Rhomboid major muscle

In this article we will discuss about Rhomboid major muscle. So let’s get started.

Rhomboid major

It originates from the spinous processes of T2-T5 vertebrae and supraspinous ligament and gets inserted into the medial border of scapula inferior to the rhomboid minor. It is innervated by the dorsal scapular nerve and the artery supply is through the dorsal scapular artery. It’s chief action is retraction of scapula. Clinically high intensity injury to rhomboid major muscle leads to scapular instability.
