Abstract

[Extract] The trapezius muscle constitutes a large portion of the upper back and neck. Associated with strength, power and tightness, the trapezoids is involved in almost all shoulder and arm movements, thus making it a lynch pin in providing mobility for everyday life and function.
The broad flat trapezious muscle resembles two half triangles either side of the spine that, when joined, take on a four sided shape or traezoid (similar tot he shape of kite). The muscle has an almost linear series of origins: starting at the occipital protuberance, down the ligamentum nuchae (band of ligament form the second cervical vertebrae through to the seventh) and along the spines of the thoracic vertebrae. The muscle then spreads to insert along the acromion process, spine of the scapula and lateral third of the clavicle.
