little confusing, Upward rotation: Serratus anterior, Upper and lower fibers of tra…pezius Retraction (adduction): Middle fibers of trapezius, rhomboid major and minor Elevation: Upper fibers of trapezius, levator scapulae, rhomboid major and minor Depression: Lower fibers of trapezius Let me know if I left any out but this should be all of them! Trevor .............................. the above answer is incomplete........ The trapezius is antagonist to itself, in that it can both elevate and depress the scapula
Muscles are not jointed, though the bones they attach to may be. For example, your biceps muscle attaches to both your scapula (shoulder blade) and radius (one of the forea…rm bones). Contracting the muscle causes the elbow joint to bend.
rhomboids and middle trapezius
The Rhomboideus major and minor. With trapezius assisting.
The scapulothoracic joint is not a true joint in the sense in that it has no capsule or ligamentous attachments. It is more precisely identified as the scapulothoracic articul…ation. It is formed between the anterior scapula and the posterior thoracic rib cage(ribs 2-7). The scapula's attachment to the axial skeleton in a healthy shoulder is purely musculotendinous in nature, formed by the trapezius and serratus muscles. Its gliding movement patterns consist of elevation/depression, retraction/protraction, and superior/inferior rotation. However, fibrous adhesions can sometimes occur following a shoulder injury, particularly if the joint has been immobilized for a long period of time. This severely impairs the movement of the shoulder, particularly with abduction past 90 degrees.
No, the scapulothoracic joint is not a true synovial joint because the scapula is attached to the trunk by muscle only. The only true articulation with the trunk is indirectly… through the clavicle.
styloglossus: retracts the tongue, elevates side
Flexors and extensors, along with tendons and ligaments.
Retraction= Middle trapezius Elevation= Upper trapezius
the muscle is used when you eat to much crispey skin chicken from the tea house and you jam tart out self lol :P
When the joint is bent the muscle gets hard and the bottom relaxes.
In performing any given movements such as bending the leg at the knee joint the muscles performing actual movement are called the prime movers or?
Rhomboideus major and rhomboideus minor inserted at the medial border of the scapula, supplied by dorsal scapular nerve (c5) retracts and elevates the scapula. these are also …called as tha brassiers of the scapula.
