Sometimes a group of muscle fibres from teres minor may be fused with infraspinatus.
Supraspinatus muscle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (558 words)
The supraspinatus muscle is supplied by the suprascapular nerve (C4, C5, and C6), which arises from the superior trunk of the brachial plexus and passes laterally through the posterior triangle of the neck and through the scapular notch on the superior border of the scapula.
It is often described as being the initiator of abduction as it is the main antagonist muscle for this movement during the first 15 degrees of its arc.
The supraspinatus muscle is one of the musculotendinous support structures called the rotator cuff that surround and enclose the shoulder.
