Scapula & Clavicle Articulations Abduction (Protraction)

Abduction (Protraction)

Forward movement away the midline of the body; moving the scapula away from the spine during prostration of the shoulder girdle. Typically accompanies Shoulder Internal Rotation, Transverse Adduction, and Tranverse Flexion.


Scapula & Clavicle Articulations Adduction (Retraction)

Adduction (Retraction)

Backward movement toward the midline of the body; moving the scapula back toward the spine during retraction of the shoulder girdle. Typically accompanies Shoulder External Rotation, Transverse Abduction, and Tranverse Extension.


Scapula & Clavicle Articulations Depression

Depression

Inferior movement of the shoulder girdle; moving the scapula down. Typically accompanies Shoulder Extension.


Scapula & Clavicle Articulations Elevation

Elevation

Superior movement of the shoulder girdle; moving the scapula up. Typically accompanies Shoulder Flexion. Scaption denotes scapular plane elevation.


Scapula & Clavicle Articulations Upward Rotation (Superior Rotation)

Upward Rotation (Superior Rotation)

Rotary movement of the scapula; moving inferior angle of scapula laterally and upward. Typically accompanies Shoulder Abduction or Flexion. See Scapulohumeral Rythm.


Scapula & Clavicle Articulations Downward Rotation (Inferior Rotation)

Downward Rotation (Inferior Rotation)

Rotary movement of the scapula; moving inferior angle of scapula medially and downward. Typically accompanies Shoulder Adduction or Extension.
