What are the rotator cuff muscles? Supraspinatus, infraspinatus, Teres minor, subscapularis
Supraspinatus - origin supraspinous fossa
supraspinatus - action abduction, some lateral rotation, stabilization
supraspinatus - innervation suprascapular
supraspinatus - insertion greater tubercule of the humerus
infraspinatus - origin infrapsinous fossa
infraspinatus - insertion greater tubercle of humerus
infraspinatus - action lateral rotation, extension of humerus
infraspinatus - innervation suprascapular
teres minor - origin upper 2/3 border of scapula
teres minor - insertion greater tubercle
teres minor - action lateral rotation, horizontal abduction, extension of the humerus
teres minor - innervation axillary
subscapularis - origin subscapular fossa
subscapularis - insertion lesser tubercle of humerus
subscapularis - action medial rotation, adduction of humerus
subscapularis - innervation upper and lower supscapular
levator scapula - origin transverse process of C1 - C4
Levator scapula - insertion vertebral border of scapula - superior angle
