There are many different types of movements of the shoulder joint and each movement requires the cooperation of muscles that attach to the scapula. The muscles involved are: Levator scapulae, Rhomboid Major, Rhomboid Minor, Latissimus dorsi, Trapezius, Deltoid, Supraspinatus, Infraspinatus, Teres Minor, Teres Major, and Subscapularis.
