Levator Scapulae

The 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.
