Because of my recent shoulder problem, here is some shoulder data...

Saturday, March 29, 2014

When I was in the doctor's office I was asking about the shoulder model. I said the shoulder is really complicated! He mentioned the many muscles attached to the scapula--so I looked them up! Chris

Name the 17 muscles that attach to the scapula:

1. Serratus Anterior
2. Supraspinatus
3. Subscapularis
4. Trapezius
5. Teres Major
6. Teres Minor
7. Triceps Brachii long head
8. Biceps Brachii
9. Rhomboid Major
10. Rhomboid Minor
11. Coracobrachialis
12. Omohyoid inferior belly
13. Lattisimus Dorsi
14. Deltoid
15. Levator Scapula
16. Infraspinatus
17. Pectoralis Minor

An easy to use mnuemonic to help memorize the 17 muscles that attach to the scapula is SSS TTTT BRR COLD LIP.

In my college bio classes we used many mneumonics to remember various facts. I never had to learn this one! chris
