Levator Scapulae arises from the transverse
processes of C1-C4 vertebrae, and inserts on the circumference of the superior
angle of the scapula. It is the central member of the muscular floor of the
posterior cervical triangle.
By stabilizing the scapula and the head simultaneously, the levator scapulae may be utilized to move the first four cervical vertebrae inferolaterally.
