What muscles attach to the coracoid?
Accordingly, what muscles attach to the acromion?
Two major muscles, the deltoid and trapezius, attach to the acromion. The deltoid, which abducts the arm at the shoulder, forms its origin along the acromion, the spine of the scapula, and the clavicle. From these origins, it crosses the shoulder joint and inserts on the deltoid tuberosity of the humerus.
Additionally, which muscles attach to the scapula? The scapula articulates with the humerus at the glenoid fossa and the clavicle at the acromion process. The scapula provides attachment sites for many muscles including the pectoralis minor, coracobrachialis, serratus anterior, triceps brachii, biceps brachii, and the subscapularis.
Furthermore, what does the coracoid process articulate with?
The coracoid process articulates with the humerus (upper-arm) and clavicle ('collar') bones. The coracoid process forms a point of attachment to several muscles, specifically the short head of biceps, the coraco brachialis, the pectoralis minor and also the the *costo-coracoid and *conoid ligaments.
What does the acromion process feel like?
The articulation connection lets two bones move together, which is exactly how our acromion process and our clavicle work in tandem. The acromion process is the part of our shoulder blade, or scapula, that you can feel sticking up if you rub where the back of your shoulder meets your arm.
