Which muscles depress the humeral head?
Likewise, what muscles depress the shoulder?
|Scapular elevation||levator scapulae, the upper fibers of the trapezius|
|Scapular depression||pectoralis minor, lower fibers of the trapezius, subclavius, latissimus dorsi|
|Arm abduction||True abduction: supraspinatus (first 15 degrees), deltoid; Upward rotation: trapezius, serratus anterior|
Beside above, what muscles lift the arm above the head? Your rotator cuff is made up of muscles and tendons that keep the ball (head) of your upper-arm bone (humerus) in your shoulder socket. It also helps you raise and rotate your arm. Each one of these muscles is part of the rotator cuff and plays an important role: Supraspinatus.
Keeping this in consideration, what muscles cause scapular depression?
The elevation is accomplished by the trapezius, levator scapulae, and rhomboid muscles. Depression is accomplished through the force of gravity and the actions of the latissimus dorsi, serratus anterior, pectoralis major and minor, and the trapezius muscles.
Where is supraspinatus pain felt?
Supraspinatus muscle. The supraspinatus muscle assists abduction of the arm and stabilization of the humerus head during arm movements. TrPs within the supraspinatus muscle elicit a referred pain felt as deep pain around the shoulder, particularly over the mid-deltoid region.
