Levator scapula -history function structure and origin

The Levator scapulae are the Axio-appenducular posterior muscle that connects the upper
limb to the vertebral column and lies in the posterior triangle of the neck. The upper part of
the levator scapulae is covered by the sternocleidomastoid, and its lower part is the
trapezius.

posterior body tissues. Functionally, however, it is considered to be the muscle of the main
movement and the rhomboids, the serratus anterior, the serratus posterior upper and lower

vertebrae C1-C4 to the medial border of the scapula. read more
