What movements is subscapularis muscle perform? Due to its unique axis of pull, from the proximal humerus to the costal scapular surface, subscapularis medially rotates (internal rotation) the humeral head within the glenoid fossa. To a lesser extent, subscapularis also adducts the arm. The sequence of these two movements is seen in walking when your arms swing.
What is supraspinatus action? As part of the Rotator Cuff, supraspinatus helps to resist the gravitational forces which act on the shoulder joint to pull from the weight of the upper limb downward. It also helps to stabilize the shoulder joint by keeping the head of the humerus firmly pressed medially against the glenoid fossa of the scapula.
What is the action of the subscapularis at the shoulder joint? The actions of the subscapularis muscle on the arm and shoulder include: Medial rotation of the humerus. Adduction of the humerus. Stabilization of the shoulder joint.
