The Muscles of the Shoulder

(1) Deltoid: The deltoid is a large, three - headed, thick, triangular muscle which originates from the clavicle and the scapula at the rear of the shoulder and extends down to its insertion in the upper arm.

Function: To rotate and lift the arm. The anterior deltoid lifts the arm to the front; the medial deltoid lifts the arm to the side; the posterior deltoid lifts the arm to the rear.

Note: See Also the Trapezius Muscles
