Muscle Attachment of Scapula/ Shoulder Blade

Muscle Attachment of Scapula/The scapula is a flat, triangular-shaped bone that is known colloquially as the “shoulder blade.” Its location is in the upper thoracic region on the dorsal surface of the rib cage. It connects with the humerus at the glenohumeral joint as well as the clavicle at the acromioclavicular joint to form the shoulder joint. In total, 17 different muscles attach to the scapula, which makes it difficult to fracture.

Scapula, also called shoulder blade, either of two large bones of the shoulder girdle invertebrates. In humans, they are triangular and lie on the upper back between the levels of the second and eighth ribs. A scapula’s posterior surface is crossed obliquely by a prominent ridge, the spine, which divides the bone into two concave areas, the supraspinous and infraspinous fossae. The spine and fossae give attachment to muscles that act in rotating the arm. The spine ends in the acromion, a process that articulates with the clavicle, or collarbone, in front and helps form the upper part of the shoulder socket. The lateral apex of the triangle is broadened and presents a shallow cavity, the glenoid cavity, which articulates with the head of the bone of the upper arm, the humerus, to form the shoulder joint. Overhanging the glenoid cavity is a beaklike projection, the coracoid process, which completes the shoulder socket. To the margins of the scapula are attached muscles that aid in moving or fixing the shoulder as demanded by movements of the upper limb.

scapula

Surfaces Of Scapula

  • Costal Surface or Subscapular Fossa – It is concave and is directed medially and forwards. It is marked by 3 longitudinal ridges. A thick ridge adjoins the lateral border. This part of the bone is almost rod-like acts a lever for the action of serratus anterior in overhead abduction of the arm
  • Dorsal Surface – The prominent spine of scapula divides the surface into a smaller supraspinatus fossa and a larger infraspinatus fossa. The depth of the supraspinatus fossa is filled by the supraspinatus muscle.

Costal Surface

The costal (anterior) surface of the scapula faces the ribcage.

  • It contains a large concave depression over most of its surface, known as the subscapular fossa. The subscapularis (rotator cuff muscle) originates from this fossa.
  • Originating from the superolateral surface of the costal scapula is the coracoid process. It is a hook-like projection, which lies just underneath the clavicle. The pectoralis minor attaches here, while the coracobrachialis and biceps brachii (short head) muscles originates from this projection.

Lateral Surface

The lateral surface of the scapula faces the humerus. It is the site of the glenohumeral joint, and of various muscle attachments. Its important bony landmarks include:

  • Glenoid fossa – a shallow cavity, located superiorly on the lateral border.
    • It articulates with the head of the humerus to form the glenohumeral (shoulder) joint.
  • Supraglenoid tubercle – a roughening immediately superior to the glenoid fossa.
    • The place of attachment of the long head of the biceps brachii.
  • Infraglenoid tubercle – a roughening immediately inferior to the glenoid fossa.
    • The place of attachment of the long head of the triceps brachii.

Posterior Surface

The posterior surface of the scapula faces outwards. It is a site of origin for the majority of the rotator cuff muscles of the shoulder.

It is marked by:

  • Spine – the most prominent feature of the posterior scapula. It runs transversely across the scapula, dividing the surface into two.
  • Acromion – a projection of the spine that arches over the glenohumeral joint and articulates with the clavicle at the acromioclavicular joint.
  • infraspinous fossa– the area below the spine of the scapula, it displays a convex shape.
    • The infraspinatus muscle originates from this area.
  • Supraspinous fossa – the area above the spine of the scapula, it is much smaller than the infraspinous fossa, and is more convex in shape.
    • The supraspinatus muscle originates from this area.

Borders of Scapula

  • Superior Border – It is thin and shorter. It presents the suprascapular notch near the root of the coracoid process. The superior border extends from the superior angle laterally towards the coracoid process.
  • Lateral Border – This is thick and presents infraglenoid tubercle at the upper end. The lateral or axillary border runs from the inferior angle to the lateral angle of the scapula.
  • Medial Border – This is thin and extends from superior to the inferior angle. With the arm resting by the side, the medial or vertebral border runs almost parallel to the spinal column.

Angles of Scapula

  • The superior anglemedial angle, is covered by the trapezius muscle. This angle is formed by the junction of the superior and medial borders of the scapula. The superior angle is located at the approximate level of the second thoracic vertebra. The superior angle of the scapula is thin, smooth, rounded, and inclined somewhat lateralward, and gives attachment to a few fibers of the levator scapulae muscle.[rx]
  • Inferior angle – is covered by the latissimus dorsi. It moves forwards round the chest when the arm is abducted. The palpation of the inferior angle provides a convenient method for following the movement of the scapula during arm motion. It is the lowest part of the scapula and is covered by the latissimus dorsi muscle. It moves forwards round the chest when the arm is abducted. The inferior angle is formed by the union of the medial and lateral borders of the scapula.
  • Lateral Glenoid Anglelateral angle of the scapula or glenoid angle also known as the head of the scapula is the thickest part of the scapula. It is broad and bears the glenoid cavity on its articular surface which is directed forward, laterally and slightly upwards, and articulates with the head of the humerus. The inferior angle is broader below than above and its vertical diameter is the longest. The surface is covered with cartilage in the fresh state; and its margins, slightly raised, give attachment to a fibrocartilaginous structure, the glenoidal labrum, which deepens the cavity. At its apex is a slight elevation, the supraglenoid tuberosity, to which the long head of the biceps brachii is attached

Processes of Scapula

  • Spine or Spinous Process –  is a triangular plate of bone with 3 borders and 2 surfaces. It divides the dorsal surface of the scapula into supraspinous and infraspinous fossae. The posterior border is called the crest of the spine which has upper and lower lips.
  • The Acromion Process –  has 2 borders, medial and lateral; 2 surfaces and a facet for clavicle.
  • The Coracoid Process – 
  • Acromion –  the clavicle (forming the acromioclavicular joint)
  • Glenoid cavity – humeral head (forming the glenohumeral joint)
  • The supraspinous fossa – supraspinatus muscle
  • The infraspinous fossa –  infraspinatus muscle, teres minor muscle
  • The subscapular fossa – subscapularis muscle, serratus anterior
  • Transverse scapular ligament and adjacent superior border of the blade – the inferior belly of omohyoid
  • Acromion – acromial part of the deltoid muscle, trapezius
  • Scapular spine – spinous part of the deltoid muscle, trapezius
  • Coracoid process – coracobrachialis, pectoralis minor, the short head of biceps muscle
  • Lateral border (margo lateralis) –  teres minor muscle, teres major muscle
  • Vertebral border (posterior) – levator scapulae, rhomboid minor muscle, rhomboid major muscle
  • Inferior angle – teres major muscle, a small slip of latissimus dorsi
  • Supraglenoid tubercle – long head of biceps muscle
  • Infraglenoid tubercle – long head of triceps muscle
  • transverse scapular ligament: crosses suprascapular notch, with the suprascapular nerve below (within the resulting foramen) and the suprascapular vessels above
  • coracoacromial ligament
  • coracoclavicular ligament
  • coracohumeral ligament
  • glenohumeral ligaments: upper, middle, and lower bands
  • acromioclavicular ligament (weak)

Ligaments Attachment of Scapula

  • The margin of the glenoid cavity gives attachment to the capsule of the shoulder joint and to the glenoid labrum
  • The margin of the facet on the medial aspect of the acromion gives attachment to the capsule of the acromioclavicular joint
  • The coracoacromial ligament is attached to the lateral border of the coracoids process and to the medial side of the tip of the acromion process
  • The coracohumeral ligament is attached to the root of the coracoids process.
  • The coracoclavicular ligament is attached to the coracoid process; the trapezoid part on the superior aspect, and the conoid part near the root. The coracoclavicular ligament is made up of 2 bands: the conoid and the trapezoid, both of which provide vertical stability. The coracoacromial ligament connects the coracoid process to the acromion.
  • The suprascapular ligament bridges across the suprascapular notch and converts it into a foramen which transmits the suprascapular nerve. The suprascapular ligament lies above the ligament.
  • The spinoglenoid ligament bridges the spinoglenoid notch. The suprascapular vessels and nerve pass to it.
  • The acromioclavicular ligament connects the distal end of the clavicle to the acromion and provides horizontal stability

Bursae of Scapula

There are two major bursae

  • Scapulothoracic Bursa, between the serratus and the thorax, and
  • Subscapular bursa – Subscapularis Bursa, between the subscapularis and the serratus. It is located between the tendon of the subscapularis muscle and the capsule. It functions to reduces frictional damage to the subscapularis muscle during movement of the glenohumeral joint, particularly during internal rotation.

The scapula is surrounded by an arterial anastomosis, the scapular anastomosis which aims to ensure an adequate supply of blood to the upper limb, but has added benefit of adequate supply to the bone itself. It consists of the:

  • Suprascapular artery
  • Dorsal scapular artery
  • Branches of the subscapular artery (i.e. circumflex scapular artery)

Best Ways to Get Scholarships in Canada

Best Ways to Get Scholarships in Canada /Scholarships are one way that international students can help finance their studies in Canada. This is why Scholarships in Canada is a sought after opportunity. Scholarships are non-repayable financial awards. They are generally allocated to students with outstanding academic achievements, although some also recognize volunteer and work experience. You must apply for some scholarships, but others are awarded automatically. Nobody would deny or pretend not to feel the impact of scholarships in the lives of graduate and undergraduate students. The ideology of scholarship is one of the ideologies that has been embraced by all. And considering the financial intensity of education which had left most students with fewer options. But depend on scholarships to further their educationEach scholarship has its unique requirements and its eligibility criteria and without being met the applicants should forget about the opportunity, therefore this article would be focused on exposing the dos and don’ts that are associated with scholarships in Canada and how one can easily obtain a scholarship in Canada.

It is obvious that nationality plays a very vital role in obtaining a scholarship, where it is easy for a citizen of a particular country to obtain a scholarship offered by the government of that country.

Get Motivated

The first step to finding money to help pay for your university education is all about YOU. The will and the motivation to take the time to search and apply for awards needs to come from within YOU. Yes, I know this sounds incredibly cheesy, but it’s true. No one can do this for you. You have to be willing to put in the effort and the hours if you want to win money for school.

No ifs, ands or buts about it. That’s just how it goes

But, try looking at it like this, ‘cause it might help put things into perspective. The cost of tuition each year for attending a university in Canada averages somewhere between $12,000 to $16,000. That’s a lot of money. Do you have that lying around?

I didn’t think so

Your options are to take out a loan (which you’ll still have to pay back), work during school, or find scholarships. Which of those sounds like the best option? An hour of working at Tim Horton’s earns you $14.00, but an hour of applying to scholarships could earn you $5,000. Use your time where it’s going to be most valuable to you.

Budget Your Time Effectively

Okay, so now you’re amped up to apply for scholarships. Awesome! Now, it’s important to budget sometime in your week to actually search and apply for them. The truth is, finding the best scholarships for you is time-consuming. The more effort you put into searching and applying for awards, the less competition you’ll face.

Having to put effort into applications, like writing an essay or gathering reference letters puts off a lot of people from applying. Don’t be one of those people. Try to budget at least 3 hours a week towards searching and applying for awards and you’ll be way ahead of the rest.

Contact your Financial Aid Office

Okay, so this might sound like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised at the number of people that don’t actually do this. If you’re still in high school, you’ll want to set up a meeting with your guidance counselor. If you’re about to graduate from high school or are already attending post-secondary and want to know about funding opportunities at a college or university, you can contact the financial aid office.

These offices are set up for the sole purpose of helping you find financial aid, so take advantage of it. They may be aware of awards and funding that you otherwise wouldn’t know about. So, go and chat with them! It might really pay off!

Scholarships Canada is Your Best Friend

ScholarshipsCanada is another great resource out there to help you find funding for your education. The best part? You can search for scholarships in your PJs at home!

The site has two helpful features that will help you find the right scholarships. The first is that you can create a free profile, and based on the information you share in your profile, Scholarships Canada will generate a list of matching scholarships and awards for you!

The second feature is the refine search tool. This will allow you to narrow your search based on the type of degree you’re looking to earn, the year of study you’re in, your academic average, and more! If you find some awards that look like they may be worth applying to, you can add them to your dashboard to easily find and apply later!

Understand the Requirements

Remember when I said to use your time where it’s going to be most valuable to you? That’s exactly what this is about. Don’t spend your time applying to awards that you’re not actually eligible for.

You might be sitting there thinking, “duh, obviously”, but we see so many awards receive applications from people who have absolutely no business applying to that award! Don’t let that be you.

Read the eligibility requirements through very carefully. If you’re not sure what one of the requirements means, or if it applies to you, ask the award administrator. It takes only a few minutes to ask questions, versus hours to write an essay for an award you can’t win.

Stay Persistent and Don’t Give Up

The key to succeeding at anything in life is persistence! (Look at all the great life lessons you’re learning by reading this article!) The same goes for applying to scholarships. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t win the first three, five or ten awards that you apply for! Keep trying and eventually, the hard work will pay off.

It’s also important to note that new scholarships and awards come up all throughout the year! Keep checking for new awards during all months of the year, as you never know what you might miss out on if you don’t.

Scholarship in Canada is possible for you

It is still possible to obtain scholarships in Canada without being citizens of Canada. The instruction that would be listed in this article is valid for citizens and non-citizens of Canada, some of the instructions that would be listed would be based on psychological perspectivism, and some plugins that would leave the scholarship board or providers with no choice than offer you the scholarship. Now before reading these instructions, it is crucial one understands why he or she wants a scholarship, and how it would help in his or her pursuit of excellence.

Some scholarships are offered entirely on academic merit or sporting achievements or even creative pursuits so be mindful of your skills and match them to what’s out there. Pay attention, and take notes to these.

Plan Ahead

Plan ahead, plan ahead,  plan ahead. I wish to say those words a thousand times would bring to your conception the importance of this phrase in landing you a scholarship.

One of the reasons why students don’t get Canadian scholarships or other scholarships from other parts of the world is the late application problem. And the fact that most students start looking for scholarship opportunities during their tertiary institution study, or at the point where they are in dire need for financial aid.

Understand the Requirement

The importance of understanding the scholarship requirements cannot be overemphasized, it is as important as the scholarship itself. This is applicable to all the scholarships you could think of,   including the scholarships in Canada.  Canadian scholarships have some unique requirements that if not duly met would definitely disqualify one the opportunity of winning that particular award.

Don’t spend your time applying to awards that you’re not actually eligible for,  because it reduces your chances of gaining a scholarship. You might be sitting there thinking, but we see so many awards receive applications from people who have absolutely no business applying to that award.

Read the eligibility requirements through very carefully. If you’re not sure what one of the requirements means, or if it applies to you, ask the award administrator. It takes only a few minutes to ask questions, versus hours to write an essay for an award you can’t win..

Passion and Personalities

The imprint of passion for scholarships cannot be overruled, and Canadian scholarships are not different. When there are hundreds of applicants for an award the ones that show the applicant’s personality and passion for the topic really stand out. Judges usually read a lot of applications (10-50 can be common!) after a while they can all meld together. It’s a breath of fresh air to read one that feels like you’re sitting across from the candidate–and you want to keep talking to them!

Research More and More

Don’t enter any scholarship contests in Canada that ask for application fees. There are billions of dollars worth of available scholarship funds in Canada that do not require fees waiting to be claimed. In addition, be wary of signing up with any scholarship sites or search engines that require a fee to access their databases.

Instead, start by using free, reliable scholarship search engines such as World Scholarship Forum.  This site uses reliable algorithms to match you with scholarship opportunities you may be uniquely qualified for based on income, background, gender, region, extracurricular activities, and academic interests.

Extra Effort for Particular Things

Some education consultants estimate that supplying optional information on free scholarship search engines can generate twice as many matches, which means twice as many opportunities to earn free money for college in Canada.

Play the numbers by Top 200 Universities in Latin Americaapplying for as many applicable scholarships as possible. Keep in mind that smaller scholarships often have fewer applicants than those with higher monetary rewards, so your chances are higher. But before you spend too much time on any one application, look carefully at all the requirements so you do not waste time on a scholarship for which you are ineligible.

Determined you are all To get a scholarship

Well began is half down. This is somehow the most important aspect of this point. It is not possible to get what you don’t believe in. Therefore,  apply for every scholarship with the inherent belief that you would get the scholarship. It doesn’t only motivate you to go the extra mile, it also unlocks the possibility of you being awarded the scholarship.

Be enthusiastic

Never miss to follow up with the companies you have applied to. ‘Thank you’ e-mail after the interview sets you apart from other candidates applying for jobs in Canada. this helps in showing the recruiters your interest in getting hired.
