Many muscles are attached to shoulder girdle. You have trapezius, deltoid muscles attached to spine of the scapula and clavicle. Rhomboid major and minor muscles and serratus anterior muscle attached to the medial border of the scapula. You have subscapularis, supraspinatus, infraspinatus muscles attached to the inner and outer surfaces of the scapula. You have teres minor and major muscles attached to lateral border of the scapula. You have pectoralis major muscle (clavicular head) attached…
Scapula is the scientific term for shoulder blade. It provides a foundation for the attachments of the muscles that move the arm. There are many functions of the scapula. It forms part of the shoulder girdle and many (16) muscles are associated with it. The actions that the muscles have on it include: elevation (shrugging), depression (slumping), abduction, adduction, rotation, and tipping. The scapula omo (shoulder blade) is the bone which connects the humerous (arm…
Function of the Scapula The scapula is the mobile bone to which most of the shoulder muscles are attached. It is attached to the back by other muscles. It serves as a broad plate for the strong anchoring of muscles of the upper extremity. to move your arm joint flexes supinated forearm Scapula or shoulder blade is the bone that connects the humerus with the clavicle. --- from Wikipedia
that is an enormously vague and unhelpful question. there are many muscles in the body. Skeletal muscles attach to bones Smooth (invoulentary) muscles generally attatch to and originate in tissues Cardiac (heart) muscle is contained within the heart. These are the three types of muscle in the body. Some common examples: biceps brachii muscle: scapula and radius pectoralis major muscle: ribs, clavicle, sternum and humerus.
The rotator cuff muscles are referred to occasionally as the SITS muscles. The Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Teres minor and the subscapularis. The Supras. originates on the scapula and inserts on the humerus. The Infras. originates on the scapula and inserts on the humerus(greater tubercle. The Teres minor originates on the scapula and inserts on the humerus. The Subscapularis originates on the scapula and inserts on the humerus(lesser tubercle). The function of this muscle group is to…
The rhomboid muscles, often simply called the rhomboids, are rhombus-shaped muscles associated with the scapula and are chiefly responsible for its retraction. There are two rhomboid muscles: Rhomboid major muscle and Rhomboid minor muscle. They are located on the back that connects the scapula with the vertebrae of the spinal column.
